Textile designer Lisa Fine shares the many sources of inspiration for her coveted hand-printed linens and her personal interior design aesthetic

In Near & Far, Lisa Fine invites us into her homes in Dallas, New York, and Paris and then takes us along as she visits the places and people who have been her greatest sources of inspiration. Among her favored treasures are the Mughal palaces and gardens of India, the 18th-century home of Carl Linnaeus in Sweden, the whitewashed retreat of interior designer John Stefanidis on Patmos, the idyllic country house and garden of London-based designer Penny Morrison, and the storied house in the Tangier Casbah belonging to collectors Jamie Creel and Marco Scarani. Evocatively photographed by Miguel Flores-Vianna and with a foreword by style editor Deborah Needleman, Near & Far not only provides a trove of design ideas, but also offers advice for anyone interested in giving full expression to their personal style.


“Lisa Fine visits tastemakers’ homes around the globe in her book, revealing kaleidoscopic pastiches of pattern and colour.”
House & Home
“Divided into three sections, Flowers, Colletors & Faraway Places, these interiors reflect the distinct personalities of their owners. Readers will relish in Fine’s many rules of decorating such as, ‘Don’t be afraid of prints and pattern, and ‘imperfections make a room interesting.’”
“Lisa Fine’s new book [is] a stunning compendium of interiors that inspire her work.”
“In her new book the Mississippi-born textile designer leads readers through both her own far-flung homes and ones in which she has found inspiration around the globe.”
