155 Residence of Tory Burch in New York City. Interior design by Daniel Romualdez and Tory Burch, photograph by Björn Wallander

Now this is the coffee table book you want displayed! The cover alone is a statement, and I quickly made sure it has found its way to the top of my book stack. Beige is Not a Color, and I couldn’t agree more! Carlos Mota’s new book is a treasure trove of his phenomenal photography of some of the top interiors, as well as extraordinary far-off places all over the world.

You will no doubt recognize some of these chic homes, like Tory Burch’s NYC mantle above. In our current pinterest-driven world where gray and beige (greige) is everywhere, Carlos embraces color. It shines through in every picture, transporting your senses to far away places. This book is about discovery. You may have glossed over these images in a magazine, but Carlos brings them back for you to absorb in their entirety. We should all continue to embrace the title of this book, and follow the movement away from greige.
