Lisa Fine, Deborah Needleman


In Near & Far, Fine invites us into her homes in Dallas, New York, and Paris and 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 eighteenth century home of Carl Linnaeus in Sweden, the whitewashed retreat of interior designer John Stefanidis on Patmos, and the idyllic country house and garden of London-based designer Penny Morrison.

Other aesthetic sparks to Fine’s imagination include the oversize flower paintings and drawings of Scottish born artist Sarah Graham, the bohemian flair of Charlotte and Alex di Carcaci’s London home, and the extraordinary natural history collection of Jamie Creel and Marco Scarani’s New York shop, as well as their storied house in the Tangier casbah. Evocatively photographed by Miguel Flores Vianna, Near & Far not only provides a trove of design ideas but offers advice for anyone interested in giving full expression to their personal style.
