Creative people's stunning homes, all over the world. --New York Times
Two great talents--a former magazine editor and a
photographer--turned their keen eyes on top influencers in the
rarefied world of high design. The result is a book that earns
pride of place on any coffee table. --House and Garden The
Authentics chronicles the fascinating lives of . . . some of our
favorite Southerners. Georgia native Miles Redd, South Carolina
native Kelly Wearstler, and Texas native Katalina Hicks appear in
separate chapters to share bits of wisdom on both style and on
life. --Haskill Harris, Garden and Gun
Forget the Malibu beach house or the Moroccan garden or the color-soaked bungalow. What The Authentics delivers on is personality: It's a glorious dive into the homes of creative people around the world. Consider this a design lover's bedtime read. --Sunset magazine
Before landing at Schumacher, [Caponigro] worked for years as a design editor, and this experience manifests in her deft ability to capture the unique personality in each of her subjects--an attribute further underscored in Acevedo's photography. --Architectural Digest Melanie Acevedo is one of the most well-known and well-respected photographers in the design industry . . . her latest book project, The Authentics, is one that I am eagerly anticipating. The Authentics profiles luminaries from the worlds of art, design, and fashion including Kelly Wearstler, Ashley and Katalina Hicks, Nicky Haslam, and Joseph Dirand among others, who go beyond simply living stylishly, but also apply a sense of authenticity and individuality to everything they do. --Paloma Contreras, La Dolce Vita
