Southern interior designer Ray Booth is not only a design partner in the prestigious McALPINE firm, but also an independent practitioner of interior design. Booth spent successful tenures in the offices of such distinguished design talents as John Saladino and Clodagh, returning to the south to work at McALPINE with Bobby McAlpine, his former professor at Auburn University School of Architecture. Booth has received national recognition from the most prestigious lifestyle publications, including Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Coastal Living, and Veranda for his international projects.
"Booth creates rooms meant for living - opulent and photogenic to
be sure -- but with a soul that portends an invitation to sit,
relax, converse, and enjoy."
"When I pored over this spectacular book, I had the same
reaction I always have when I see Ray's work. Overwhelmed! The
homes Ray designs are filled with windows, wood, and open spaces
that meld with the outdoors. His use of antiques, modern pieces,
beautiful fabrics, sculpture, and art are breathtaking."
-Teresa Hatfield, Spendid Sass "Trained as an architect, designer Ray Booth is a partner in the prestigious McAlpine firm, founded 35 years ago. Booth's debut monograph presents his most celebrated Nashville residences, including his own home, as well as previously unpublished projects in Palm Beach, Louisiana, New York, Texas and the Hamptons. The spaces convey Booth's command of mixing modernism with a sense of place and history. Hallmarks of his designs include architectural furniture, drapery walls, captivating mirror and art displays, and a blend of antiques with contemporary pieces." --Serendipity
