Dark Nostalgia is a design book featuring 26 of the darkest, most old fashioned homes, restaurants, and hotels.
From the Introduction:
The projects that follow show that we have become nostalgic for a time that never existed. They demonstrate, through this re-creation of history's
deep colors, polished woods, velvets, furs, leather, and burnished metals, that we would rather live by creating our present through an
imagination of our past. We love these dark materials for their ability to evoke emotions and moods, for their warmth and acceptance of the
somber sides of life. We are re-creating our own history and embracing the darkness that comes with it.
