The second edition of The Fundamentals of Interior Design provides a thorough introduction to the key elements of interior design and the ideas that underpin them. The book describes the entirety of the creative process, from researching initial ideas to realizing them in three-dimensional form.

The book features a variety of diagrams and talking points to encourage students and practitioners to think about key issues such as understanding spatial relationships and the use of sustainable materials. This second edition includes new case studies focusing on well-known international interior design studios, such as Conran and Partners, UK, Slade Architecture, US, Gensler, US and award winning architects Chae-Pereira in South Korea. The introduction of interviews with contemporary interior designers allows readers an insight in to the working world of interior design. The new projects allow students to explore what they have learned in each chapter through experimentation and these activities encourage creativity and further learning.

Japanese interior design is marked by contradictions. Simple color schemes belie complex and playful concepts, hyper-modern spaces are created using only traditional materials, and the relationship between nature and human architecture is sometimes tense, sometimes harmonious. Some aspects do remain constant: stylish minimalism rules, the color palette tend to be warm and light, and the designers always seem to invent extraordinary solutions to ordinary challenges. This volume, now as softcover edition, presents Japan's most exciting contemporary interior design projects, with a range of areas that includes hotels, offices, shops, bars, restaurants, and private homes. From world-renowned designers to up-and-coming young talents, the land of the Rising Sun proves to be a land of endless inspiration and creativity.
