The Ultimate Bath (Rizzoli, 2022) by Barbara Sallick spotlights 150 luxurious bathrooms conceived by top architects and interior designers, including local luminaries such as Barry Dixon, Donald Lococo and Mona Hajj. A cofounder of Waterworks, Sallick selected retreats that surprise and enchant, from classic to contemporary.

The Houses and Collections of Marjorie Merriweather Post: The Joy of It (Rizzoli Eclecta, 2022) celebrates the philanthropist and art patron’s residences and personal collections. Written by Hillwood’s curatorial staff and full of lavish photography, the book opens the doors to Post’s illustrious homes, from Florida’s Mar-a-Lago to her beloved estate in DC. Hillwood’s French drawing room is pictured below.  

Beyond Bold: Inspiration, Collaboration, Evolution (Pointed Leaf Press, 2022) traces the evolution of DC landscape firm OvS. Featuring 320 pages of vibrant photography, the book written by OvS principals pays tribute to the firm’s late founders, Wolfgang Oehme and James van Sweden, and details how the duo’s legacy lives on.
