The first book from the AD100 interior designer renowned for joyful, vibrant, intensely personal homes imbued with art, pattern, and craftsmanship

A decidedly global outlook best described as ‘a punk take on preppy’ brings passion and a playful spirit to AD100 designer Rodman Primack’s projects. His work with his partner Rudy Weissenberg has garnered attention over two decades for breaking hierarchies by layering textures, patterns, art, and bold colors to create vibrant, joyful spaces.

The first book from the globetrotting designer, Love How You Live takes readers to thirteen international projects—including Primack and Weissenberg’s own homes—each reflecting the culture and conditions of their locations and the passions of their inhabitants while embodying Primack’s radical philosophy. The book reveals that spontaneity, juxtaposition, collection, and emotion in any setting lead to satisfying spaces, and that objects we value need not be expensive, making high design relatable.

Callout features highlighting fourteen artists and artisans living across the United States and around the world encourage readers to look to their own local sources and craftspeople—from farmers markets to art fairs—for inspiration and accent pieces to give rooms depth, joy, and personality. A belief that beauty can always be found in site-specific authenticity enriches all the projects presented in this book, spanning locations from Mexico City, Guatemala, and London to New York, California, Kentucky, Hawaii, Cape Cod, and Miami.

Primack and Weissenberg’s international interiors practice is driven by cultural amplification and cross-disciplinary conversations, and is focused on collaborative relationships with architects, artists, and craftspeople. The firm is included in Architectural Digest’s AD100 list of the world’s top design talent, the Wallpaper US 300, and has had projects featured in the New York Times T MagazineWWorld of InteriorsVogue MexicoCasa Vogue BrasilElle Decor JapanArchitectural Digest, and Architectural Digest Spain, among other publications.
