I spied this book the other day, resting on a coffee table in a furniture-store vignette, and quickly became totally absorbed in it.
India Modern, by London-based writer and photographer Michael Freeman, is packed with breathtaking images of an India you never imagined.
Featuring innovative interpretations of classic Indian motifs and styles, the homes, hotels, and other interiors and exteriors Freeman captures maintain an exotic sense of place while also pushing the design envelope.
It's India like you've never seen it, and -- if you're anything like me -- it'll make you want to visit the Land of Spices more than ever.
