Maria Gabriela Brito transforms living spaces with carefully selected works of contemporary art, but she doesn’t stop there. “Who says that an entire room can’t be inspired by Frida Kahlo’s life, Marc Jacobs’ runway collection, or Sophia Loren’s movies?” asks the Venezuelan-born, New York-based interior designer in a new book that is as colorful and exuberant as its author. Out There begins with a memoir-cum-mood board introduction to Brito and some of her favorite artists before showcasing apartments that have benefited from her vibrant makeovers and ends with a “go-to guide” sourcebook for design newbies and veterans alike.
