    This stunning new book from designer Jennifer Post showcases her fresh, contemporary interiors and reflects her “pure space” philosophy. From New York City lofts to Palm Beach villas, each interior is immaculately conceived, detailed, and tailored.

    In her own words, Jennifer demonstrates how she transforms living environments into elegantly edited spaces, using clean lines, white surfaces that reflect natural light, and open areas that allow a home to breathe. Since the age of eight, when she traveled to neighbors’ houses offering to organize their closets and rearrange their rooms, Jennifer has been dedicated to her pure aesthetic vision.

    Once again we are giving away a book. One lucky All the Best reader will received a copy of Jennifer Post: Pure Space. Simply leave a comment telling us your idea of an elegantly edited space. A winner will be announced April 10, 2012. Good Luck.

      Admire Jennifer Post and her excellent editing skills for pairing life down to extraordinary and elegant living devoid of clutter. My mantra for a well edited space are three words, crisp, clean and modern.
      If one has 2 or 3 words at the start of a project, everything needs to fit and the editing process is that much purer. I would love to win this book – we did graduate from the same University.

      White is the ultimate color. It is crisp, clean and refreshing. It goes with everything.

      What I love about Jennifer’s designs . . . . is the attention to both large and small details in a simple space. The small detail is needed to balance the mass amounts of large, austere surfaces. Perfect example – the bike spokes to bring the room into balance with the sold matter of the man statue. Love it! Not easy to do these types of spaces well….. ~anna

      A truly elegantly edited space is like an idea for a great story but, with the end written before the middle or the end. Then, one allows ones emotions and soul to feel the space. Finally, one must trust the heart to complete the final chapter….complete the space. And, like any good story one should feel totally taken away to a world of utter satisfaction.

        I meant to say with the end written before the middle or the beginning!

      Would love to have this book. A space like the photos is my idea of a well edited space, lots of art and simplicity.

      Beautiful images. Elegant, calming, clean aesthetic, infused with light, art, textures. The beauty of a well edited space is like Mozart – there is complexity in the simplicity.

      In a well edited space, the room is a shell that encloses the furnishings, and the shape, silhouette, and colors of the furnishings are the design elements.

      I would love to add Jennifer’s book to my design library!

      I would love to receive the book, inspiring in its beauty. Editing is the most important thing in Interior decoration, we seldom have a blank canvas to work on, the final design should always reflect the life of the owners.

      In this regard it is all about the celebration and focus of space and collections. I love using white for this purpose. My constant go to white is Ben Moore’s Super White. I strongly believe in the emotion of a space and a well edited space with perfect flow, for me sings the perfect song. The distance between objects and walls are just as important as the objects collected. And the reason we collect is that there is an emotional bond to what is being collected and careful editing brings this forward. The interplay of people, space and things is paramount , clearly and for me a well edited and fluid space is as a choir to the heavens. I too would love this book!

      Jennifer is one of my favorite designers when it comes to contemporary. She knows how to use white! I hope to see what she has done for Simon Cowell’s place in Lo Angeles, CA. !

      The recomposition of white light says so much more about the color.
      There is the one prism with a calm meditative spiritual reflection and
      the color emerging through the art and furnishings.
      It seems whatever object you place in that space , traditional or contemporary or both
      in an an eclectic design , there is balance and they are reunited in a single point of white light.
      These interiors reflect the composition of lights and harmony.

      Jennifer Post’s work inspires… A Miami Beach High-Rise designed by her and feat. in AD July 2009 is a dream. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen these images… Floor to ceiling windows, the ocean, the Venet sculptute…

      my idea of an elegantly edited space – minimal, white, warm, with a touch of whimsy

      Jennifer Post’s minimalism shows a unique balance of form, comfort, and courage. Love it.

      My idea of an elegantly edited space – provide lots of built-ins to hide clutter; use many shades of white – to keep the look clean, yet not too stark; provide an ‘anchor’ for the room – such as a grand piano – so that the space does not float; use flowing white curtains – to filter the light; and install fabulous lighting!

      Love combination of light, use of sculpture and art, glass, contemporary lines and most of all how successfully it all connects with nature no matter where it is located. Have you ever seen Sean Henry sculptural work? I think his work would rest easily with your work.
      Thank you, loved it.

      Editing…be it a cabinet, closet, cupbard or drawer always results in clearing the “stuck flow” and opens you up for more good in your life. It is a great thing!
