This striking book showcases fresh, contemporary interiors that reflect Jennifer Post’s “pure space” philosophy: a serene, meticulously organized volume that offers a peaceful break from a busy world. From lofts in New York City to Miami high-rises to Palm Beach villas, each interior is immaculately conceived, detailed, and constructed—the epitome of pure, tailored modernism.

In her own words, Post 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, Post has been dedicated to her pure aesthetic vision, resulting in a timeless body of work.

This is the first monograph on designer Post, who for a decade has been included among Architectural Digest’s coveted AD 100 list of the world’s top architects and designers.
