Praise

“The architect William T. Georgis makes glamorous and naughty environments for ‘merchant princes,’ as he describes his clients: art-world and real-estate heavies like Aby Rosen, for whom he renovated the interiors of Lever House in Manhattan. Sixteen of Mr. Georgis’s projects are collected in Make It Fabulous: The Architecture and Design of William T. Georgis. The monograph manages to turn the polite conventions of design books upside down.” —The New York Times

“For his first monograph, AD100 architect and designer William T. Georgis didn’t opt for an eponymous title. That would be too simple, especially for someone known for such distinctive and, occasionally, challenging spaces. Instead, he went with the directive he most often hears: ‘I’m always having clients say, “Oh yeah, just make it fabulous.”’ And fabulous the book is.” —Architectural Digest
 
Make it Fabulous will drive connoisseurs of design porn wild.” —Vanity Fair
 
“A gorgeous coffee-table book from architect and designer William T. Georgis will give you serious real estate envy. From Park Avenue penthouses to Palm Beach vacation homes—and even a Chinese restaurant—Make it Fabulous explores the public and private spaces created by Georgis, renowned as both an architect and a decorator.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Architect and interior designer William T. Georgis is known for his ability to blend high-style architecture and modern decorative arts, and now he’s giving out all his insider tips in his new book, Make It Fabulous: The Architecture and Designs of William T. Georgis. The 248-page tome offers an in-depth look at 16 houses and apartments he worked on throughout his career, spanning from Park Avenue to La Jolla, California.” —InStyle.com

“Uptown but impertinent.” —Elle Decor

“Georgis, who boasts a seriously boldface clientele, is famous for his exceptional interiors. He favors an integrated approach that includes designing custom furniture and accessories—no real surprise, considering Georgis grew up admiring the works of Frank Lloyd Wright and later studied under Michael Graves at Princeton.” —Modern Luxury Interiors California

“‘I love to shock,’ Georgis concedes in Make it Fabulous. Yet careers built singularly on shock value have a short shelf life. What elevates his interiors above tongue-in-cheek one-liners are the multiple layers of art and design knowledge, historical context, and narrative thrust that underpin them.” —Introspective Magazine
