David Scott’s bold designs have a striking quality about them; they’re contemporary and masculine without being harsh or cold. In his new book, Outside the Box, the designer reveals his creative process, starting with the sleek, black mood box he fills with shells, textiles, photographs, and other trinkets that inspire him and his clients. Scott introduces each of his interiors this way, from an urban apartment—which features a box lined with a peacock feather, Bulgari cufflinks, and lush velvet—to a modern beach house, with its geode-encrusted tablescapes and wooden side tables that mimic the sea glass and other natural elements Scott used as inspiration. Together, the rooms and boxes tell the full story of each project—and command your attention with every turn of the page. – Veranda Magazine
