Totally Out There

Interior designer and luxury lifestyle consultant Maria Brito opens up her eclectic world of art, style and culture

Venezuela-born Maria Gabriela Brito (pictured at left) always knew she wanted to be a designer, architect or artist. And, luckily for us, the luxury lifestyle consultant and Harvard graduate has achieved all of these goals. Now Brito is adding author to her seemingly never-ending list of skills with a new book, titled Out There: Design, Art, Travel, Shopping.

Highlighting the search that goes into each of the wonderfully quirky, modern and captivating works of art Brito finds for clients of her company Lifestyleing to put in their exquisite homes, Out There follows her travel-filled life and reveals how she became one of the most in-demand decorators today. (She counts Gwyneth Paltrow and Tracy Anderson as fans.) Brito shares images of the New York City spaces she has designed, lists her favorite galleries and shops from around the world, and explains the art of living. If you’re like the many others who would like a taste of the Brito lifestyle, this book is for you.
