"Corey Damen Jenkins’s first book offers an enticing glimpse into the newly christened AD100 designer’s bold interiors. Subsections focus on areas of his expertise, rife with examples of comfortable, lush lounging spaces, elegant architectural details, and his celebrated mastery of color. A foreword by Jamie Drake spells it out: 'The peacock has historically been a symbol of renewal and immortality, and in ancient mythology its tail is seen as having the ‘eyes’ of the stars. I think of Corey, and his work, as this gorgeous bird in the best sense. Personally, he is imposing and serene, yet full of vivacity. Likewise, the spaces he designs are restful yet deliciously piquant, always with a daring touch of boldness (or quite a few) added assuredly into his schemes.'" — ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST.COM

What you might not know, though, is how that love of color and eye for design got started. In his just-published debut book, Corey shares the story of his upbringing and how influential the city of Detroit is to his style. The book also does something very few other design books do: teach." —ONEKINGSLANE.COM
