Here is a beautifully photographed collection of real homes that stand as a reflection of their owners personalities and an expression of their interests rather than a homage to current trends. The homes featured are from all around the world, whether in Europe, America, Asia or Africa, and will inspire readers to create their own unique style. From a modern house near Cape Town to an innovative Indonesian home-office, an 1830s barn purchased in New Jersey and then transported in pieces to Marthas Vineyard, or the home of a Norwegian collector of African artifacts in Ibiza, the homes vary enormously in location, size and style. There are ten chapters, taking you through each area of the home. This book has a refreshingly original approach and will appeal to everyone who is seeking inspiration for their own spaces.
