Product description

This series will bring together unique, inspiring interiors by renowned photographers worldwide and is made in cooperation with photo agency Taverne Agency. The series will consist of small, practical books, 'Homes World Wide - Compact' as well as luxurious interior books, 'Homes World Wide - Deluxe'. 'Vintage Living', the second book in the 'Compact' series, focuses on one of the biggest interior trends of the moment: decorating your house with vintage furniture, and explores everything about mixing and matching old and new materials. Every vintage-style home is as individual as the people who live in it. Encompassing everything from the unshamedly romantic to the cool, the quirky and the kitsch, 'Vintage Living' takes an up-close-and-personal look inside some of the world's most inspirational vintage-style homes. With chapters dedicated to specific areas including living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms, it's easy to imagine using the ideas on the pages to help you create personal spaces within your own home - rooms that manage to avoid looking like museum exhibits while at the same time being full of that one-off character and charm that defines vintage living. With illustrations drawn from Taverne Agency's unparalleled collection of stylish homes worldwide, taken by some of the world's finest photographers.
