There is no other designer quite like Anouska Hempel, and this volume is both a celebration of her achievement and an intimate insight into it. Here is a designer whose vision and creative flair know no bounds, whose interiors and landscapes are truly incomparable. The book is divided into thirteen chapters, each highlighting one of her many stunning achievements. There is Beluga , Hempel's own opulent yacht, masquerading as a black-sailed pirate ship; the luxurious interiors and perfectly manicured gardens of Cole Park, the quintessential English country house; the clean lines of the Grosvenor House Apartments in Mayfair; and more. With over 400 stunning colour photographs of interiors, architecture and gardens, this beautiful volume is itself a masterwork of art, a joy for lovers of distinctive design and an essential reference for design professionals.
