Following the bestseller Axel Vervoordt: Timeless Interiors, this volume of fifteen new interiors expands on the Vervoordt vision for creating exceptional homes that combine natural elements, antiques, and fine art.

The art of harmonious living is extolled in this volume through twenty bespoke interiors designed by the Axel Vervoordt Company. Each room incorporates natural light as an essential component of design, along with other elements-water, metal, wood-blended with a modern aesthetic and punctuated with fine art. The Vervoordt concept of the home is revealed through a refined balance between art and nature to create timeless living spaces. The range of featured properties includes homes by the sea, as well as in urban and rural locations, demonstrating a breadth of styles possible within the essential Vervoordt design principles.

Photography by Laziz Hamani brings into focus both the unique design details and the carefully constructed interiors that fuse to create each striking setting. These exceptional residences are rich with inspirational ideas to incorporate into your own home so that you can celebrate your living space in the singular Vervoordt style.
