Spain - its cuisine is as colourful as the country is large. While to the north the traditions of the wandering herdsmen are still maintained and tracking dogs search out truffles, exotic fruits that entered the country with the Arabs flourish in the south. This Culinaria title whets your appetite to explore Spain with all your senses. It describes an incomparable panorama of cultural and culinary traditions, as well as an overview of the most important winegrowing regions of the land. Its 380 pages and more than 1,000 photographs clearly illustrate how landscape, climate, and various cultures have left their mark on the diverse cuisine of the country - from Alboraya in the Levant to Zaragoza in the north, from the omnipresent garlic mayonnaise alioli to zamburina mussels. Numerous recipes drawn from every region ensure that the fascinating reading also becomes a feast for the palate.

The loft, which is essentially an urban construction, is an ideal way of converting one’s own home to a unique space that reflects and extends the personality of those who dwell there. The intention of this book is to demonstrate that not only is it possible, but also that often these compact solutions can stand on their own in comparison with the enormous lofts of London or Manhattan. And even though most of them are small, all of them demonstrate how it is possible to convert what could be a small apartment into a spacious loft. This is achieved by using great care in the design.

There is no other European capital where your home is (literally) as dear a possession as it is in London, a place where your postal code can be a powerful calling card. Anyone who has ever strolled through the city’s various neighborhoods, passed its modern skyscrapers, and entered into one of the many Georgian or Victorian buildings, has probably experienced a great curiosity, if not envy, about residing in this genteel and historical, yet thoroughly modern metropolis. Examples of breathtaking design abound in Living in Style London, as readers will see how London interior designers and architects create residences perfectly tailored to the people who live there, while making optimal use of the available space. Photographer Andreas von Einsiedel and author Karin Graabaek Helledie, both residents of London, escort us on a trip through the imposing residential landscape of this storied British city, a place as diverse and varied as its homeowners. Renovated industry lofts, carefully restored row houses with light-flooded bay windows, or glass oases with spectacular views of the Thames are presented with informative accompanying texts, showing off the most impressively beautiful homes found in the English capital. Born in Denmark, KARIN GRAABAEK HELLEDIE developed her sense for good design and furnishings in the cradle! For more than twenty years, the journalist and book author (Living in Style Scandinavia, teNeues), who lives in London, has been writing about trends, interior design, and travel for international publications like Danish newspaper, Børsen, and interior magazine, RUM. As an homage to her adopted home, she also wrote an intimate city guide called, London My Love!

Cool, creative, and not afraid to buck convention, Amsterdam makes the hearts of architecture and design lovers beat a little faster. You’ll find furniture that is refreshingly different, yet still functional; hotels where creative minds feel at home; restaurants that are a joy for both the eye and the palate; and museums and concept stores around every corner. Good design is in the genes of the capital city of the Netherlands, visible almost everywhere you look—in part, thanks to pioneers like Marcel Wanders, Piet Boon, and the Droog Design Collective. So it’s no surprise that MENDO (“the coolest bookstore for visual beauty”) chose to make its home in Amsterdam. We worked with interior design insiders to bring you Living in Style Amsterdam, the latest volume in the series of the same name, and share the dare-to-be-different Dutch design mentality. Selected private apartments, carefully restored 17th-century canal houses, and extravagant high-design hotels and penthouses all opened their doors to us. And what lies behind them? Innovative living spaces and furnishing concepts freed from transitory trends and the talented visionaries who created them. Meet internationally-recognized icons and discover talented newcomers to the Dutch design and architecture scene like Joyce Urbanus, Dax Roll, and James van der Velde. Living in Style Amsterdam is a timelessly beautiful photo book that will provide a wide range of ideas for every design lover and whet your appetite for your next trip to this inspiring city!

Home of Lagerfeld to Lanvin, Paris extends its style influence well beyond Fashion Week. By the time the renowned furniture trade show Maison et Objet opens its doors, the French fashion capital reveals itself to be a barometer of taste and aesthetics and a magnet for the who’s who of the interior design world. Caroline Sarkozy is one of the insiders who knows precisely how to lend apartments, houses, and lofts that “je ne sais quoi” factor. Sarkozy, who lives and works in Paris, has tremendous expertise and a unique, elegant style that is perfectly at home in luxurious interiors around the world. She grew up in Asia, the Middle East, and the USA, and together with Belgian photographer Jean-François Jaussaud, she whisks us into the personal living spaces of the most beautiful arrondissements of Paris in the second edition of Living in Style Paris. From timeless, understated interiors and ornate, yet refined Art Deco apartments to spectacular dream oases at the city’s edge: captured in opulent pictures and carefully curated, this book provides an intimate look at the work of design greats such as Frédéric Méchiche and Elliott Barnes, and the exclusive hideaways in the metropolis on the Seine that are normally hidden away from prying eyes.

The strange piece of art that hangs over the bed. The well-organized sneaker collection. Artifacts—sinfully expensive or of sentimental value—from all over the world. The things you find in other people’s homes spark the imagination, inspire one’s own design efforts, and speak volumes about the character, dreams, and essence of the residents. Over the past years, Welt am Sonntag visited the homes of creative workers, artists, and style influencers all over the world and shared them with us via home stories: the daughter of design icon Verner Panton, the son of the legendary artist, Fornasetti, an attorney with a mania for collecting, a jewelry designer in London, an American hairstylist to the stars, and Berlin’s most controversial architect. Instead of high-gloss photography productions where every object is carefully placed at the correct angle in order to showcase “perfect” taste, the images here are intimate encounters on familiar terrain that give us insight into unexplored worlds: private, curious, and eccentric. Style experts and co-authors, Adriano Sack and Dagmar von Taube, have compiled these visual short stories into a fascinating photo volume that is a wonderful source of ideas for your own home—the Mick Jagger portrait by Andy Warhol above the fireplace mantle, the vase you sculpted and fired yourself, and the terribly impractical gigantic sculpture in the dining room that just make life better. In other words, do try this at home!

Like British pop music, Italian food, and German Cars, Dutch interior design is evolving into a trademark with its own quality seal. Leonie Hendrikse and Jeroen Stock are becoming the archetype of this new mastery in design. Under the Stock Interiors label, they fuse the Dutch interior design creed: joyful experimentation unbound by convention with their own unique touch. The imaginative designs created at Stock Interiors center on the idea that memories are the colorful foundation of our lives. Their passion is learning about the homeowner’s personality and memories, and translating them into an interior design that fits like a glove. You will fall in love with the featured homes and apartments that immediately embrace you with a wonderfully homey ambiance. Dutch Interior Design introduces you to the sumptuous designs of Leonie Hendrikse and Jeroen Stock with beautiful photography and incisive commentary. Superstar saxophone player and Stock Interiors customer, Candy Dulfer, compares their artistry to her own, saying “Great music is like a jigsaw puzzle: oddly-shaped interlocking pieces form a unique composition. Open this book to discover that the creations of Stock are just like a beautifully-composed song.”

Beginning with Filoli, the century-old, forward-looking estate situated just south of San Francisco, and closing with The Park, the first public garden ever created in Las Vegas, John Hill takes readers on a worldwide tour, one per year, of beautiful, inspiring, creatively designed, and historically significant landscapes. From the leafy promenades along the Ljubljanica River in Slovenia and the lush, tropical gardens at Lunuganga in Sri Lanka, to the Peace Memorial Park in Japan and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, each of these public sites is currently accessible—a fact that makes this grouping a superb “must-see list” for landscape enthusiasts. Double-page spreads feature color images paired with Hill’s insightful texts. An introductory essay lays out Hill’s selection criteria and an overview of major landscape design innovations and trends from 1917 to 2016. Fans of landscape design will treasure this compendium and students in the field will come away with a greater understanding of how and why the creation of outdoor public spaces has evolved over time.

From vertical living to upscale townhouses, these city abodes showcase inviting and innovative metropolitan interiors and lifestyles. Around the world, more and more of us are moving to cities and establishing our homes there. The urban landscape offers a multitude of enticing options: from cozy apartments to chic duplexes to historic townhouses.

This book takes readers across the thresholds of these contemporary dwellings. Conversations with those who outfit the spaces with those who live within the lavish domiciles paint a narrative of modern materials and classic style. Bohemian Residence’s detailed portraits provide a tantalizing tour through contemporary interiors in cities worldwide.
