Real Homes: Inspiration Beyond Style

Author(s): Solvi dos Santos


"Real homes" are a reflection of their owners' personalities and interests rather than a homage to current trends. In her perceptive photographs, Solvi dos Santos shows a range of living spaces that satisfy fundamental needs but are also private works of beauty and self-expression.

This collection of homes, from a warehouse in Paris to a converted church in the Hudson Valley to a farmhouse in Ibiza, reveal spaces that are original, functional, and aesthetically pleasing. Mixing materials, periods, and styles--country comfort with contemporary, traditional finishes with sleek and modern materials--the spaces communicate an effortless effect and a sense of everyday living. With hundreds of beautiful photographs accompanied by texts by Phyllis Richardson, the book will appeal to everyone who is seeking inspiration to create a home that springs from one's personal history and taste.
