Inspiration Beyond Style

Solvi dos Santos

The ultimate inspiration for anyone wanting to foster their own style

See Inside


Here is a collection of ‘real homes’ that reflect their owners’ personalities rather than simply follow current trends.

Through her sensitive and perceptive photographs, Solvi dos Santos shows how to make living spaces that satisfy fundamental needs, but are also private works of beauty and self-expression, whether a warehouse in Paris, a converted church in the Hudson Valley, New York, or a farmhouse in Ibiza.

With hundreds of beautiful photographs accompanied by texts from Phyllis Richardson, this book resonates with bold imagination and a refreshingly broad vision of design, appealing to everyone who is seeking inspiration and a source of ideas for creating a home that breaks away from the stereotypical, sterile approach – one that is both a place with spirit and has that essential spirit of place.
