The Way We Live is the ultimate guide to home making, presenting in a single source of reference design ideas from across the world, from different cultures and from different times.
Gilles de Chabaneix’s atmospheric and inspirational images feature interiors and exteriors, settings and details, and offer a visual commentary on the textures, colours and forms that make up the environments we shape for ourselves.
Where we live need not define the way we live. We can take lifestyle ideas from across the globe and use them to create a unique approach to the design of our own homes. Beautiful and practical, The Way We Live is much more than a decorating guide, it is a treasury of ideas for living – the style book to end all style books.
