Minimalist Interiors in the Grand Style
Restrained elegance is timeless, whether in the setting of a castle, villa, apartment or cottage. Here is a luxurious compendium of minimalist but grand properties of all styles, photographed by the celebrated Fritz von der Schulenburg.
‘Fritz von Schulenburg is one of the leaders of the pack, celebrated and admired for his beautifully lit, pin-sharp yet atmospheric images … large and sumptuous’ – The Times
‘Shows that minimalism is not a byword for asceticism but, on the contrary, can encompass exquisite design, rich textures and expensive materials … beautiful photographs … a sumptuous and inspiring book’– House & Garden
The book presents an extraordinary range of properties from around the world, from Baroque-style Swedish palaces to stone houses on Lamu, from Loire Valley châteaux to whitewashed holiday homes on Patmos. Whatever the location, period or style, all the rooms share a captivating simplicity that defines contemporary taste.
Chapters on Rhythm, Colour, Light, Space, Texture and Composition outline the essential elements, followed by gloriously photographed examples and quotes from personalities in the world of interior design, among them David Collins, Nicholas Haslam, John Stefanidis, and Axel and Boris Vervoordt.
Complete with a source directory of contact details, this is both an inspiring and practical volume guaranteed to appeal to anyone interested in homes and interiors.
Fritz von der Schulenberg is the internationally renowned photographer of many of the world’s most beautiful interiors. Karen Howes’s books include Private Ireland and Vacation Homes and Perfect Weekend Hideaways. She also runs The Interior Archive, a picture library and photographic agency.
