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.”

Private paradises nestled in the backyards of homes. Rooftops that act as community gardens. Edible patches of beauty hidden within city blocks. Evergreen shows the verdant aesthetic statement that allows city dwellers to bring nature back into the every day and quenches urban gardening desires. Living with plants is mutually beneficial; beyond the exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen, leaves, flowers, and stems bring a warm and individual charisma to any space. Throughout this engaging collection of projects, urban gardening is complimented by a softer side: balconies that add an extra relaxing touch to a morning cup of coffee, flowers that provide calming fragrances throughout the home, or romantic blooms that feed the soul rather than fill a plate. Evergreen also inspires those who already live in the midst of lush horticultural and sustainable oases. Straightforward plans and examples illustrate how to transform unused spaces, both indoors and out, into flourishing and functional patches. Sketched floorplans visually detail a myriad of projects including which plants thrive in dark living room corners or which foliage enjoys the damp environment of a bathroom. The profiles of both professional and hobbyist plant lovers provide an engaging guide to productively getting one’s hands dirty; herb gardens on fire escapes, greenhouses that double as living spaces, and community gardens atop roofs all awaken growing curiosities. From cactus farmers and florists to shop owners and activists, let Evergreen’s cast of characters guide you in making and maintaining a green utopia and in quenching gardening longings.

Potatoes are synonymous for simple, inexpensive, and unfailingly delicious food. Since its introduction to Europe in the 16th century, the humble root vegetable has conquered all continents and is, in many countries, the most used and favorite food ingredient. Its taste appeals to each of us. The countless possibilities of cooking them contributed to developing national dishes based on potatoes, which are part of each country s heritage and pride. Yet potatoes are more than a banal and all-too-basic vegetable. This book takes you from the origins of the tuberous in Peru, where it was a constitutive part of the Inka civilization, to the royal tables in Europe, whence the potatoes became fashionable food for the rich and the poor alike."
