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.”

Beginning with Filoli, the century-old, forward-looking estate situated just south of San Francisco, and closing with The Park, the first public garden ever created in Las Vegas, John Hill takes readers on a worldwide tour, one per year, of beautiful, inspiring, creatively designed, and historically significant landscapes. From the leafy promenades along the Ljubljanica River in Slovenia and the lush, tropical gardens at Lunuganga in Sri Lanka, to the Peace Memorial Park in Japan and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, each of these public sites is currently accessible—a fact that makes this grouping a superb “must-see list” for landscape enthusiasts. Double-page spreads feature color images paired with Hill’s insightful texts. An introductory essay lays out Hill’s selection criteria and an overview of major landscape design innovations and trends from 1917 to 2016. Fans of landscape design will treasure this compendium and students in the field will come away with a greater understanding of how and why the creation of outdoor public spaces has evolved over time.
