"Axel Vervoordt's new book Living With Light is simply stunning. It features page after page of perfectly edited spaces with a few key accessories, gorgeous detailing and art. I love how he takes such a simple nuetral space above and gives it a unexpected pop with those lucite coffee tables. This gorgeous book is one I will turn to again and again if only to dream of having a space like this." ~AStylistsLife.com

As a source of inspiration for decoration, the book was useless to me: Every aspect, including architecture, art work, design and materials of interiors, is out of reach by many orders of magnitude. We don't live in a Belgian castle, don't have any ancient sculptures from China, Egypt or Rome, or grand bookcases from the 18th century. We tend to want to cook, eat and sit, entertain guests, watch TV some time, have lighting which works at night, and occasionally tackle the mess of papers/cats/plants. Any such mess would feel like a sacrilege in Vervoordt's interiors.
Studying this book gave me great pleasure; I loved most of the interiors, and dreamed how it would feel to own or rent these places. I usually manage to get this type of pleasure from visiting the Metropolitan or the MOMA (and other museums). If esthetic pleasure is what you seek, I recommend this book highly.

Beautiful work, great colors, very nice
