Editorial Reviews

Review

“The renowned antiques dealer and interior designer, celebrated for fashioning refined spaces that present a mix of contemporary art and Old Masters, has compiled this gorgeous book examining the importance of light and space.” ~Architectural Digest

"His previous book, Timeless Interiors, has become a cult classic. His new one, Living With Light will surely give devotees another case of the vapors. Vervoordt is drawn to antiques with great character, and he gives them ample, nearly worshipful room to shine." ~The New York Times

"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

“…Vervoordt continues to dazzle with his seeming simplicity…but in reality, it’s a forceful commitment to absolute harmony and beauty.” ~PaperCity

"...Axel Vervoordt is the designer that other designers bow down to time and again. His style is simple and spare but mixes antiques and modern pieces perfectly." ~Habitually Chic

“…calm yet eclectic interiors lavished with natural light…” ~New York Cottages & Gardens

“This is an elegant, sophisticated, refined book. Add this to your collection of design books, and look at it as a master class in restraint and depth, and how the play of light works in shaping a design.” ~thevisualvamp.blogspot
 
“This inspiring and higly expressive volume is a series of interiors around the world—that present very clearly the concept of light and their effect on interiors.” ~Style on Salonist
 
"Axel Vervoordt: Living with Light
is truly a standout. His ability to mix the old with the new into gorgeous and harmonius interiors is truly on display here and it’s a much needed text book for any interior designer who wishes to study a rare master of European design.” ~Chameleon-interiors.blogspot

Gorgeous, quiet, calming and inspirational. It helps to have exquisite items to deploy in beautiful rooms, but as Andy Goldsworthy has shown, even something as pedestrian as rocks can be made into art.

I'm never disappointed by Mr Vervoordt! Beautiful interiors, photographs and book. We all should live so minimal yet extravagant! Maybe his best for me.
