This exquisite book showcases the stunning properties of the world's leading design connoisseurs, including Jasper Conran, Lynn Guinness, Vanessa Branson, and Helen and Brice Marden, who have transformed Marrakesh's exotic style into unexpected but elegant expressions. The story of design in Marrakesh begins with the contributions of Bill Willis, Yves Saint Laurent, and Pierre Bergé, who fearlessly fused Moroccan elements--zellige tilework, rugs, pottery, fountains, woodwork, metalwork, and tadelakt wall treatments--with a luxuriant mix of furnishings from around the world. We are invited into such lush private places as the gardens of the Villa Oasis, designed by Madison Cox, and the Bulgaris' tranquil riad. Full of personal insights, Loum-Martin explores how international design-savvy individuals continue to incorporate such exuberant designs in their work.
Today's Marrakesh style appeals to a wide variety of tastes--from formal to quirky, from rustic to refined--and is suitable for diverse settings. Eco-friendly materials, including earthenware and natural fibers, contribute to these appealing interiors and gardens. Superbly photographed, Inside Marrakesh abounds with a wealth of unique design ideas.

At the end of the nineteenth century, Brussels architects reacted against academicism with a new movement, called Art Nouveau. Victor Horta's style was more organic, while Paul Hankar preferred more geometric designs. Together they developed a style of architecture, that would soon become internationally famous.
In just 15 years, from 1893 onwards, hundreds of Art Nouveau buildings popped up across Brussels. Initially, the great innovators took the lead, but soon their assistants and other imitators, who were also inspired, in the early nineteenth century, by the Viennese Secession and other trends in European Art Nouveau followed suit.
Initially, this style perfectly corresponds with the ambitious of the industrial upper middle class. They wanted to leave their mark on the urban landscape with this new and often exuberant architecture. Gradually, larger groups of the population started to also use the Art Nouveau style for very different purposes, including schools, social housing, townhouses, warehouses, a house of the people...
This guide suggests nine walks, in various neighbourhoods around Brussels, allowing you to discover the many different facets of Art Nouveau in architecture. Learn more about the personality of several leading architects and decorative techniques, like sgraffito. The author also interviewed several owners, conservators or restorers of Art Nouveau buildings, who are helping to preserve this exceptional heritage.

"Lifestyle journalist Veerle Helsen went 'out-of-office' for six months, bought an old camper and travelled by herself along the Spanish and Portuguese coastline. Ever true to her motto ""surf, see, sleep & eat"", she combines three of her passions in this book: surfing, travelling and discovering hidden gems. How about a heavenly holiday mansion where there's a tree growing through the roof? Or an architectural public swimming pool that's hidden between rocks and the sea? She searched and found camper spots so quiet she could stay there for days without seeing another soul. Secret beaches that aren't indicated on the map where one can sit back and watch the waves.
Veerle Helsen dismisses the classic tourist image of Spain and Portugal and writes about a completely different world: untouched, fierce and free, with little beach bars serving the very fish they caught earlier that day, and roads wrapping themselves around cliffs and dunes, sheltered by pine trees and maintaining the vi ew of sandcastles on the beach. While she drove, her drone was beside her on the passenger seat and her surf board was on the roof.
This guide transcends the clichés and avoids the classic tourist traps. 'Sea' you soon!".
