Eminent tastemaker Axel Vervoordt recounts the pivotal moments in his life that formed the foundation of his mindful philosophy and signature aesthetic. Axel Vervoordt is one of the world's foremost tastemakers. Revered for his discerning eye in art and interior design through a career that has spanned more than fifty years, he is renowned for his captivating minimalist interiors. An iconic figure at the most prominent international art fairs and exhibitions, he incarnates a singular philosophy for how to live mindfully and with style. Axel recounts stories from the people who most influenced his life--his family, friends, patrons, artists, colleagues, clients, and unforgettable mentors--in this memoir that is personal, funny, insightful, and permeated with humility, wisdom, and lessons learned. He reflects on the key moments in his life--Rudolf Nureyev's visit to the Vervoordts' castle, Axel's youthful acquisition (and subsequent sale) of a Magritte, his discovery of Japanese Gutai art, his legendary Venice exhibitions, and his experience working for notable clients and friends. He details his greatest successes and his personal regrets, while offering firsthand insight into the work that has forged his reputation. Axel is a larger-than-life and inspiring man, and this book offers snapshots from his life, painting an overall portrait of his guiding philosophy.

The Russian home is truly eclectic, a surprisingly harmonious mingling of color and pattern, carved furniture, glass, textiles, porcelain, and religious icons. And whether a city apartment or a country dacha, the Russian house is typically warm and welcoming—a haven in a harsh climate. Russians treasure their possessions, adore color, texture, and pattern, and effortlessly create interiors that are a reminder of the Russian tradition of hospitality. The Russian House invites the reader inside 12 beautiful private homes; in 200 color photographs and a fascinating text, this sublime volume offers a rare look at the history, romance, and enchantment of the Russian dwelling. The work of photographer Andreas von Einsiedel has appeared in many magazines, including World of Interiors, Architectural Digest, and Vogue Living; among his previous books is The Provençal House: Architecture and Interiors. Writer Ella Krasner was born in Russia and now lives in London.
