… its rich and varied traditions of design and decoration are being invigorated and modernized in a way that celebrates and builds upon traditions rather than destroying them. Travelling through the seasons to the four corners of Turkey, from Istanbul to the Aegean and Cappadocia, the celebrated photographer Solvi dos Santos has captured the soul of the Turkish home.

The range of the homes shown is as varied as the homeowners; from fashion designers and architects to artists, vintners and authors. All the homes featured have an authentic Turkish style, whether in the choice of their colours, their fabrics, their furnishings or their architecture.

Berrin Torolsan, making full use of her unrivalled knowledge of this wonderful country, allows us to glimpse into the interiors of these homes. She uncovers the stories of each house, and gives a sense of the geography and history of the location. The result is one of the freshest and most inspirational style books of recent years.

Solvi dos Santos is one of the best-known international lifestyle photographers. Her many publications include Simply Contemporary and Contemporary Natural, both published by Thames & Hudson. Berrin Torolsan is the publisher of Cornucopia, a magazine for connoisseurs of Turkey. She has also contributed to many publications, including The World of Interiors and Gardens Illustrated.
