B The best of Turkish interior design today, from traditional to hip, from ancient to modern.Turkey is a country undergoing spectacular transformation But unlike many other such modernizing processes, this one does not involve the destruction of its rich and varied traditions of design and decoration Nowhere is this better seen than in the pages of this book, in which the celebrated photographer Solvi dos Santos has traveled throughout Turkey during all four seasons to capture the soul of the contemporary Turkish home.Here are the intense charm of the minimalist, pine scented interiors of the Black Sea the historic details of an antique monastery hidden in the Aegean the lan of whitewashed Mediterranean courtyards fragrant with jasmine the elegance of the Ottoman seaside mansions of the Bosphorus the stark beauty of medieval, sun baked, stone houses in the deep southeast and the intimacy of a pied terre in Istanbul s shady backstreets.Berrin Torolsan s text provides a look inside these homes, and into the different worlds of their inhabitants, from hip designers, poets, and artists to teachers, farmers, and country gentlemen, from household names to unknown aesthetes She uncovers the stories of each house and gives a sense of the geography and history of its location 250 color illustrations....

At Home in Turkey Reviews
This book features 27 Turkish properties, many in Istanbul but the rest spread across the country. Each is given a mini essay and a photo spread, the latter being a mix of wide-angle shots and details. The book is divided into four sections, one for each season. This honestly seemed a little pointless, but the introductory double page for each section has interesting text on characteristics of each season in Turkey and a good mix of photos.
Lovely book, beautiful photos and colors.
Having just returned from trip to Turkey I was keen for a book that would keep holiday memories alive everytime I opened it. This book is full of beautiful photos that capture the stylish Turkey. Although I did not visit any of the homes in the publication I did visit the regions and see the variations in products and homewares on offer. The book more than met my expectations.
