Seventeen homes demonstrate how Axel Vervoordt incorporates nature, art, and timeless interiors to create living spaces that encourage self-reflection, inspiration, and happiness.

For a half-century, Axel Vervoordt's vision has been defined by a continual quest for harmony, beauty, and the creation of interior atmospheres that are rooted in the past, connected to the future, and imbued with today's comforts. These eighteen residences -- from an urban New York penthouse or Moscow apartment to a waterfront estate in New England, and from a Tokyo dwelling to a Bordeaux wine château or a Wabi-Sabi farmhouse--reveal how art complements architecture and the elements of nature in an alchemy of Vervoordt expression. Portraits of each residence--including the Vervoordts' own homes in Venice and Belgium -- feature sweeping vistas of the surrounding landscape and a tour through the interiors. Each detail -- from the materials used to the graceful placement of a well-chosen object--offers deep insight into the Vervoordt design approach and abiding principles for living and working well.

Photographed by Laziz Hamani with text by Michael Gardner, the featured interiors range from urban penthouses in New York and London to a Wabi barn in Flanders and a Venetian palazzo, to a coastal home in New England and an island retreat in Ibiza. Each home’s unique atmosphere inspires serenity and blends art, architecture and nature in an alchemy of Vervoordt expression.
