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. Here, the designer reveals his guiding philosophy and pursuit to uncover the profound sense of well-being that a home can evoke.

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 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—offer deep insight into the Vervoordt design approach and abiding principles for living and working well.

A home should be an oasis, a haven that fosters a sense of well-being and joy. Axel Vervoordt demonstrates how—through the creation of timeless interiors—a home can convey a spirit of generosity, love, and emotion to all who cross the threshold.
