Photographs by Roland Beaufre, Foreword by Roberto Peregalli and Laura Sartori Rimini and Rupert Thomas
Dreamy tropical estates curated by the most renowned interior designers and tastemakers come alive in this vibrant collection of images brimming with sumptuous style.
French photographer Roland Beaufre’s debut monograph showcases some of the most exclusive, elegant properties under the sun, offering a glimpse into the private retreats of style icons, designers, and creatives who found solace in special, sun-washed places.
Whether situated in a secluded desert, along the Mediterranean coastline, or on a Caribbean beach, each property exudes decadence and warmth. From the villa of Bernard-Henri Lévy and Arielle Dombasle in Tangier to Farah Diba Pahlavi’s house in the Moroccan village of Taroudant, and from Henri Garelli’s Provençal-style abode in Corsica to Deborah Turbeville’s home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and exotic palaces in India and Thailand, readers will discover twenty-one gorgeous properties whose interior design, architecture, and landscapes capture the vibrancy of these lush locales. With forewords penned by the founders of Studio Peregalli and Rupert Thomas accompanying Beaufre’s timeless photographs, this new volume will inspire wanderlust among interior design and architecture aficionados everywhere.
