Living in Style London
A must-have for every interior design aficionado
Discover urban residential oases and their inspiring, customized interior design concepts
With impressive pictures by renowned London interior photographer Andreas von Einsiedel
There is no other European capital where your home is (literally) as dear a possession as it is in London, a
place where your postal code can be a powerful calling card. Anyone who
has ever strolled through the city’s various neighborhoods, passed its
modern skyscrapers, and entered into one of the many Georgian or
Victorian buildings, has probably experienced a great curiosity, if not
envy, about residing in this genteel and historical, yet thoroughly
modern metropolis. Examples of breathtaking design abound in Living in Style London,
as readers will see how London interior designers and architects create
residences perfectly tailored to the people who live there, while
making optimal use of the available space. Photographer Andreas von
Einsiedel and author Karin Graabaek Helledie, both residents of London,
escort us on a trip through the imposing residential landscape of this
storied British city, a place as diverse and varied as its homeowners.
Renovated industry lofts, carefully restored row houses with
light-flooded bay windows, or glass oases with spectacular views of the
Thames are presented with informative accompanying texts, showing off
the most impressively beautiful homes found in the English capital.
Born in Denmark, KARIN GRAABAEK HELLEDIE developed her sense for good design and furnishings in the cradle! For more than twenty years, the journalist and book author (Living in Style Scandinavia,
teNeues), who lives in London, has been writing about trends, interior
design, and travel for international publications like Danish newspaper, Børsen, and interior magazine, RUM. As an homage to her adopted home, she also wrote an intimate city guide called, London My Love!
From private residences to hotels and registered historic properties, ANDREAS VON EINSIEDEL, an interior photographer born in Germany and living in London, knows how to make a room pop. For more than thirty years,
Andreas von Einsiedel’s work has been published in
renowned international publications including House & Garden, Homes & Gardens, Architectural Digest, and Elle Decoration.
He also does regular work for The National Trust, a non-profit
organization for the protection of historic buildings in Great Britain.
