Of the many exciting design books out this fall one of the most highly anticipated must surely be that of photographer Ivan Terestchenko. His book Beyond Chic has just been released by Vendome Press and I have to say the book lives up to its title.
For the past few decades Ivan has been capturing the world's most stylish interiors, people, and events for the most influential magazines. In doing so he has had privileged access to the inner sanctums of some of the most creative individuals of our day which he now shares with us in Beyond Chic. Not surprisingly these are not overly-decorated nor predictable abodes but truly personal, stylish, and creative homes; One almost feels as if they were trespassing.
If a picture is worth a thousand words this book has a billion while still short on terms. The short introductions are soulful and descriptive while letting the work, the photographs, speak for themselves.
Definitely add this book to your fall book order and you won't be disappointed.
