Product info

Follow leading interiors photographer Simon Watson into a fantastical world of beauty in The Lives of Others: Sublime Interiors of Extraordinary People. Since the 1990s, Watson has been one of the most prolific chroniclers of remarkable spaces, gracing the pages of some of the most renowned interiors publications with his stunning atmospheric shots. In this impressive tome, you’ll find a collection of fantastical residences captured over the course of his illustrious career. Journey along on a visual tour of famed shoe designer Christian Louboutin’s fanciful Parisian apartment; Guinness heir Garech de Brun’s hillside retreat in County Wicklow, Ireland; architect Arlo Brandlhuber’s brutal yet poetic Antivilla in Potsdam; interior designer Roberto Peregalli’s dreamy Tangier riad; the Duchess of Alba’s Palacio Liria in Madrid; artist and industrial designer Guillermo Santoma’s colorful Casa Horta in Barcelona; and many more splendid residences around the globe. Watson’s masterful shots highlight some key elements found in these highly personal environments — from historic textiles and artwork to impressive architectural details — while also capturing the creativity and personality of their esteemed inhabitants. Each featured space is also paired with a brief introduction from the photographer, sharing an intimate description of the location along with anecdotes and memories from his time shooting there. Filled with a strong sense of history and place, this book will be an endless source of inspiration for designer lovers and world travelers alike.
