The current dominant interior style is surprisingly eclectic. In this book, art collectors, architects, designers and antiquarians mastering this trend, allow us to enter their private spaces. They mix different styles to form a new unity, combining old and new, sleek and baroque. No sterile showrooms are shown here, but real houses, decorated by these creative minds. The eclectic style does not have any rules and underlines the strong individual character of the decorator.
Art historian Piet Swimberghe and photographer Jan Verlinde work for numerous magazines such as Elle Living, Cote Ouest, MTC and Weekend Knack. They have produced books on architecture, design and interiors and written many articles for European interior magazines.
