This lavishly illustrated book of getaway homes is filled with lush photographs that illustrate the taste and soul of both the home owner and the designer. With inspiring interiors, along with how-to advice on creating the perfect escape, this book profiles seven types of retreat: contemporary cabins that offer a modern take on forest dwelling; minimalist refuges that are both spare and soulful; dramatic decor hideways; colourful cottages filled with art; reimagined farmhouses; coastal hideouts from the seaside to the jungle; and high concept homes in far-flung locations.
