9783899555929: Living Under the Sun: Tropical Interiors and Architecture

Where is paradise: at the end of the earth
or at home on the sofa? For many, the word
paradise conjures up images of a sunny
beach with palm trees. For others, it might
mean pristine nature, a lively city with
much to see and do, lazing in a hammock,
or relaxing anywhere with a cool sea breeze.
All of these versions of paradise can be
found in the tropics.
Tropical regions around the globe have
always offered an extraordinarily diverse
range of impressions and inspirations. Yet
only recently have countries such as Brazil,
Colombia, Thailand, and Australia begun
to gain international recognition as go-to
sources for contemporary design ideas.
Today, the tropics offer style aficionados at
least as many, if not more, new things to
discover than classic design destinations
such as Italy or Scandinavia with their
established brands.
Living Under the Sun is the first comprehensive
showcase of modern tropical living
styles and their designers. Presenting tropical
interiors at the nexus of timeless tradition
and self-confident freshness, the book
brings their colors and elegantly easy-going
ambience to life. It captures the refreshingly
different coziness of rooms that seem
to flow seamlessly into the exteriors surrounding
them and are thus ideally suited
to local climates and weather occurrences
such as tropical storms.
Living Under the Sun features striking living
and working spaces in Asian homes,
African apartments, and Latin American
haciendas that meld aesthetics with functionality
in exceptional ways. The book also
explores the myriad stylistic devices that
characterize tropical interior design such
as precious woods, natural stone tiles, colorful
glass mosaics, and abundant vegetation
in the form of orchids, ferns, and other
lush plants. It includes stunning examples
of shady green patios, stylish terraces, and
enviable gardens.
Readers of Living Under the Sun are sure
to revel in the tropical charm of the book’s
select interiors, décor, and design. Perhaps
they will even be inspired to create their
own paradise at home.

Review:

"Gestalten's new hardcover tome . . . showcases beautifully designed and decorated houses that happen to be located in the middle of tropical wonderlands . . . There is a home of everybody's dreams within these pages."
Cool Hunting
"Encompassing a wide range of tropical interiors and architecture, from sprawling villas and city houses, to rainforest cabins and beach shacks, the book features the best of what contemporary design has to offer . . . Hopping between Latin America, Asia and Australia, Living Under the Sun visualizes an easy-going way of life that we have always hazily dreamed of but never in such refreshing, colourful detail."
