Taschen’s Home Turf

By on January 12, 2012 in Books, Inspiration, Interiors 1

As I might have mentioned I adore books of all shapes and sizes, however I have a particular passion for coffee table books – the heavier the better! One of my favourite publishers is Angelika Taschen who publishes books under the Taschen label. Her focus is on publishing beautiful books about art, interiors, design, gardens – all topics I love. The photography is always breathtaking and I especially love the interiors featured – always original and inspiring.

Over the years I have added to my collection, the titles I have so far include: Gardens in France, Provence Interiors, Seaside Interiors and Living in the Countryside. The last on the list I made my husband carry around London in a backpack for a whole day while sightseeing. He has not let me forget it! (I bought it at the start of the day not thinking… You will understand when you see the size of it!)
Anyway I love my Taschen books and I hope to continue adding to this list in the future!

When I stumbled across some photos of Angelika Taschen’s personal home I was intrigued as she clearly has access to some of the most amazing homes in the world…. It was interesting to discover that her own living space is actually filled with not very much!
It is an open, clean, neutral space filled with natural light and some amazing chandeliers and of course, books!

    Did you know there is a stockist in the Cape Quarter?

    Just behind the new CQ shopping centre, on one of those little side streets & they sell Taschen pretty much exclusively.

    It’s called Ampersand Books.
