Take a tour of the most exquisite intimate retreats — inside and out.
These beguiling, intimate, and restorative spaces are marvels of design. From serenely dreamy bedrooms to charming reading nooks and sophisticated studies, Veranda reveals a spectacular collection of indoor and outdoor havens. Organized by room and function, this gorgeously photographed book presents stunning kitchens with cerused-oak cabinetry, suspended shelves, and Parisian bistro chairs; grand gardens with sculptural benches, hammocks, and riots of foliage; and luxurious dining and living rooms.
Throughout, designers reveal how they created and why they cherish these retreats, while "In the Details" sidebars call out elements like curated collections, hidden alcoves, and showstopping entrance halls that add intimacy and uniqueness to these private, personalised hideaways.
