New Interior and Design Books You Need This autumn

Although I already have endless stacks of design and interior books, I still want more. Sometimes I just want to have some amazing interiors to be inspired by other times I want to learn something more about the designers I love. Today, I have found just four which should get you through the new couple of gloomy months. Pour a glass, light a candle, lean back and enjoy!

The New Mediterranean, homes and interiors under the southern sun, published by Gestalten, €39.90

The New Mediterranean shows you how to bring this sumptuous, sun-drenched minimalism into your own home. A welcoming, new, down-to-earth modernism is gaining momentum, from California to Morocco, Portugal to Mexico. This direction in interiors combines Mediterranean folkloric influences with a contemporary aesthetic—taking cues from sunny landscapes to embrace warmth, light, and organic elements. The New Mediterranean showcases inspiring residences and vacation homes around the world that combine rustic, earthy tones with colorful fabrics, ceramics, rattan furniture, and Berber carpets which are offset by whitewashed walls, concrete, brick, terracotta tiles, and glass – very soft minimalism.
