An artist's documentation of the residences of 89 prominent creatives, including chefs, interior designers, and dealers in antiques and ceramics.

SJ Axelby breathes new life into interior portraiture by painting the beloved spaces of 89 top creatives, including ceramicists, antiques dealers, interior designers, florists, and chefs. Each interior photo includes a fun and offbeat conversation with the owner, in which we learn priceless tips on design, cocktail preferences, life hacks, and much more—all of which are watercolored by SJ. The result is a sumptuously illustrated documentation of a home or unique endeavour.

Painting interior spaces has a long history of serving as a record of opulent homes and offering a window into earlier generations' lives and times. There is a rebirth of interest in our living environments now, but there isn't a book to inspire you that follows the tradition of illustrated home portraiture. SJ Axelby's Interior Portraits will transport you to a variety of distinctive and colourful homes as seen through the eyes of the artist.

Similar to how a painting is composed, a genuine and distinctive scheme must have a balance of shape, form, contrast, colour, pattern, and texture. The original watercolours by Sarah-Jane are included in this pictorial guide, together with scrapbook pages annotated with design advice from the owners of each room. This will inspire and equip the reader to attempt new things in their own homes. Featuring mouthwatering compositions overflowing with colour and pattern and showcasing the actual joy of a home that reflects its owner's personality, it is a creative who's who of the global design community. Kit Kemp of Firmdale Hotels has written the foreword.
