Apartamento is widely recognized as today's most influential interiors magazine. International, well-designed, and simply written since 2008, it is an indispensable resource for individuals who are passionate about the way they live. Apartamento breaks the traditional magazine boundaries that separate home design from homeowner, and offers readers a glimpse inside the lived-in, often cluttered homes of celebrities and industry legends such as REM frontman Michael Stipe and indie screen queen Chloe Sevigny. The World of Apartamento is a celebration of the magazine's 10th anniversary and features the best and most inspirational interiors from the publication's pages. Like the magazine itself, the book is a carefully developed editorial mix - high-quality writing and beautiful photography - that communicates genuine stories and intimate moments. With more than 300 photographs and an eclectic mix of subjects like Francois Halard, Glenn O'Brien, Florence Welch, Paz de la Huerta, and more, the book is an inspiring look at individual design choices. "Twice a year for the past ten years, Apartamento magazine has offered a look inside the world's greatest homes. The word home, rather than house or interior design, is key with the magazine's ethos. In showing readers the bookshelves, bedspreads and balconies of extraordinary people, the publication offers continuous mounds of helpful advice into how to live life happily, clutter and all. With back issues hard to track down by now, Apartamento fans will be pleased to hear that an anniversary tome looking back through issues has now hit the shelves.
