“These are skills that have served them well throughout long careers, but perhaps most important of all is a shared ability to intuit the character of a building and immediately understand its previous life and future potential.”

For the book, interior designer David Mlinaric teamed up with photographer Derry Moore to present the best of British interior design.

Derry has been taking photographs for as long as David has been transforming interiors, and it has been over 50 years since they first collaborated on a shoot for Vogue magazine.

“In the late 1960s, Derry was commissioned by Vogue to photograph David’s dining room in Tite Street,” said Emily.

“And so began over 50 years of collaboration, with Derry photographing countless projects by David including all of his own houses.

“Derry studied painting at Oscar Kokoschka’s School of Seeing in Salzburg (Die Schule des Sehens) which, he says ‘opened his eyes’ but it was while working with David, that he ‘learnt how rooms should look’.

“In the years since beginning his career as a professional photographer, he has documented some of the most extraordinary buildings on the planet – a few of which feature in this book.”
