When words are combined with captivating photographs, then the mental journey we embark upon becomes much more zestful which is why coffee-table books are our escapism of choice.
But don’t take our word for it, check out these six gorgeous publications that we can’t have enough of. From the immaculate interiors of acclaimed Belgian interior designer Axel Vervoordt, to the lush, plant-filled abodes of Plant Tribe, step into some of the world's most interesting homes. Miss the outdoors?
