World–renowned interior visionary Veere Grenney takes us on an in– depth tour of his impressive residences in Tangier; Suffolk, England; and, for the first time, his new London home. The book begins with his beloved Tangerine villa—a decade–long labor of love and must–see for all garden enthusiasts, completed with the help of friend and expert in wild garden design Umberto Pasti and a regency gazebo designed by architect Cosimo Sesti. Next, we visit the Temple, his 18th–century Suffolk “pocket Palladian” set within the parkland of Tendring Hall and with views of the fishing lake and geranium–filled garden. Grenney called this picturesque sanctuary home for much of 2020. Finally, with exclusive photographs and annotations, Grenney opens the doors for the very first time to his brand– new London home. Grenney has been praised by Schumacher creative director Dara Caponigro as knowing “when to pull out the stops and when to show quiet restraint, creating interiors that are, at once, serene and exciting and never forgetting that rooms should be comfortable and liveable.” This elegant volume showcases his skill in marrying traditional styles with contemporary living, and how his spectacular career has influenced the styling of his personal spaces.
With more than 30 years of experience, Veere Grenney remains a frontrunner of interior and fabric design, collecting accolades from House & Garden and Architectural Digest, among other publications. After training under the exceptional Mary Fox Linton and David Hicks, Grenney soon became a director at Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler, developing an appreciation for quality materials. He established his own company in London 20 years ago and continues to build upon an impressive global portfolio.
