According to popular wisdom, beauty is within. But nothing is said about how to get it out, or what on earth you can do with it. In this book, the Belgian decorator Geoffroy Van Hulle demonstrates how it can be seen: beauty, on the inside of a house but also on the inside of a life. Photographer Raf Ketelslagers captures this vision in incredible images, capturing inspirational interiors, while writer and TV presenter Jo De Poorter describes things that can be beautiful, compelling and imposing outside the walls of the house: from the Académie Francaise, the Frick Collection, Dusty Springfield and Levi's jeans to a handful of brioches, Bree Van Der Camp, two or three requiems, Viagra, and the holy virgin Mary herself, in the form of a piece of soap. Text in English, French and Dutch.Geoffroy Van Hulle knew he wanted to become an interior designer at the age of 6. He didn t know the word "decoration" yet, but when he saw how the Christmas presents were decorated around the Christmas tree, he felt the emotion of beauty, warmth and richness. He now wants to evoke the same emotions with other people. Shortly after he got his first assignment to decorate an entire house, at the age of 22. Word spread that this young man was a fantastic designer and new assignments followed soon after. Since then, he has developed towards a designer with clients all over the world. He decorates houses, apartments and restaurants in the Benelux, the United Kingdom, France and the United States. His style is contemporary eclectic with baroque and classical influences. He is not afraid of colour, character and a stuffed crane here and there. As significant sources of inspiration he mentions Leonardo Da Vinci, Tony Duquette, Saint Nicholas and his mother.
