Its almost summer and we are ready to take flight. Journalist Thijs Demeulemeester and art historian Jacinthe Gigou just published an incredible compilation of beautiful homes around the world that are now functioning as “house museums”. The book features 150 houses scattered all across the globe. It includes private houses with unique interior and exterior architecture and incorporates some of the most memorable designs hidden in remote areas. These houses draw a pilgrimage to the four corners of the world for all architecture enthusiasts. These properties all dating from the 20th century each have a unique history and allure. Among the many architectural masterpieces collected by Belgians Thijs Demeulemeester and Jacinthe Gigou, we find the Villa Savoye by Le Corbusier, the Villa Planchart by Gio Ponti or the Villa Majorelle where Yves Saint Laurent stayed.
