Beyond Chic by Ivan Terestchenko

Internationally acclaimed Ivan Terestchenko studied Art History at the Ecole du Louvre and was a painter until the age of 30 when he switched to photography. He landed his first assignment with Vogue France. Soon after, Ivan gained recognition for documenting the private homes of artists and high profile designers for magazines worldwide including The World of Interiors, Casa Vogue Italy and The Wall Street Journal.

Ivan travels extensively, he has sailed twice across the Atlantic ocean and is a passionate surfer. He also paints and sculpts.

Beyond Chic gives a photographer's private view of the  homes, and collections, capturing the personalities of many iconic names in fashion and design.

This is truly a must have book for your collection and holiday wish list.

I LOVE that striped couch! I am not one for a lot of color in my house but I'll take that couch any time!

Thank you so much Karena dear, for coming this morning! Yes, I sold the tutu, it's been delivered, and I just need to hear back from the buyer who has been out of town so she has not seen it yet! I hope she likes it.

Enjoy your day after the big feast; I hope you had a lovely one! Anita
