I've never read a book on interior design or a coffee-table book end-to-end, until I picked up this one. It's a splendid read that covers a niche topic in a country with very private lives.

The book presents a beautiful compilation of really varied Iranian houses with excellent photography. I'd love to make every photo Hamed has captured as my wallpaper :)

It gives a fascinating glimpse of the indoor lives of people in Iran and their love for very intricate design.

All in all, a great read for thos

What a beautiful book! The photography is stunning and a great insight into how fascinating daily life is in Iran. I loved every page of the book and it gave me so many simple ideas for decorating my apartment.

It's also the perfect coffee table book and have had many friends pick it up with interest when they visit. Would highly recommend to anyone with a interest with interiors, Iran or beautiful photography.
