Living in Istanbul with her family, she has hosted many friends from around the world in her magical city. Her passion for art, design, and photography, combined with her love of Istanbul, are the inspiration behind this book.
İrem Kınay has collaborated on several books with Assouline, including The Grand Bazaar Istanbul, The Light of Istanbul, and Ottoman Chic.
