Turkish Bath...

Bosphorus blue tiles at this tradionation turkish bath. Trend inspiration for our May Turkish Delight shoot.

This stunning collection of engravings offers some of the earliest interior views of the sultan’s palaces as well as a very intimate portrait of Ottoman society. Melling’s view offer a sweeping scale of Constantinople and its rivers and seas. Melling’s keen eye for architectural beauty is evident throughout, my favourite being his detail in the Fontaine de Tophane
