So, if you like an eclectic look and are looking for inspiration on how to create this look for yourself, you'll be very happy with this book!
I borrowed this book from the library but I would love it as a gift. Simply beautiful photography by Simon Brown.
I only wish the book had more content both in text and photography, but more in text. Additional practical projects would have been a bonus. I loved the lampshade made out of buttons!
This sylish book validated that I am right on track with how I decorate my home and beach retreat entirely with secondhand and salvage finds. It is inspirational but more importantly practical and stylish.
A lovely delightful book to curl up on the sofa, enjoy and cuppa and visualise your next thrifty project or secondhand find.
the authors use old, distressed furniture, modern inexpensive furniture, objects from nature made into groupings, door knobs, necklaces, coverlets, cushions, lampshades, etc., etc., to pull it all together.
i think this book should be required reading at interior design programs in colleges.
