Vintage? Modern? Home? This book title really ticked all my boxes so I was thrilled when it landed on my desk last week. Written by Katherine Sorrell it is packed with gorgeous images and practical tips. As the former Associate Editor of Homes & GardensKatherine knows her stuff and has broken the book down into chapters that focus on broad subjects such as colour, pattern and texture.
She starts the book by asking the reader to asses what they already have and to spend some time thinking about what look you can pull together from your existing possessions. A great piece of advice which we are all guilty of forgetting when rushing out to buy something new. The photos are varied and inspiring – I love this shabby chic dining room with its mix of vintage furniture and cheerful accessories.
How great is this casual arrangement of vintage signs and prints. And that fisherman’s lamp – gorgeous!
This light and airy kitchen image is a perfect example of the overall tone of the book which aims at encouraging readers to make the most of their own space and to create a cosy, comfortable home which reflects their lifestyle, without feeling like they have to live in a magazine-styled show home.
