The secret to planning a deeply personal and meaningful wedding has nothing to do with budget. It's about creating a celebration that reflects a couple's core values. Translating those values is the work of Modern Wedding, an information-filled guide with hundreds of creative ideas and beautiful, inspiring photographs for readers to look at and say, "This feels like us." The book unpacks every element of a wedding--stationery, attire, seating plans, flowers and tablescapes, food and drink, gifts--with examples that will appeal to couples who care about how things are made but are not overly influenced by trends. The emphasis is on natural surroundings, seasonal flowers and food, modern dresses, minimalist ceremony structures, and naked cakes. Photographs of real weddings--"case studies" like a destination fete in Tuscany, a house party in Brooklyn, and a New Agey revel in Kauai--show how all the pieces can come together into a unique and expressive whole. Extensive practical information and resources give readers access to all the help they need for their own unique celebration.
To wear it or not to wear it, that is the question. But, maybe, not any more. This book aspires to be a sort of manual, a summary of classical male dress codes given a modern feel. It also acts as a reference point for launching brand new and innovative styles that men enact every day to improve their comfort and elegance. Today, dress codes are no longer considered a limitation to creativity and individuality; nonetheless, it is still vital to understand the rules of dressing - even if at times we decide to transgress. Through superb photography and texts written by an expert in contemporary fashion, this volume encapsulates a series of modus vivendi, experiences of some of the true protagonists of male fashion - ranging from CEOs to artists, from white collar workers to dandies and factory workers. Through these images, all men will be able to learn how these people have adapted a black tie outfit without breaking with tradition or revolutionized formal attire creating a new interpretation of the suit. They will learn how new jobs or lifestyles have become `occasions', how the routine of a "frequent flyer" affects his style eventually determining a new dress code. For some, defining a style is natural and spontaneous, while for others it represents a careful construction of one's own image. Step by step, each chapter allows readers to experience the sense and the transformations of the contemporary male dress code

A paean to the passage of time in old London domestic interiors. What is it about old pine panelling layered with flaking paint that enchants the eye and tugs at the heart? The soft shine of wooden boards, worn and gappy. Sunlight shafting through an open door out to an unevenly flagged yard where a clay pipe might turn up alongside a Thames oyster shell or a pottery shard. Blue-and-and white export ware; the molten lustre of mahogany or worn silver; the curiosity of tricorn hat boxes or a fragment of Spitalfields silk; portraits whose owners might once have lived here. Would they have believed that these houses would stand 250 years later? Time has imbued all these things with unforgettable patina not only in museums, but even more in old Georgian houses still lived in and loved, repaired, and regenerated. Like pearls, warmed to lustre by the daily caress of a hand or foot. The majority of these extraordinary dwellings began as ordinary terrace houses, built to a pattern, often in pairs or small groups. Clusters exist in the East End of London: in Spitalfields, Whitechapel, Shadwell, Mile End. They are mostly Grade II-listed, and their owners put up with the bone-curdling cold of winter howling through gaps, with mending and colour-matching, patching and piecing. Not just put up with they embrace it. And among them are some unrepentantly furnished with 20th- and 21st-century modern, finding poetic harmony across the centuries.
