Vintage Home is both a practical collector' s guide - what to look out for - and a celebration of the period. It covers both serious and costly designer creations, which sell in major auction houses worldwide, and cheerful mass-produced kitsch, which you can pick up in car boot sales, charity shops, flea markets and yard sales. It looks at objects from around the world that were made for every taste and budget. Designers in the twentieth century were driven by the possibilities of mass-production and excited by the host of new materials. The period is also infused with the importance of women after the First World War and the emergence of a youth culture, and the new market for modern, fashionable goods from the 1950s onward. Where the older generation were used to ' make do and mend' , the young embraced wholeheartedly the disposable society. They replaced the old with something new and fashionable, a taste epitomised by colourful plastic furniture and paper dresses. The consequence is a fabulous array of every type of object for the collector.

Complete with demonstrative illustrations and photographs, Small Space Living offers more than 100 space-saving ideas from Roberta Sandenbergh, a.k.a the Small Space Architect. Sandenbergh will introduce you to the idea of space opportunities-untapped areas in every home that can be expanded for storage and organizational purposes. A space opportunity might be as simple as using an empty space under a stairway or above a doorway or as complicated as dividing your entire apartment for rental income. Each chapter addresses a different kind of space opportunity area, including closets, corners, walls, windows, ceilings, and floors. In these areas, you will be inspired by Sandenbergh's creative approaches to divided spaces, stacked spaces, empty spaces, mirrored spaces, and multipurpose furniture. Projects include: BATHROOM IN A CLOSET: It could save your marriage. OFFICE IN A CLOSET: Run an empire from your chair. DINING IN A CORNER: Make every meal cozy. BOOKCASE PARTITION: Gain a double function. SHOJI PARTITION: Create elegant privacy. BED OVER STORAGE: Use for kids, teens, and adults. SPIRAL STAIR POLE: Better than a ladder-more than a pole. CHAIRS ON THE WALL: Do what the Shakers do. SETTEE IN A WINDOW: Add space and glamor to a small room. DRESSING TABLE IN A WINDOW: Do your makeup with natural light. WALK-IN CLOSET UNDER STAIRWAY: Get rid of your "catch-all." SOFA INTO TABLE AND SEATS: Pop up a table for six. CABINET INTO TABLE: Pull out when guests arrive. INSTANT EAT-IN KITCHEN: Pull out a table and stools. Learn from the author's stories of her own designs for "small-by-choice" homes-for herself and for her clients-in which she tried to make the best possible use of varied living spaces. Allow Sandenbergh to help you create more space-efficient and attractive areas in your home whether you live in a studio apartment, a tiny home, or a larger home that needs more of a cozy feel.

Get it right, however, and your home will look sophisticated and modern. So how to find the perfect hue? In Shades of Grey, Kate Watson-Smyth explores the current popularity of the shade and consults experts - scientists, paint companies and interior decorators - who reveal their favourite greys as well as other tricks of the trade. She looks at the wide range of greys on offer and, via a simple process of elimination, will help you track down the shade that works perfectly for you.

`One theme that has become quite clear is that all of the characters embrace, cultivate, or are naturally inclined to take a wonderful childlike view of the world. That is evident in their homes, as well as their work' Robyn Lea Modern Day Bohemians sidesteps the world of carefully constructed interior design images and instead, dives into the liberated and nonconformist atmosphere of offbeat beauty and artistic delights. It asks the question: what does it mean to be bohemian in the modern world? Robyn Lea is an incredible storyteller - both visually and in the written form. She understands the creative spirit. In each profile she traces the journey from unusual childhoods to creative, often unorthodox, adult worlds and along the way reveals the interesting twists of fate that have allowed each person to realise their full bohemian potential in the spaces they live and work in.
Celebrate the classic art of Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts with this unique collection of twenty images, beautifully printed and ready to remove for framing. Whoever your favourite character is, you'll find them in here, along with classic moments that will make a distinctive addition to your home.
The French interior evokes a way of life to aspire to, with its good food, unhurried pace and, above all, its past for which many people feel nostalgia. Developed over hundreds of years, the French look reflects all tastes, from the cultivated grandeur of the chateau to the simplicity of rural living, and can be adapted to every home. Creating the French Look is divided into four styles: 'Chateau', 'Country', 'Provencal' and 'Parisian', and each "look" is applied to living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms plus outdoor living spaces. As well as describing each overall style, focusing on colours and fabrics, Annie Sloan emphasizes the details and accents required by each one, and, aided by 25 clearly explained step-by-step projects, shows how to achieve it. Among other things, she explains how to paint and distress furniture, and describes how to cover an armoire door with embroidered voile. Whatever interior you desire, this book will guide your choices from the grand statement of the painted armoire to the finishing touch of a little posy of lavender.
