Welcome to the world of Fine Little Day. Take a peek into the fascinating life of Elisabeth Dunker. This is a woman of many talents: blogger, writer, stylist, designer, photographer and artist. This, her first book, is filled to the brim with inspiring images of everything that she takes joy in. We meet her in the studio, where she presents her workplace and sanctuary, before she introduces us to one of her greatest loves - collecting! With colourful baskets, crochet potholders, vintage embroidery patterns, Scandinavian china and retro novels just as a start... Next a tour of Elisabeth's own eclectic home. Bursting with colour and pattern, her Gothenburg apartment is an enviable mix of handmade blankets, vintage finds, bold printed wallpaper and fabrics, smart storage and classic Scandinavian furniture. She also gives us plenty of ideas for recreating the look, with quick and easy projects to try at home. Press flowers, re-use textiles in a patchwork, make pearl baskets, decorate wooden spoons or print a sweatshirt... Enjoy a trip out of the city as we are shown around Elisabeth's cabin in the woods, with atmospheric pictures of the beautiful Swedish countryside and yet more decorating ideas, this time with a more rustic feel. With home tours of Elisabeth's creative friends and partners we also meet Japanese artist Mogu Takahashi, Swedish illustrator Henning Trollback and hear about her succesful collaboration with Swedish homewares brand House of Rym, to name a few. This inspiring book is full of pictures, fun and heart.

The powerful aesthetic and philosophical framework that modernism ushered in during the early part of the 20th century revolutionized the built world, transformed our living spaces and lifestyles, and fundamentally changed the way we think about design. As they experimented with new forms, materials and techniques, modernist designers rejected historical precedents to prioritize function over history and tradition. This ambitious survey brings together all facets and all scales of design in a comprehensive volume that presents the vast breadth of both towering and lesserknown figures, revealing unexpected connections and new insights. Through sections on furniture, lighting, glass, ceramics, textiles, industrial and product design, graphic design and posters, architecture and interiors, and through profiles of nearly a hundred influential creators, including iconic figures, such as Bruno Mathsson, Charlotte Perriand and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, as well as architects Alvar Aalto, Le Corbusier, Eliel Saarinen and Walter Gropius, the book's scope is unprecedented. Complete with specially commissioned essays by established academics and subject specialists, and with nearly 650 illustrations, the majority in colour, this book is set to become the definitive reference for a generation, equally indispensible for the designer's studio, the library shelves or the collector's desk.

Every woman deserves a shed of her own, somewhere to retreat to for some quiet time, to create or grow, to write or paint, or just to contemplate the view. Gill Heriz has interviewed over 80 different women, and Nicolette Hallett has photographed their sheds inside and out, to collect together this unique insight into why women have sheds, and what they do in them. There are sheds for puppet-makers, sculptors, and writers, as well as farmers, furniture-makers, and woodcutters. There are sheds that can be lived in, sheds that are full to the rafters, and sheds that are simply sheds, with the usual collection of gardening tools, lawnmowers, and seed packets. Virginia Woolf once argued that, for women, writing fiction required "a room of one's own." These women have taken that premise a step further - to the end of the garden - to find their own very personal space.
In the New Bohemians, LA-based designer Justina Blakeney defines the New Bohemians as creative individuals who are boutique owners and bloggers, entrepreneurs and ex-pats, artists and urban farmers. They embrace free-spirited, no-rules lifestyles and apply that attitude to all areas of their existence, including their homes. With little distinction between work and play, the new boho home often includes an office, art gallery, showroom, photography studio, restaurant, or even a pop-up shop. The New Bohemians explores 20 homes located primarily on the East and West coasts. Exclusive interviews with the owners, as well as 12 DIY projects created by Blakeney and inspired by objects found in the homes, offer insight into achieving this aesthetic. In addition, each home is accompanied by an Adopt-an-Idea section that offers general decor, styling and shopping tips for easy duplication in your own home.

Colour is powerful - it can change our moods or raise our spirits. It can be positively life-enhancing, yet so many of us struggle with choosing the right shades for our home, instead falling back on a safe but unadventurous palette of bland neutrals. In this, his third book, celebrated interior stylist Hans Blomquist reveals his lifelong passion for colour and the way in which it can affect our emotions. Colour can soothe, enchant or excite. And as Hans demonstrates, it has the ability to render rooms cool and calming, dynamic and stimulating or moody and intriguing. As ever, Hans draws his inspiration from the treasures of the natural world, exploring shades from the dazzling optic white of newly fallen snow to the fiery crimson heart of a newly unfurled poppy and the inky canopy of the midnight sky. Divided into five sections - Dark, Pale, Soft, Natural and Bright - In the Mood for Colour will make you see colour in a completely different light.
