Kit Kemp is back with another colourful and exciting interiors book that showcases her unique approach to design.
For over 20 years, Kit Kemp has been at the forefront of the international design community, developing a signature style which mixes contemporary works of art by both well-known artists and unknowns -- all of whom paint with soul as much as skill -- with Kit's own furniture designs, antiques and junk shop finds, all set against a layered backdrop of luxurious fabrics, bespoke wallpapers and hand-finished detailing which creates instant impact. In Design Thread, Kit shares the inspiration behind her creative process: whether it's a house in the country or a city pied-a-terre, a hotel suite or beach bar, her unique eye for design shines through. Kit considers every element of her interiors in detail, each one treated as a work of art in its own right, with an emphasis on creating personal, authentic, handcrafted spaces which capture the imagination and stand the test of time.
Alongside the stunning images of room sets and detailed close-ups, from her hotels to her private residences, there will be great insight into the inspirations behind Kit's work, including her design collaborations.

Crown moldings or cabinetry? Vintage or Victorian? Orange or ocher? Successful interior design - creative, comfortable rooms with a personal touch - is built from layer upon layer of colour, texture, pattern, embellishment, and more.

Baird considers architectural details, furniture, colour, fabric, flooring, lighting, and accessories, offering equal servings of expertise, history, and recommendation. She illustrates her topics with dozens of photographs of her own work, from apartments in New York City to houses in the Hamptons and Palm Beach to a residence in Paris. Building on her three previous books, in On Interior Design Baird imparts the lessons and principles gleaned from her thirty-plus years in practice.

While all but gone today, Jamestown's furniture industry was once the second-largest producer of furniture in the United States. Manufacturing boomed from 1816, when William Breed and Royal Keyes opened their shops, to the 1920s, when Jamestown was still one of the top wood furniture producers in the country. In the nineteenth century, the thriving railroad industry allowed Jamestown's quality creations to be distributed nationwide. After the Civil War, an influx of Swedish immigrants brought their craftsmanship and skills to Jamestown, forming Morgan Manufacturing, Empire Furniture Company and many others. Then, their pieces were valued for quality and durability; today, they're coveted by collectors as beautiful antiques. Local expert Clarence Carlson uncovers the fascinating story of Jamestown furniture.

Continuing her exploration of English interiors, Ros Byam Shaw visits 14 distinctive townhouses full of charm, character and style. In Perfect English Townhouse, Ros Byam Shaw examines the timeless English style of decoration in a variety of Georgian, Victorian and contemporary townhouses. Architecturally, these tall, narrow properties present challenges. How do you make the best of a basement kitchen with a low ceiling and limited light? Or allocate space when you live on five floors? And how do you maximize any precious outdoor space? Perfect English Townhouse features case studies of such homes, not only in London but also in the provincial towns and cities of England. Some feel like little pockets of countryside surrounded by pavements, others have a more sophisticated, metropolitan allure; some are endearingly eccentric, others more classical. All the interiors featured are inspiring, and reflect the personalities of the people who inhabit them. These are the kinds of space that most of us are familiar with, and that many of us occupy. What is unusual is how cleverly and creatively these examples have been decorated and designed.
