In this timeless and beautiful book, renowned architectural and interior designer, writer, shop-keeper and blogger Ben Pentreath presents a fresh and insightful overview of the classic English style. Visiting 12 very different homes, Ben explores and appraises the unique spirit of the English House - at once restrained and simple yet overflowing with a generosity of touch and a richness of colour and texture. The book is divided into three sections: London, Country, and Country House, and the interiors featured range from a 1930s pied-a-terre in London's historic St James to designer Veere Grenney's pocket-sized Palladian Temple folly in Suffolk and Wardington, a 16th-century stone manor house in North Oxfordshire. Ben's own homes, in central London and West Dorset, are also included. These homes vary greatly in architecture, size, shape and age, but they all have in common a peculiarly English style - richly-layered rooms that deftly intertwine colour and pattern and a mix of old and new furniture to create timeless and comfortable places to live.

When we describe a home as being 'full of character', we mean that it's individual or exceptional in some way. Character comes from a variety of sources, some from the property itself, and others from the people who live there, while the act of bringing character into a home is a layering process, one that starts with the bones of the building and finishes with the decor - the human element. In this new book, interiors expert Sally Coulthard explains just what it takes to turn an uninspiring space into a personality-packed home, whether it's a cottage, an apartment or a modern family house. Each chapter focuses on a particular element - for example, the importance of family and loved ones, and making an interior feel like a social space - and explains why this element matters and how to bring it into your home. Inspirational features, in the form of 'Keys to Character' boxes, offer tips on incorporating individuality into even the most unpromising of spaces, from making the most of period details and mixing old and new furnishings to introducing artwork and displaying photographs.

Small homes continue to be a best-selling topic for a number of reasons including smaller family sizes, smaller available building lots, and the desire to use fewer natural resources. But the biggest factor may be simple economics. Many people found themselves in houses much larger than they needed with mortgages they couldn t afford and then the value of those homes tanked. Those hard lessons have led to a reluctance to return to the old ways of big homes and even bigger mortgages. But just because a home is smaller doesn t mean it can t serve all the purposes a larger home did-it just takes careful planning and some smart strategies which we ll provide in "Cabins & Cottages and Other Small Spaces."

In this collection from "Fine Homebuilding" magazine, the authors look at houses both new and remodeled, urban and rural, traditional and modern, and even a few of the truly quirky. The houses exude as much style as homes many times their square footage and all are as big as they need to be to fit the lifestyles and aspirations of the people who live in them.Included will also be a section of sheds, studios, and other small structures demonstrating interesting uses of small spaces.

Harriet Anstruther is a leading interior designer whose work has featured in the "New York Times T Magazine" amongst many others. This, Harriet Anstruther's first book, showcases her projects and inspirations and provides an insight into her fundamental interest in the psychology of interior design. Through an examination of our most fundamental needs, like shelter, warmth, light, dark, establishing roots and a sense of romanticism, Harriet Anstruther reveals the essential truths at the core of interior design. Her ability to mix classical and modern, old and new, traditional and quirky is shown through a series of images, which display the broad range of her inspirations. Her interest in, and knowledge of classical and contemporary art begins to merge seamlessly together with her interiors. Linking these seemingly disparate influences together, Harriet shows how the way we design and decorate our homes reveals our innermost desires and fears.

More is More - Memphis, Maximalism and New Wave Design (English, German, Hardcover): Claire Bingham More is More - Memphis, Maximalism and New Wave Design (English, German, Hardcover)

Pump up the postmodernism! Curious ceramic objects, wildly patterned fabrics, and anthropomorphic lamps: Instantly recognizable and never, ever boring, Memphis is one of the most important design movements of the 20th century. Founded by Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass, the Memphis Group put forward a visionary new approach to design, that rebelled against the rules of functionalism, defining the '80s with its radical combinations of shapes, materials, and patterns. Serving up kooky design that's eclectic yet tightly curated, the Memphis look is exuberant, outrageous, and entertaining. Who doesn't want a bit of that? Spanning the worlds of interiors, furniture, fashion, and graphics, this new design book explores how the rule-breaking Memphis aesthetic continues to shape the modern creative scene. It started with Millennial Pink. Now the sweet shop colors, terrazzo floors, and curved cartoon shapes have been given a black outline and made graphic and cool. In More is More, author and design journalist Claire Bingham curates iconic Memphis designs and interiors alongside contemporary projects steeped in the effervescent Memphis mood. Step inside stunning, postmodernism-loving homes, studios, and hotels, capturing the Memphis spirit with their hello-there hues, vive la difference mindset, and flamboyant creativity-all hopefully, in the teeth of good taste. And along the way, hear from fashion-forward creatives embracing the Memphis look, as well as from Memphis Group founding members Peter Shire and George Sowden who talk about Memphis's beginnings, its legacy today and how the '80s vibe has impacted their life and work. For both the leaders and followers of the New Wave, Memphis is more than a style. It's an attitude. Claire Bingham revisits the period's free-thinking mind-set and whisks us away on a crazy and colorful journey: in exciting essays, interviews, and stories about home decor, artists and designers from around the world share how Memphis continues to inspire and enrich their work.

Inspired by nature, these beautiful interiors show how you can bring the natural world into your home whether you live in the country or the city. Relaxed rustic interiors are about embracing the pared-back lifestyle of living in the country, taking nature as the main point of inspiration. Use colours, textures and details to create a home in which to unwind - a retreat from the rest of the world. Niki Brantmark explores various takes on this simple, informal style. The graphical look is striking, reminiscent of exposed landscapes: think whitewashed ceilings, rugged stone surfaces and striking black features, softened by cosy soft furnishings and fresh plants and flowers. Savanna style introduces warmer hues, featuring painted wood and reds, oranges and browns in textiles, furniture and collectibles. Nordic interiors take in the best of the Scandinavian landscape - clean white backdrops against sleek designs - while those inspired by forest and mountain streams are filled with rich, deep greens and blues, combined with traditional patterns and features, such as log burners, wood panelling and woven rugs. The stunning photography for this book takes in locations across Scandinavia and the United States, and all evoke an ideal, rural life, adapted to modern living.

'I've been astonished by the number of people who went out and bought the first book, which really set out to explain our founding principles,' says Soho House founder Nick Jones. 'Since that was published, we've built Soho Farmhouse on 100 acres of Oxfordshire countryside, transformed a former belt factory in Chicago, reimagined a 140-year-old palazzo in Istanbul, restored the shell of a listed Georgian building in London's Soho and launched our own collection of homeware, called Soho Home.'
