Featuring thirty years of acclaimed interiors, paired with thoughtful advice and packaged with a real cloth case and mixed paper stocks, A Point of View is a rich album of Grenney s decorating work, from London townhouses to Long Island estates, with multiple images per page. Organized by room, these chapters feature Grenney s room-by-room decorating philosophy for entrances, living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens, and explore thematic topics such as Englishness and composition and balance. Grenney also shares his own story, from his early years on the 70s London design scene to starting his own firm, from his first flat in London to his renovation of David Hicks former house, the Temple, to his new holiday house in Tangier. There is also a chapter on the iconic designers who have inspired him. Whether it s a country house or an urbane apartment, Grenney s world is one of settled calm and welcoming comfort, where there are always generous fireplaces to sit in front of, billiard rooms and stone-flagged passages, and utility rooms where boots and coats are stored; grandeur and modesty side by side. This book is a must for Anglophiles and design lovers.
In this beautifully illustrated and designed book Tim Neve explores the many facets of coastal interior style and aims to both inspire readers and provide practical advice on how to capture this versatile aesthetic in our own homes. Each chapter represents a different interpretation of coastal style, from 'Beachcomber' (inspiration and decoration directly from nature), to 'Endless Summer' (capturing the zing and sizzle of childhood beach holidays), through to 'Nautical (Done Nice)' (maritime-inspired decor that is not kitsch) and 'Bohemian' (rich textures and patterns; time-worn combined with luxe). Interwoven throughout are mood boards, colour palettes, and stylist's tips and insider secrets to help you replicate the coastal feel in your own home.

In this sumptuous book, there are twenty-six gorgeous designs to choose from, with ideas and inspiration for many more, all with clear, step-by-step photographs and no-fuss, easy-to-follow instructions. Debbie's designs have a fresh, contemporary appeal, and you will be amazed at how easy they are to make. And you don't have to spend a fortune either. You can achieve a designer look at a fraction of the price you'd pay in the shops, and with her firm belief in recycling, Debbie has incorporated children's old clothes, grown-out-of jeans, pretty dress fabric, unused table-cloths or even last year's bedding into many of her designs.

A few years ago, he realised that owning so much stuff was weighing him down - so he started to get rid of it. In this hit Japanese bestseller, Sasaki explores the philosophy behind minimalism and offers a set of straightforward rules - discard it if you haven't used it in a year; be a borrower; find your uniform; keep photos of the things you love - that can help all of us lead simpler, happier, more fulfilled lives.

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.
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.

Opening up an apartment's floor plan is a desirable home improvement, one that resolves the lack of space and promotes a more casual, family-friendly lifestyle. Open plans seem to have become the "default" layout in both newly-designed and refurbished apartments. With fewer walls, open floor plans feel larger, allow for more natural lighting and promote a flexible use of space, adapting to the users' changing needs and living patterns. Beginning with an overview of the existing conditions and a wish list of changes, this book allows architects, interior designers and homeowners to draw on their own experiences and focus on the challenges faced during remodelling processes, e.g. building regulations, structural upgrading, pipework changes and the inability to fully satisfy the owners' requirements due to an inadequate budget.
There is an enormous pleasure in having a place where you can get away from it all, a small intimate space where you can live out your fantasies or simply indulge a passion. This could be a boat moored on an urban waterway or a wilderness shack miles from anywhere, lost among nature. The book is divided into two main sections, with a wealth of case studies showing a fantastic selection of individual homes from home. Huts and Hideways includes low-impact buildings, often constructed to blend with their surroundings, made of materials sympathetic to their environment. They include cabins made from wood, metal and stone or carved from the landscape itself, to treehouses perched in leafy heights. The second section Homes to Go covers mobile or moveable accommodation, providing temporary shelter in various locations, from vintage shepherd's huts and gleaming airtstream trailors to bell tents and tipis and sleek and compact boats.
