If you love vintage style, here are two new books by the same author to indulge your passion.
Interior stylist and blogger, Selina Lake, updates Bazaar Style: Decorating with market and vintage finds. She promotes a rich and layered look that “is the antidote to interiors magazines listing must-have products and the latest colours”. Her message is to take the odd things you already own, mix them up with curious new finds and arrange all of it lovingly.
Of course, it helps if you have a stylist’s eye for artful arrangement. Lake shares the tips and tricks that work for her and encourages experimentation.
In Pretty pastel style: decorating interiors with pastel shades author Lake shows how vintage furnishings are enhanced by gentle pastels. The palette is extremely kind to the worn and patinated finishes that are the hallmark of used furniture. In particular, she reveals a passion for pink. Fresh coats of pretty colour breathe new life into old things. Like Bazaar Style, rooms are layered with collections and rich in detail.
