In the beautiful book Lucinda Ganderton explores the many ways in which you can use antique fabrics, collectibles, and flea-market finds to decorate every part of your home, from bedrooms to outdoor spaces. Contemporary vintage is an eclectic style that's easy to live with - and it doesn't have to cost a fortune. It means taking the best from past eras and mixing it with the finest of the new in a way that suits your own personality. This book is a treasure trove for collectors, designers, and anyone who loves the patina of old bric-a-brac, quirky kitchenalia, antique furnishings, and the unique quality of repeatedly laundered linen. It guides you through each living space, highlighting the design details and key elements that create the vintage look, and suggesting ways in which you can adapt them for your own home. Spread through the book are 12 step-by-step projects created by leading textile and interior designers. They include a simple but glamorous pillow studded with diamante jewels for a bedroom, an exquistely detailed Dorothy bag for the bathroom, and a stylish letter rack for the study. All of them use readily available materials and can be made by anyone with a basic knowledge of craft techniques and needlework. Whether you live in an elegant townhouse, a country cottage, or a loft apartment, you will find a wealth of ideas to inspire you in this lavishly illustrated book. Includes 12 projects with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions.
