If you love elegant furniture and soft colours, then you'll adore Romantic Style. This isn't a look dictated by trends or the latest styles or materials – it has a timeless quality. Using a mixture of pieces from shops, antiques emporiums and flea markets, Romantic Style gives any room a self-assured, calm and gently feminine feel.
In this signed edition I show you beautifully decorated real homes. Warm whites and creams, vintage furniture, lace and embroidery, glassware and decorative china all feature, and while you will find ornate mirrors and antique French armchairs, less is very often more. The book begins by exploring Romantic Inspirations – Vintage, Romantic, Simple Romantic, Elegant Romantic and Modern Romantic – four very different facets of the Romantic look. From here, it outlines the key ingredients of any romantic scheme, with advice about colours, flowers and fabrics, collectables and lighting; where to find them and how to style them. In the second half of the book, take a room-by-room tour of some exquisite Romantic Style homes, with detailed explanations of how to recreate and develop each scheme under your own roof.
