What your home needs now

e1bb6782d113423a052e7f5dd469f76dI have something of an enduring love affair with interiors books – particularly bright, beautiful, big coffee table books. They just make me happy: providing escapism (how will I decorate that house by the sea?) and an endless source of inspiration. This, this and this are my reigning favourites, but there are three new books jostling for space on the table.

Decorate with Flowers by Holly Becker & Leslie Shewring

Holly Becker writes the wonderful Decor8 – an endless source of inspiration, ideas and a feast for the eyes. She has impeccable taste. Her blog is beautiful – as is this book. The photography is exquisite, the ideas do-able (although perhaps in not quite such style…) and just having the book lying around will make your home a prettier place.

Bright Bazaar: Embracing Colour For Make-You-Smile Style by Will Taylor

Will Taylor’s blog Bright Bazaar is a slice of joy. Here is a man who knows how to embrace life and colour. His book is a delight: imagine a super stylish friend taking your arm, tucking it into his and telling you that it’ll all be  alright, that there is Life After White; that you, too, can have a home which shines with cosiness and vivid splashes of colour guaranteed to lift your heart. I think I might love him.52a3445851f3ac70201420d2b487e229 60ec82d8a47d0fca5fa9aa906bcc0487 4eabea2fcd342633d39181271b7b853b 4efe40474ce7c3b0daec085c29127c3f
