Vintage chic : using romantic fabrics and flea market finds
Strutt, Christina
Adult Nonfiction NK2110 .S77 2011

Comments  Summary

Summary: Popular as never before, romantic country style is here to stay. Vintage Chic inspires you to create this timeless and accessible look in your own home. Exquisite textiles in faded colours and patterns are used to great effect to evoke memories of old roses, charming ancient cottages and endless summer days. Masterminded by Christina Strutt, founder of textiles firm Cabbages & Roses, her room-by-room tour reveals a myriad of ways to make the most of fresh colours, faded fabrics and flea market finds. Moving through the main areas of the home, from living rooms splashed with soft florals, to kitchens overflowing with mismatched glass, crockery and cushions and to dreamy rose-pink bedrooms, the book also includes romantic hideaways and retreats - entertaining in the country garden, a converted train and a child's secret tree-house. These are interiors in which to retreat and relax, an embodiment of comfort and charm that creates an oasis of stylish calm, whether you live in a country house or apartment block. * Vintage Chic embodies quintessential country style and reveals a way of living that is truly elegant, relaxing and beautiful. * Gorgeous photography by Edina van der Wyck. * Christina Strutt's Home-made Vintage has sold more than 30,000 copies and Guide to Natural Housekeeping has sold more than 35,000 copies.
