Emily Chalmers—interiors stylist and owner of hip boutique Caravan—shows how using vintage items in a contemporary context can introduce humour, flair and personality to a home.
Decorating should be fun and inspiring, so there are no style diktats; no "this-must-go-with-that". Modern vintage style is all about trusting your instincts and taste and using a bit of imagination in seeking out the right items to create a perfect balance of old and new. In the first section of the book, Inspirations, Emily offers up imaginative and varied examples of furniture, lighting, textiles, decorating and collections & display. In the second section, Style, she shows you exactly how to pull the look together, applying her decorating philosophy so you can cook and eat, live, sleep and bathe perfectly in tune with Modern Vintage Style.
