Product description

We'd all like a limitless budget for interior decoration, but few of us enjoy that luxury. We tend to fill our homes with a range of unrelated furnishings acquired over a number of years, and hope that somehow everything will work together. Tackling the tricky - and common - problem of combining furnishings of different styles and from various sources and periods, The Vintage/Modern Home demonstrates how to make the most of what you have in an achievable yet stylish way. Whether they are prized antiques, second-hand discoveries or high-street pieces, this indispensable book describes how to bring together old and new, inexpensive and precious with both subtlety and flair. Exploring examples of successful 'vintage/modern' looks in real homes, interiors expert Katherine Sorrell offers a wealth of creative solutions and practical tips, from using colour and texture to unify a scheme, to choosing the right accessories to make the maximum impact.
