Description

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 delightful faded colours and patterns are used to great effect to create a mood of living that evokes 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 living areas of the home, from summer living rooms splashed with soft florals, to family kitchens overflowing with mismatched glass, crockery and cushions through dreamy rose-pink bedrooms, the book also includes romantic hideaways and retreats; entertaining in the country garden, a converted train and even 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.
