Some of the most exciting interiors around are those that combine vintage and antique finds with select contemporary pieces. In Create, interior stylist and writer Ali Heath encourages you to think imaginatively about how to bring together old and new - giving you the confidence to let go of perfection, and to express your own style, while decorating more sustainably.
Following on from the success of Ali's first book Curate, Create is a visual feast divided into three engaging and informative chapters. Establishing Your Style encourages you to trust your own creativity and gives advice on how to get started. Developing Your Eye explores topics that include defining your palette; mixing antique, vintage and modern; building and displaying collections; celebrating the handcrafted; layering pattern, fabrics and texture and styling the details. Whilst Inspiring Your Journey features the homes of tastemakers whose creative paths have inspired their own unique mix of old and new at home, with case studies that range from calm, whitewashed spaces to more colourful interiors.
