my book - The shopkeeper's home
My first interiors book - The Shopkeeper's Home -was released on the 15th October 2015. Published by Jacqui Small LLP, the book looks at the interior decor of over 30 independent stores from around the world, and then visits the homes of the shopkeepers themselves.
The first part of the book gives core interior decorating advice using elements from the shopkeepers’ stores and homes. It describes inspirational furniture and lighting ideas, suggests ways to store and display everything from books to quirky collections, and offers advice on layout, walls and floors too.
In the second half I take you through my personal curation of these independent stores from across the globe. Ranging from lifestyle stores to vintage emporia, homewares to crafts shops in all kinds of retail spaces, from converted barns to repurposed gas stations as well as more conventional places with traditional shopfronts. From the avenues of the USA and the streets of the UK, to hidden corners of Europe, the book explores retail outlets and stylish interior design ideas.
