When I went to Art School, I was encouraged to keep a sketchbook. I used it to collect colours, pieces ripped from magazines, and pattern making. I still do. You can use this Work Book in the same way. Plan the colour palette of a room, work out a piece of furniture, draw little sketches, use the pockets to collect ribbons, fabric pieces and cuttings.£16.95
In this book, I really pushed the boat out and did 50 (yes, FIFTY!) pieces of furniture. It includes before and after pics with step-by-step instructions for mainly painted furniture projects, with projects for walls and floors. The furniture was on the whole old pieces, but I did take a few new pieces and also some metal lamp bases and a cement garden pot. £14.99Brilliant photography by Christopher Drake, who also did the photography on Creating the French Look.
This is French style in a way you haven't seen before. The French look is simple but the influences are many. Greys, whites and linens with toile de Jouy is the most well known look but we also have chic and quirky Parisian influence as well as the sunny and bright look from the south. In this book I use my experience as an interior designer to combine the use of paint colour and fabrics to create the french look with 25 easy to follow step by steps.£12.99 Paperback Photography by Christopher Drake
