So I wrote another book. In between getting one child off to university, styling shoots to pay the bills, and getting the other child through a stressful exam period, I thought I’d add some more madness to my life. But you know I’d go mad without the madness 😉 It’s called Be Bold and it’s filled with, you guessed it, bold interiors.
Be Bold is for colour lovers, pattern clashers, and textile mix masters. Whether you are already bold with your interiors or you aspire to be more so, I hope it will be a welcome blast of inspiration in what can sometimes be a sea of muted neutrals. Featuring inspiring homes in London, Paris, Margate, The Netherlands and Madrid, this was a fun one to pull off in a rather short amount of time.
Be Bold: interiors for the brave of heart comes out any day, but you can pre-order here or better yet head to your local bookseller and ask them to order it. Also look out for news about a workshop I’ll be hosting with Anthropologie Europe to celebrate the launch. Check my Instagram and Facebook in mid-October for more details about that. All I can say is that we’ll make something fabulous with those primary school favourites – paper, scissors, and glue – inspired by this Parisian sitting room above.
A tight turnaround from start to finish meant a manic travel and writing schedule, and the usual panic that I wasn’t going to get it done. Combined with a bad case of writer’s block, it was a hairy ride! Luckily I got to work with the gorgeous photographer Catherine Gratwicke (Cath photographed my first book Modern Rustic) whose company on our trips was just the best.
I can’t wait to hear what you think. In the meantime go forth and Be Bold! xx
