Description

Winner 'Best Interiors Book' - Homemaker Art & Craft Book Awards 2016

Have you ever wondered what the homes of the owners of these beautiful retail spaces might be like? Caroline Rowland visits both the stores and the homes of more than 30 of the most stylish independent lifestyle retailers to give you a peek behind the scenes.

This gorgeous stylish design book gives core interior decorating advice using elements from the shopkeepers’ stores and homes, describes inspirational furniture and lighting ideas and suggests ways to store and display everything from books to quirky collections, as well as offering advice on layout, walls and floors too. Join Caroline Rowland as she takes us through her personal curation of independent stores from across the globe, ranging from lifestyle stores to vintage emporia, homewares to crafts shops in retail spaces, 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, this sumptuous interiors book explores retail outlets and stylish interior design ideas, providing you with inspiration direct from the owners of the most stylish independent lifestyle retailers and allowing you an insight into how their retail life inspires their home and vice versa.
