A couple of rooms in our house have been featured in a new book on vintage style, and I couldn’t be more excited!
Kate found our home quite by accident: back in February my hairdresser came to the house to perm my hair. As soon as she came in she loved it. She mentioned that her friend Kate was writing a book and was looking for 1920s home to feature and within a week Kate and her photographer were here, photographing the front living room and our bedroom.
So, without further ado, allow me to show you round some of my home! Here’s one side of our living room:
The book is packed full of practical hints and tips about how to style your home. It is structured by decade, from the 1920s to the 1990s; our house is in the 1920s/30s chapter. I love that this photo of Alex asleep at the top of the Empire State Building gets featured!
And here’s the other side of the bedroom. Kate has included quotes from each of the house owners discussing their inspiration, research and practical details as to how they’ve decorated, furnished and styled their homes.
And finally, I’m very proud that my quilt is featured. It’s not the quilt that is meant for this room – I’m currently working on another one from a 1930s quilt pattern, but that’s another story for another day!
