If flat-pack furniture or expensive designer pieces aren't your thing, and you'd rather make your own cushion cover than buy it, then Homespun Style is for you! The Homespun look is about supporting artists and craftspeople, hunting down one-of-a-kind gems made by people with talent and passion. Fans of Homespun Style are no stranger to a flea market, online auction or second-hand store either, always on the lookout for unusual furniture and quirky accessories. Interiors stylist Selina Lake and writer Joanna Simmons show how this homey, crafty look has been given a modern twist with cheerful colours, tactile fabrics and bold combinations. The book begins with the Ingredients of the look, from the basics of modern craft today to how to make colour and pattern work. It focuses on ingenious ways to recycle and reuse, from transforming furniture with a lick of paint to finding new uses for everyday items.  Product Information: • ISBN: 9781849759267 • Author: Selina Lake • Publisher: Peters & Small • Format: Hardback • Pages: 160 • Dimensions: 21.6 x 25.4 x 2cm

Think Marie Antoinette in jeans and a cowboy hat – that is Rachel Ashwell's prairie style. Rachel Ashwell Couture Prairie takes her signature pastels, ruffles and whimsical prettiness right to the heart of cowboy country. This is a journey in pictures and words, following Rachel through the fields of a little town called Round Top, home to one of the largest, most eclectic and vibrant antiques and flea markets in the world, and then back to Rachel’s bed-and-breakfast in Texas. Here you will see how her style adapts to corrugated metal sheeting and weathered timbers and how it brings new life to elegant period mansions. Chapter by chapter, the book leads you through Rachel’s little houses on the prairie, from the Ranger’s Lounge where hearty breakfasts are served, to the Pearl Barn, scene of wedding parties and celebrations.
