From the cover: One persons trash, as the saying goes, is another persons treasure. Here is a book that will inspire you to hunt down a whole new world of treasures as well as revealing how to use them to create a place you can really call home. In Flea Market Style, stylist Emily Chalmers and interiors writer Ali Hanan explain how to find what you want and how to combine individually chosen pieces to fashion your own distinctive look.
The first section of the book, Flea Market Finds, covers the range of second-hand objects available for every corner of your home. Whether your style is retro, modern, country, minimalist or downright eclectic, you can find furniture, lighting, glassware, kitchenware or fabrics that will appeal to you. Some pieces will need a little tender loving care or a facelift, but many will look good just as they are.
Once you have acquired a feel for whats on offer, turn to the second part of the book, Putting It All Together, which shows you how to transform your interior room by room. It covers the spaces where you cook, eat, sleep and relax, as well as bathing spaces and work spaces. The book ends with hints and tips on how to plan your treasure hunt so that you can source the right piece for the right place.
Flea Market Style combines lively, accessible text with beautiful, inspirational photographs by Debi Treloar illustrating a wealth of covetable looks and finds to show you how to become a true aficionado of second-hand style.
