Full of creative and affordable ideas, Flea Market Style gives you all the information and inspiration that you need to create a beautiful and original home.
One person’s trash is another person’s treasure, as the saying goes. In Flea Market Style, stylist Emily Chalmers and interiors writer Ali Hanan will inspire you to discover a whole new world of preloved and vintage treasures and use them to create a unique home. The duo reveal how to track down hidden gems as well as how to combine individual pieces to forge your own distinctive style. The first section of the book, Flea Market Finds, covers the range of second-hand, salvaged and vintage objects on offer. Whether your style is retro, country, minimalist, or eclectic, you can seek out unique pieces of furniture, lighting, glassware, kitchenware, and fabrics that will appeal to you. Some flea market finds may need a little tender loving care, while others will look great just as they are, with a unique patina of age. Once you have acquired a feel for what’s out there, the second part of the book, Putting It All Together, demonstrates how to transform any interior room by room. It covers spaces to cook, eat, sleep, and relax, as well as bathrooms and home offices. The book ends with hints and tips on how to source the right piece for the right place. Flea Market Style combines lively and accessible text with beautiful, inspirational photographs by Debi Treloar, revealing how to become a true aficionado of second-hand style.
