"Flea Market Style" gives you all the information and advice you need to furnish and decorate your home with "found" objects instead of new items bought in stores. Emily Chalmers and Ali Hanan explain how to find fresh and unexpected uses of second-hand pieces and antiques, and reveal how to mix old and new with flair and panache. The first part of the book, Flea Market Finds, looks at household goods, from fabrics and furniture to china, kitchenware, glass and lighting, and describes how to find special objects and indentify them on the basis of their quality, character, resillience, colour, and texture. The authors advocate a subtle mixing of styles, patterns, and colours, and emphasize the beauty of objects that have seen a bit of life. They explain how to locate bargain copies of modern classics--or the real things--and how to mix flea-market or thrift-store finds with high-end basics. The second part of the book, Putting It All Together, shows how to incorporate the style in every room--from the spaces where you cook, eat, sleep, or relax to bathing spaces and work spaces. The book ends with an extensive directory of suppliers. -Add a large dose of originality to your home--at low cost. -Lively text illustrated with Debi Treloar's inspirational photographs.

Many people treat floors as an afterthought when decorating or simply settle for what's already there, but floors actually have a great influence on a room and can even have the power to create the room's overall feeling. By appealing to the senses--the warmth of carpet, the scent of wood, the coolness of tile, the nuances of color and pattern--floors impart much to any space. Floor Magic explains in detail how to select and maintain flooring that best suits your room and your style. Whether your preferences run to stone, ceramics, mosaic, wood, carpet, sheet flooring, or even to more unusual floor materials such as concrete, metal, or glass, this thorough guide "covers" it all.
