Competition: Flea Market Chic

Last summer, photographer Simon Brown (also famous for his photographs of Airstream caravans) and his gorgeous wife, the stylist and interiors blogger Liz Bauwens came over to shoot my house for a book Flea Market Chic (CICO books) by Liz Bauwens and Alexandra Campbell. It's one of a beautiful series of books on interior design and style, all of which I covet. It was interesting to see an interiors shoot in action and I felt very flattered that I was chosen. We used romantically blousy blooms from my favourite florist Achillea Flowers in Mill Lane. I love the ideas in the book, and it's thrifty message is just right for now. You don't need money to have a stylish home.
Now the book is published, I'm offering my readers a chance to win a copy. All you have to do is like my facebook page and put a comment describing your favourite flea market find.  You can even upload a picture to the facebook page if you want to show us what you found!
Best comment and best find wins the book!

  3. I love Liz Bauwen's books, I have quite a few of them. Your home looks amazing in the pics - it's pretty gorgeous in real life too. Warm, comfortable and chic. Have left a pic on your facebook page of my favourite flea market find... Ax

  4. People like you really freak me out! How can one person, be so extraordinary talented.? I loooove your home! Perhaps you should think about giving step by step lessons on how to do over a home with as much obvious style as you have. Even better, just come over to Dubai and give my home a make over.


I would love to hear what you think of this post! I try to reply to every comment (if there is a delay, I am probably away from an internet connection or abroad)
