Overview

One person's trash, as the saying goes, is another person's 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 what's 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.

Most books I've found using salvaged pieces and thrift store finds tend to be a feminine, romantic 'shabby chic' look. This book provides more urban, gender-neautral homes with really impressive second-hand finds. Not flowery and frilly, just cool (enviable) furniture and art put together in practical, inspiring ways.

This is a nice book to read if you want to decorate your house cheaply and not spend a lot of money. Emily Chalmers has some great tips to decorate on a budget!
