Book Description

13 Feb 2014
If you love elegant furniture and soft colours, and you'd rather fill your home with flowers and candlelight than cutting-edge technology, then you'll adore Romantic Style. In this beguiling book, stylist Selina Lake and interiors writer Sara Norrman show you real homes, beautifully decorated with an eye for the elegant. Warm whites and creams, lace and embroidery, vintage furniture, dainty glassware and decorative china all feature, although less is very often more. A surprisingly easy look to reproduce, once you have a feel for the chief components of the style, you can roll it out in any room, adapting it with your own treasured pieces. The book begins by exploring Romantic Inspirations - Vintage Romantic, Simple Romantic, Elegant Romantic and Modern Romantic - four very different facets of the romantic look. Next, Romantic Styling outlines the key ingredients of any romantic scheme, with advice about colours, flowers and fabrics as well as displaying your treasures and lighting. The third section, Romantic Rooms, takes a room-by-room tour of the home, with explanations of how to recreate such a scheme yourself. Using a mix of contemporary, antique, and flea-market finds, Romantic Style gives any home an serene and gently feminine feel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant book from Selina Lake 7 Sep 2010
By Meg
Having previously purchased the brilliant "Bazaar Style" by the very talented stylist/writer Selina Lake I was excited to hear about this new publication, and it does not disappoint! Full of beautiful pictures and homes, and inspirational ideas/writing. There are many books and magazines which cover this "genre", but this is definitely a personal favourite. For someone who reads a lot of these, I was surprised by the amount of new ideas and pictorial influences I picked up in one read. Anyone with an interest in this type of interior will be very satisfied with this book. Can't wait for the next!

5.0 out of 5 stars love it 7 Sep 2010
This is a really lovely book. I have to admit to spending alot of money on these types of books, I love them and this is definately going to be in the favourite pile, along with 'Bazaar Style' by the same stylist. It is full of beautiful rooms and ideas, so much so (to my husbands horror) I want to redecorate and insist on getting up the whole family on a sunday morning to hit local car boot sales! Anyway I would definately suggest you buy this book pour a glass of something and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage styling at its most beautiful 21 Oct 2010
By Kat
I just LOVE this book, because it has everything i love about interiors. Vintage fabric, roses, repurposed furniture, eclectic mixes of old and new, framed art, white with colourful cushions....the list goes on!

I also feel the enthusiasm that Selina, Sara, and Debbie have placed into it. They really care about their subject and creating this book must have been a shared passion.

To me this always adds to the reader's enjoyment of a book. It feels fresh and brimming with new ideas and interiors that haven't been seen before.

It inspires with ideas for ways of decorating, that can be adapted to suit a smaller budget or smaller scale room. It has achieveable looks that uplift and brighten our everyday tasks.

There is a good balance between the colourful and the paired down, more neutral decor. With plenty of ideas for each room, this styling book is going to be a favourite of mine for many years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really beautiful and highly recommended 11 Dec 2011
I agree with all the other five star reviews. This is a really beautiful book full of light, airy and pretty interiors. Great use of vintage floral fabrics and lots of lovely colour. If you love Shabby Chic and the use of true vintage treasures (no "junk" style here) you won't be disappointed.

I also think books are such good value. A book like this is page after page of loveliness you can enjoy for a long time compared to magazines which cost only marginally less and you end up with all the ads.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Interiors Presented So Beautifully 3 Feb 2011
Selina Lake created such a beautiful book - her styling work combined with Debi Treloar's eye as photographer make for an incredible duo. Romantic Style is packed with beautiful, creative styling ideas and full color photographs that are light and bright. Normally, floral styles can feel heavy and dated but Selina's take is very fresh and playful. I especially liked how she breaks the Romantic Style into sections -- important and clever of her to present it this way as Romantic Style can be broken down into all sorts of looks. Can't wait to see what Selina works on next, if it's anything like Bazaar Style and Romantic Style I'm sure it will be a hit!

"Romantic style needn't be frilly, pink or frivolous", the authors tell us on page 20. Indeed, according to this book, it can be elegant, modern or simple. Read more

This is a lovely little book. It gives a lot of decorating ideas for a romantic style and even though it seems to be aimed at a 'younger' market it can be used by anyone. Read more
