"They have the unique ability to see the potential of abandoned or unloved objects and give them exciting new life," says British design icon Terence Conran. In this lovley book, they uncover the potential of abandoned bits and pieces, giving them a new lease of life and purpose. --Irish Independent

Anyone who has made the pilgrimage to Baileys home store in Herefordshire will know that Mark and Sally Bailey have a knack of being able to spot creative potential in unwanted furniture and objects. Their new book Recycled Home charts the secrets of their success and illustrates how anyone can transform abandoned bits and pieces into attractive, functional items for the home. Recycled Home celebrates reusing and recycling to produce a stylish and eco-friendly look - this is 'make do mend' at its best.' --BBC Homes & Antiques

Format: Hardcover
Mark and Sally Bailey champion the detail and cherish the past, they see the potential in under-appreciated objects and recycle and re-purpose them with good design in mind. They describe their style as 'undecoration', rather than spending time and effort repairing and repainting, they revel in the imperfections which tell the real history of the object.

If you are tired of the over slick clone interiors clogging up the pages of lifestyle magazines then this book represents a refreshing antidote. It is beautifully photographed and arranged and has a coeherent philosophy which extends beyond the endless pursuit of novelty which marks much of contemporary design. Highly entertaining and visually engaging, whilst at the same time challenging the conventional wisdom in many areas of interior design.
