The Vintage Modern Home

Renowned interiors writer Katherine Sorrell’s new book The Vintage Modern Home published by Merrell has just hit the shops. The lovely book shows loads of real life homes that mix antiques, junk shop finds and treasured heirlooms in a contemporary way. Included in the book, are a few lovely houses shot by Alun Callender that I styled. There are images of the sophisticated and calm Stockholm home of Lisbeth Johnson-Toivenen who has used lots of Bemz covers to update the Ikea furniture she has in her home. Textile artist Jane Foster has crammed her Brighton studio with amazing vintage fabrics that she has been collecting for years and fashion designer Ann Louise Roswald’s cosy Irish retreat is also featured, showing hand painted flowers that float across the bathroom wall, painted by Ann Louise whenever she has a spare moment. These are just the few shoots that I was involved with but there are many other very inspiring homes to see!
