Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
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, vintage furniture, lace and embroidery, dainty glassware and decorative china all feature, and while you will find ornate mirrors and antique French armchairs, less is very often more. Romantic Style can be restrained, with just a couple of pieces taking centre stage against a neutral backdrop. This makes it 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 and favorite colors. 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 colors, 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. Romantic Style isn't a look dictated by passing trends or the latest styles or materials. At its heart lies a desire to create elegant and peaceful interiors that function well, but also uplift and comfort us. Using a mix of contemporary, antique, and flea-market finds, Romantic Style gives any home an serene and gently feminine feel.
