Jane Cumberbatch's unique approach to decoration is based on the timeless appeal of all things simple and natural. Pure Style pioneered the trend for uncluttered interiors. With its advocacy of clean outlines, crisp fabrics and natural materials, it reaches beyond the bounds of interior decoration, offering a new way of living that is resourceful and economical. With photographs by Henry Bourne, the book shows which colours, fabrics, textures, items of furniture, decorative objects and lighting are appropriate to the style - and goes on to demonstrate how to bring them together to create your own interpretation of the look.

"Focusing on all things simple and pure, echoing the current trend toward uncluttered interiors with clean outlines, crisp fabrics, and natural materials," designer Jane Cumberbatch's unique approach to interior design captured the imaginations of millions in 1996 with the release of her book Pure Style. Now, the essence of Cumberbatch's design ideas is brought to life in photographs and words in this classic wall calendar. From a simple dining room scene to a cozy blue-and-white bedroom, a gathering of lavender sprigs on antique lace to a kitchen in classic white, noted photographer Harry Bourne's pictures speak to the "aesthetic and the sensual of everyday life." Brief explanatory text noting the design elements accompanies the photos and completes this beautiful calendar.About the Author:
