This is an irresistible guide to combining old and new in your home with confidence and style. Katherine Sorrell shows how to add interest with unexpected or individual pieces - a portrait that was a lucky junk-shop find, pieces of 1960s glass from a market stall, a gilt-framed mirror that belonged to your grandmother. Spotting a gem at auction or a carboot sale is very satisfying, and lots of fun. Even better, you won't see it anywhere else - unlike items bought on the high street. The main part of the book, "Spaces", takes you through every room in the house, showing how to combine old and contemporary objects to create a home that is entirely original, as well as comfortable, practical and stylish.
