HBL Book of the Week: Creative Walls

Wednesday, 24 August 2011

Selfridges' home buyer Geraldine James decided to write Creative Walls: How to display and enjoy your treasured collections (Cico Books, 2011) because "a lot of people are quite daunted by that blank canvas before them" when they begin to decorate their home.

Through seven chapters, 224 pages and hundreds of colour photographs (mostly taken specifically for this book), James explains how to adorn, personalise, and make the best of the walls in your home. Ideas include chalkboard displays, wall-mounted lizards and ethereal painted silhouettes - an eclectic but inspiring mix.

HBL loves: the great ideas and inspiration to be found - whether you're reading as a retailer, buyer, stylist, designer, or are planning to decorate your own home soon.
