The Stuff of Life - How to style and display your most treasured possessions

Author(s): Hilary Robertson; Hilary Roberston; Anna Williams (Photographer)


In her gorgeous new book, sought-after interiors stylist Hilary Robertson reveals a multitude of different ways to style and display the "stuff of life"--the flotsam and jetsam of possessions that we all slowly acquire. In the first chapter, How to Arrange your Stuff, Hilary identifies and illustrates four different approaches to arrangements and shows how each one can be achieved. She also considers the variety of display locations available within the home - blank walls, mantelpieces, windowsills, chests of drawers, tabletops - and suggests how to make the most of them. Next, in Stories told by Real Homes, Hilary shares inspiration from real-life interiors that fall into five different styles--Neatnik, Bohemian, Naturalist, Sculpture Vulture, and Noble Salvage. Some people are magpies--they love stuff; finding, collecting, and displaying it, while their opposite, the minimalists, are on a mission to contain it or tame it.The ideas in this book are sure to appeal to both magpies and minimalists and everyone in between.
