Ryland Peters & Small,  2006. 
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. . This is a beautifully illustrated guide to creating an individual and stylish look in your home. Junk style is a modern and unique decorating style that is eclectic but selective. Pieces of furniture and accessories sourced from markets and second-hand shops are chosen for their intrinsic beauty, whether this derives from the quality of workmanship, quirky styling or the colours and textures created by the patina of age. The overall look is neither too contrived nor too precious: things can be mismatched, patched or frayed to create a 'shabby chic' effect that combines elegance and individuality. Melanie Molesworth has a keen eye for junk style and is constantly on the lookout for second-hand objects that can be given new life; her book offers both inspiration and advice on how to achieve it. 143 pages.

What Every Home Owner Needs to Know About Mold [And What To Do About It]
Vicki Lankarge,
ISBN: 0071412905
McGraw-Hill, USA, 2003. 
 Softcover Softcover. Near Fine Condition/. . Don't let mold destroy your most valuable investment. There's a black cloud looming over your house. It can rob you and your family of your priceless valuables and sentimental heirlooms. It can take complete control over your house, leaving you destitute, homeless, or, worst of all, deathly ill. That black cloud is a toxic mold that could right now be growing at rapid speed behind your baseboards. Learn how to spot toxic mold and get rid of it before it's too late with the help of "What Every Home Owner Needs to Know About Mold (and What to Do About It)".Your home is most likely your biggest investment. But once Stachybotrys mold takes over, you can kiss that investment good-bye. Award-winning reporter Vicki Lankarge sheds important light on this highly poisonous infestation-the asbestos of the new millennium-providing the latest findings about mold and how you as a homeowner can protect yourself from its predatory invasion.Filled with helpful checklists, you'll learn how to combat these microscopic invaders, including: telltale signs of mold infestation, including an earthy or musty odor, sunken areas in baseboards or trim, staining, swelling, or crumbling of plaster or sheetrock; symptoms of mold exposure, ranging in severity from nosebleeds, chronic cough, wheezing, skin and eye irritations, to vomiting, memory loss, pulmonary hemorrhaging in infants, and death; and, tips to prevent moisture and mold, including plumbing and grout repairs. It also dicusses about dealing with insurance companies: what to expect from them, what they expect from you, and what to do when a claim goes bad, and avoiding real estate nightmares: before buying a home, demand full disclosure from the sellers regarding all prior water damage ...and make sure it's in your real estate contract! Be prepared to walk away from the deal if they won't sign it. It also includes tips for home sellers: repair any damage related to water intrusion and/or mold infestation before you put your home on the market; document all repairs; and disclose everything. 134 pages.

Contemporary Country
Emily Chalmers with words by Ali Hanan,
ISBN: 184597249X
Ryland Peters & Small, London, 2006. 
 Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. . Many of us hanker after the relaxing, easy simplicity of country life, yet we aren't sure how to adapt this look to suit a modern home. That's where "Contemporary Country" comes in. It's about rekindling our love of the rustic idyll, but giving it a new twist. It's about taking the essence of country style - a way of living that is gentle, natural and grounded - and giving it a contemporary makeover. You don't have to live in the country to appreciate the lifestyle - its colours, textures and details look just as at home in urban spaces. In "Contemporary Country", Emily Chalmers and Ali Hanan begin by looking at the elements that make up the style. They explore the use of natural materials and the way in which key structural features such as beams or staircases can be exposed so that living spaces flow naturally together. They look at furniture - painted or left with a natural finish - lighting, textiles, flooring and colour. The book then examines key areas of the home, from kitchens to sleeping spaces, and shows you how the look works with the help of over 200 inspiring photographs.

Tricia Guild’s Painted Country

ISBN: 1850295557
Conran octopus, Great Britain, 1995. Reprint
 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. Reprint. Think natural, loosen up, pare down, color in, and above all, live well! These are the key words of the new country living, and no home better exemplifies this wonderful philosophy than decorator Tricia Guild's Tuscan farmhouse. A tour around this warm and wonderful home is the centerpiece in a richly photographed look at what defines the best contemporary design. The first section, "A New Attitude," pinpoints the main features of this current approach. Then, the intimate glimpse into Guild's private world, as well as four other houses, spotlights her love of natural materials, her uncluttered arrangements, her loose approach to fabric, and bold use of color--as well as the inspiration she draws from the surrounding landscape. Rooms glow with brightness; her kitchen bursts with fresh produce; inside and out, tables are laid with embroidered cloths, jugs of garden flowers, vibrant mismatched plates, and delicious local foods. Finally, "Living and Entertaining" is an exhortation to fill your world with pleasure, and to bring exuberance not only to your décor and design, but to all you do. None of the ideas is expensive, and every one is innovative, easy, and life enhancing! 192 pages. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
