A far cry from the calm simplicity of Scandinavian interiors or bare-room minimalism, now there is a bold alternative: the motto is “more is more” and ‘individuality’ the key word. From highly-decorated interiors that are jam-packed with fabulous objects, to cool and cultivated apartments that are wonderfully unkempt, design writer Claire Bingham takes a tour around the world’s most exciting, free-spirited abodes where the interiors dazzle and half-measures aren’t allowed. Filled with prints, patterns, and curios, these homes will undoubtedly inspire readers to unleash their creativity. Celebrating the ornate, wild, and whimsical, this beautifully-illustrated book includes loads of great decorating advice and ideas to steal. In contrast to the life-changing magic of tidying, for these creative home owners messy is good. Bye, bye minimal. Say hello to houses that are full of life. CLAIRE BINGHAM is an interiors journalist who writes about architecture, design, and style for several publications worldwide.
