'Ali Heath has done it again. In CREATE, she expertly unpacks how to mix old and new, to design a cohesive and irresistible home that radiates personality and charm, while guiding readers to trust their instinct and to create freely and from the heart.' Holly Becker @decor8 'The ethos Ali promotes of reuse, the handmade and sustainability is something that particularly chimes with me. This is a book of the moment to encourage everyone to turn their house into a unique home, no matter your budget, building, or previous interior design skills.' Sarah Moore, @sarahmoorehome Some of the most exciting interiors around are those that combine vintage and antique finds with select contemporary pieces. In Create, interior stylist and writer Ali Heath encourages you to think imaginatively about how to bring together old and new - giving you the confidence to let go of perfection, and to express your own style, while decorating more sustainably. Following on from the success of Ali's first book Curate, Create is a visual feast divided into three engaging and informative chapters. Establishing Your Style encourages you to trust your own creativity and gives advice on how to get started. Developing Your Eye explores topics that include defining your palette; mixing antique, vintage and modern; building and displaying collections; celebrating the handcrafted; layering pattern, fabrics and texture and styling the details. Whilst Inspiring Your Journey features the homes of tastemakers whose creative paths have inspired their own unique mix of old and new at home.

How do we learn to speak the language of colours? How do we move with ease and confidence through a maze of infinite possibilities? How do we create a colourful, harmonious and beautiful home? In answering these questions, this book provides technical tools, simple rules and practical advice about how we can use colour decoratively and effectively in our own homes, bearing in mind the different variables to be taken into account, which are presented in an easy-to-read and understandable way. It explores the many facets of colour theory and the secret lives of colours, taking the reader on a kaleidoscopic journey through the amazing world of colours, their origins and their idiosyncrasies. We learn why colour grabs our attention and fascinates us to the point of seduction. We are shown how colour influences the way we perceive spaces, how to handle colour combinations, how to balance colour and light, and the relationship between people and colours throughout history. Ultimately this penetrating book on the interaction of colours and the human experience of them makes clear how adding colour to the environments in which we live can be a momentous gesture of consciousness and freedom, an act of love towards ourselves and the people we care about.

n this private collection based in Geneva, the chairs are not an assembly of objects of everyday use. They are a congregation of creatures eluding their primary purpose as seating. Like a pendulum swinging between design and art they do often permit this purpose, but metaphorically exaggerated height and disassociation transform the chairs into individuals, or sculptures exploring the uncertain boundaries of physics. The book's generous layout allows readers to immerse themselves in this cabinet of curiosities and give their imagination free rein. Nicolas Polli and Jean Vincent Simonet use their photographic essays to interpret the exhibits originating from well-known artists and designers. The texts illustrate the collection in terms of the friction between art and design, they explain the collection's significance in the life of the collector, and they discuss the general motives that lead to a passion for collecting.
