Modern Vintage Style is the beautiful new book by Emily Chalmers - interior stylist and owner of London-based boutique, Caravan. Emily's passion for vintage items is evident throughout the book, as is her unique and feminine style point, which is beautifully captured by photographer Debi Treloar. The book is split into two sections: Inspirations, where you'll find a host of examples of achieving a Modern Vintage Style with furniture, textiles, lighting and more. Followed by Style, which offers practical tips for translating the earlier inspirations into a liveable home. As such, Emily's relaxed approach to decoarating is easy to adpot. Real homes are shown throughout, my favourite being the aptly titled 'American French' space of Brooklyn based couple Dean Sawyer and Steve Drum, whose home effortlessly marries quirky vintage finds alongside modern pieces. If you buy the book, be sure to check out their kitchen on page 91, with it's country-meets-urban mix, it's a real treat. Have you read Modern Vintage Style? What inspired you about the book?
