Flea Market Style
Authors: Emily Chalmers, with words by Ali Hanan
Publisher: Ryland Peters & Small
Price : £16.99

We can’t resist looking around a flea market, car-boot sale or charity shop in the hope of finding some hidden treasure, or a unique piece to upcycle and add style to a room.
Whether it’s an old mirror in need of a spruce up, silk scarves which can be turned into cushions or old tins to create an eclectic display, there’s always something that can tug at the purse strings.
Split into two halves, the first part of this book focuses on the useful things you’re likely to come across in chapters focusing on furniture, ceramics and glass, lighting and kitchenware. Part two of the book enters the homes of flea market stylists and reveals how they have upcycled and put their collections together in room-centred chapters covering relaxing, sleeping, cooking, bathing and work spaces.
First published in 2005, this revised edition has been updated with today’s interior style in mind. As the authors say, ‘beautiful things never go out of style’ and this book encourages you to champion the imperfections and marks left by previous owners, such a coffee-cup ring on a side table, or dent in a cupboard door and to embrace them as endearing features.
