It was with bated breath that I awaited the release of Selina Lake's newest book, Pretty Pastel Style. Given the title, I doubt this will come as much of a surprise to you. My love of Selina's work dates back many years, as I share her love of pretty colors, floral patterns and vintage china. Selina is a well-known, UK-based stylist who has an incredible eye for color and pattern. While I have adored all three of Selina's previous books, I must say that Pretty Pastel Style is my new favorite. What a stunning, stunning book! The gorgeous, candy-colored photographs (by the very talented Catherine Gratwicke) are completely drool-worthy!
The book features many beautiful homes from all over the world - and clearly demonstrates how anyone can incorporate pretty pastels into their home decor, regardless of their personal style (whether it be modern and sophisticated or romantic and vintage).
Pretty Pastel Style covers many facets of home decor - living spaces, color palettes, furniture, etc...
Selina also includes sections on adorable children's rooms, pretty outdoor spaces, and wonderful craft and work spaces.
Congratulations, Selina! You have done it again - what a truly fabulous book!
