Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"As both supporting players and stars, flea market finds are given pride of place in this sophisticated, handsomely illustrated primer by the savvy stylist and writing team Bauwens and Campbell (Thrifty Chic). This hunting and foraging how-to features collections of china, jewelry, kitchenalia, frames, mirrors, fabrics and furniture arranged in innovative interiors. Consistent messaging to reuse, repurpose, recycle, and repaint is reinforced throughout its six informative chapters. Mixing, not matching, is extolled and family heirlooms mingle with IKEA. Clever tricks of the design trade are plied with confidence and skill as a home's floorboards are painted with a tile motif from the Alhambra. Even a leather sofa is painted red: 'if you haven't paid much for them in the first place, then you have much less to lose.' Investment tips are shared on vintage and modern collectibles and there is sound buyer-beware advice on Internet purchases. Scouring salvage yards is also recommended and reclaimed oak wood, which 'cost virtually nothing,' outfits a modern kitchen. A useful list of international flea markets and resources is also included. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
