Artist, textile designer and now home-style guru Kim Parker reveals her extraordinary personal style and design process and shows how anyone can create their own ‘interior garden.’ Parker combines her own fantastic floral patterns with funky flea market finds, fashionable antiques and starkly modern pieces to show that any style can be brightened with bold floral prints.

The book captures breathtaking shots of Kim's varied collections of dinnerware, giftware, designer rugs, bedding, fabrics, decorative pillows, stationery and wall art, amid lushly colourful interiors, as well as photographs of inspirational objects in nature. This interiors / lifestyle book is in the tradition of STC's successful An Affair with a House, this time with an urban contemporary point of view.

A wonderful sourcebook for anyone with an eye for mixing vintage and contemporary, Kim Parker Home is also a revealing window on how to make the most of your own creativity and vision.   Harry N. Abrams
