Bar Cart Style
Serve drinks at home in style and bring the party to your guests from one of 12 beautifully themed and stylishly stocked bar carts.
Bar carts are making a big comeback, with an upsurge in those of us taking pride in entertaining at home. Originally the epitome of domestic style and taste in the 50s and 60s, retro TV series like Mad Men have left people aching for the glamor of a bygone era, and something unusual for the home. And mobile furniture on the whole is proving popular too: if you’re not a fan of the retro style, you might also be taken by the adaptability of some styles of cart as a vital bit of extra storage in a small living space.
Gaze upon luxurious marble and smoked glass carts that hark back to the Art Deco era and the golden age of cocktails; edgy tubular metal trolleys that scream 80s utility style; chic Scandinavian stained wood for poolside parties; mid-century walnut-veneer and brass straight out of Don Draper's office, and even folding 1960s aluminium tea lady trolleys can make quite the statement. With shelves to store bottles and glassware and a top the height for mixing drinks, each style of cart lends itself to a carefully curated display of stock. Choose your bottles of spirits, glassware, shakers, stirrers, and other cocktail kit from the wide range now on offer and create not just a practical serving station but a super-stylish addition to any interior.

Resident Dog Volume 2
As an architecture photographer, Nicole England found that the shoots she enjoyed the most were the ones where dogs were present – nothing lightens the mood like a nonchalant pup. However imposing the architecture, some doggy hijinks can immediately bring an element of sociability and fun. With this in mind, Nicole set about setting up her Instagram, Resident Dog, and now this book, Resident Dog [Volume Two], which showcases over 25 of the world's most amazing houses, and the dogs that live there.
Photographing dogs is not always straightforward, because they don't always cooperate! The result is that these images end up with a looser, more spontaneous style. Just as every home is different, so is every dog.
The photographs showcase amazing architecture and capture the personality of the idiosyncratic personality of each canine. Take a wander around the world's most stunning homes, from Mexico City to Sydney, London, New York and LA, with the home pooch as your tour guide. Each home will feature several photographs, and an interview with the architect or homeowner.

Relaxed Coastal Style
In Relaxed Coastal Style, Sally Denning offers decoration inspiration for anyone lucky enough to live by the ocean, as well as those who only dream of it. Scientists tell us that living by the ocean makes us happier and healthier: views of blue space have a calming effect and sea air improves our ability to absorb oxygen. Being by the water brings a sense of tranquillity and relaxation and a home by the sea has never been more desirable.
The first part of the book offers up Sally’s take on coastal style, celebrating the colors and textures of the ocean. She also looks at lighting, furniture and coastal decorative accents such as maps, charts and nautical-themed accessories, shells, and driftwood. The second half of the book visits a selection of glorious coastal houses, cabins, cottages, and hideaways around the globe that are guaranteed to enchant and inspire. Wherever you live, Relaxed Coastal Style will inspire you to adopt the relaxed, informal simplicity of life by the sea.

Resident Dog | Nicole England
Just as every home is different, so is every dog.
In this stunningly photographed book of architecturally superb houses - many of them architects' own homes - we see how the presence of a dog brings warmth and life to the most dramatic spaces. From mid-century raw brick to a penthouse apartment, gracious Edwardian to Scandinavian modern, from beach house to country retreat, there is always room for a dog or two.
Seemingly oblivious to designer furniture, heritage considerations or serious design aesthetics, dogs can make themselves at home anywhere. In fact, the rooms in this book are all the more appealing because of their resident dog.

Rattan | A World of Elegance and Charm
Rattan evokes the glamour and exoticism of the Riviera, grand yachts, private orangeries, and tropical verandas. Once popular in the prewar era – rattan was charmingly depicted in Matisse and Picasso paintings, Cecil Beaton filled his conservatories with whimsical rattan furnishings, and paparazzi snapped dazzling stars such as Gina Lollobrigida and Marilyn Monroe lounging on rattan chairs – rattan is regaining its allure. Becoming increasingly fashionable in interior design and fashion spreads, rattan's appeal is a reflection not only of its intrinsic beauty but also the renewed interest in craftsmanship and sustainable design.
The glamour of rattan is shines through in seductive images by Horst who documented the rarefied lives of the beau monde. The book also describes some of the great society figures for whom rattan held particular appeal, from Marella Agnelli to Cecil Beaton. Evocative photographs will show European royalty relaxing in their rattan filled gardens as well as portraits of Churchill and Roosevelt meeting on rattan chairs.
Today rattan is crafted in small ateliers creating exquisite, highly prized designs such as Atelier Vime in Provence and Soane Britain in Leicestershire. It is also returning on a larger commercial scale such as IKEA's recently developed rattan village in Laos where they are sponsoring the first FSC certification of a rattan forest. The rattan palm is fast growing and easy to harvest making it one of the most sustainable materials for contemporary furnishings.

Cranlana: The First 100 Years
In 1899, a 21-year-old Russian, Simcha Baevski, arrived at the Port of Melbourne in pursuit of a new identity and a new life. Renaming himself Sidney Myer, he founded a small drapery business in Bendigo, Victoria. From these beginnings Sidney accumulated significant wealth, which enabled him to buy an established retail business in Bourke Street, Melbourne, in 1911. This became The Myer Emporium, a Melbourne shopping institution whose enduring status no one could foresee.
Adopting Cranlana’s air of concealed mystery, this book guides the reader though its magnificent wrought-iron gates and into a garden and a house that breathes history – one resonating with horticultural vitality, material beauty and human enterprise – yet a place still very much a living family concern and to date not open to the public.
Breathtakingly designed and illustrated, and full of reminiscences from the people who lived and worked at 62 Clendon Road, this book is a fitting celebration of the life of Cranlana during its first 100 years.

Whether for a plantation guesthouse in South Carolina or a Dutch Colonial home on Long Island Sound, Eric J. Smith's evocative designs are the result of thoughtful planning integrated with a deep understanding of his clients' lives and lifestyles, a design ethos beautifully evident in the book.
From a Georgian home in California and a French Country home on Long Island to a Shelter Island fishing camp, Smith's work is at once an homage to tradition and an expression of the living beauties these traditions still offer.
Over the course of a storied career, and often working with prestigious interior designers – including Alexa Hampton, David Easton, and William Diamond – Smith has garnered a reputation for a kind of personal architecture that is, in each case, in sync with the homeowner, whomever he or she may be, and the place, whether it is oceanfront, on a hillside, or set beside a lake or stream.
