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.

New Feast | Middle Eastern Vegetarian

Based on the freshest ingredients and cooked from the heart, Greg and Lucy Malouf’s recipes are designed for sharing and enjoying in company. Their approach to vegetarian food comes from their love of traditional Middle Eastern flavour combinations and the importance of colour and texture.
The recipes are new interpretations of Middle Eastern Food, inspired by the spirit of generosity and sharing that characterises the region.

Goats And Sheep: A Portrait Farm
A selection of goats and sheep portraits in a profile, a sideward glance, or direct gaze.
When American photographer Kevin Horan moved from city to country, he found among his animal companions goats and sheep whose chorus of sounds suggested they were not just herd animals, but perhaps individuals as well.
Experienced in portraiture, Horan decided to photograph them in his studio, as though they were privileged clients.
The resulting images ask us to notice the variety, dignity, and personalities of these lowliest of creatures, who speak to us through the camera in a profile, a sideward glance, or direct gaze.
With different coats, faces, and expressions, they are funny, fascinating, intelligent, curious, engaging "others" who command our undivided attention and respect.
They remind us that we too are fellow creatures - and the camera isn't always on us.
Goats and Sheep. A Portrait Farm Hardback edition by Kevin Horan
