It has been a while since I last wrote about a lovely decorating book. Actually I do not seem to buy as many books as I used to. These days a book really has to be something special for me to buy it. And this one truly is a gem.
At least to lovers of pretty florals and all things English. I am, of course, talking about the "Perfect English Farmhouse" by Ros Byam Shaw. I already have her book "Perfect English Cottage" which has become a firm favourite, and which I have written about here.
Now her latest book "celebrates the characteristic style of the classic farmhouse, and shows how to turn your own home into a beautifully welcoming retreat". The book is divided into five sections; Organic Farmhouse, Traditional Farmhouse, Fresh Farmhouse, No Frills Farmhouse and Funky Farmhouse.
It probably comes as no surprise that my favourite section is the Fresh Farmhouse one, which includes lots of lovely florals and pretty rooms. But also the No Frills Farmhouse appeals to me. In fact all the different sections include most delectable, appealing farmhouses that I believe I could easily move in to.
I am thinking this book would make a lovely Christmas pressie to someone who likes this style and enjoys a pretty book. I am also thinking my Mother-in-law might just fit into this category...
