Bazaar Style - Paperback

I was just 25 when my 1st book Bazaar Style was published in 2008 by Ryland Peters & Small and was thrilled it became one of their Best Sellers. Bazaar Style is all about decorating your home with market finds, using items found at flea markets and Bazaars and mixing styles from different era's and cultures. It's bright and colourful and features gorgeous photography by Debi Treloar, I'm really excited that Bazaar Style has now been re published in a Paperback version due to be released in March 2013, it's available now to Pre-order
