It seems strange to be beginning the year by telling you about something that actually happened back in 2015 but for one reason or another I didn’t get round to sharing the exciting news that interior stylist Selina Lake chose my home to be featured in a book she published last Spring, Botanical Style. It does kind of fit with the start of a new year as the book is full of gorgeous images, photographed by Rachel Whiting, of very inspiring homes overflowing with plants, flowers and botanical accessories and textiles and I always think there is nothing better than a house plant to breath a bit of life into a stale room at this time of year.
Here are a couple of the photographs of my home that are featured in the book but you can also find images of my sitting room, home office, dining area and hallway if you buy the book…
Behind the scenes
I took a couple of snaps on the day that Selina and Rachel spent here of their props and set-ups. It was so wonderful to watch them at work and it felt such an honour for them to be styling and photographing my home!
With Rachel Whiting’s brilliant images as well as all the tips and ideas for adding more green to your home this is one of Selina’s best books in my opinion (and not just because my home is in it!). Botanical Style by Selina Lake, published by Ryland Peters & Small, photography by Rachel Whiting ©Ryland Peters & Small.
You can buy the book directly through my blog, if you would like to. It would make a great coffee table book as well as a lovely present for a plant or interiors lover.
This is the perfect time of year to add more layers of green to your home to help freshen it up after all the festivities of the last month.
