Few kinds of fruit taste as naturally fresh and sweet as wild berries - and afford so many health benefits! This book is a feast for berry lovers, whether they enjoy growing them in their garden or eating them in salads, cakes, and other succulent recipes. The author shares his experience and knowledge about growing, collecting, and preserving berries, their history and the positive influence berries may have on our health. More than 30 species of culinary berries and berrylike fruits are presented in details, with pictures and gardening tips (protecting berries from birds; how to water berries). More than 70 original recipes with berries, described step-by-step and beautifully illustrated, accompany these profiles: from jams, juices and coulis to turkey roulade with redcurrants, mojito with raspberries and fresh mint, or cranberry bread, to name but a few of these savory treats.

Learn to mix patterns and collectibles with confidence Step inside inspiring, eclectic, and maximalist homes Decorating tips, tricks, and ideas to try from style maverick   A far cry from the calm simplicity of Scandinavian interiors or bare-room minimalism, now there is a bold alternative: the motto is “more is more” and ‘individuality’ the key word. From highly-decorated interiors that are jam-packed with fabulous objects, to cool and cultivated apartments that are wonderfully unkempt, design writer Claire Bingham takes a tour around the world’s most exciting, free-spirited abodes where the interiors dazzle and half-measures aren’t allowed. Filled with prints, patterns, and curios, these homes will undoubtedly inspire readers to unleash their creativity. Celebrating the ornate, wild, and whimsical, this beautifully-illustrated book includes loads of great decorating advice and ideas to steal. In contrast to the life-changing magic of tidying, for these creative home owners messy is good. Bye, bye minimal. Say hello to houses that are full of life.

Adding. Extending. Transforming. Upgrade breathes new life into forgotten architecture. Past structures are consciously preserved and revamped, expanded and altered, to create something exciting and enticing. Upgrade explores architectural and design concepts that seek to enhance and repurpose our surroundings from slight changes to complete renovations. Extensions upon a rooftop. Factories turned into relaxing retreats. Wood additions contrasting with antique brick exteriors. Through engaging anecdotes and inspiriting images, Upgrade provides vibrant exemplars and enthusiasm for revamping existing spaces. Repurposing the unused: be it an empty chapel that becomes an inviting writer s nook or a rotten barn converted into a cozy living space for a small family. The projects illustrate the possibility of adding a touch of the new to the old: farmhouses adorned with modern glass additions or churches whose traditional lines now frame an office. What are ruins to some become another's architectural playground

The raw charm of rustic farmhouses, the inviting ease of country homes: New Romance presents romantic interiors inspired by modernity. Soft palettes, natural materials, and corresponding accessories create an atmosphere that produces both warmth and comfort. From country house to chalet, New Romance highlights the charm and grace of interiors. Soft classic tones and unfinished woods provide the look and feel of dreamy antiquity. Mudrooms and breezeways bring the bright airiness of rustic outdoor spaces within the walls of beautiful homes and residences. The classic lines and traditional textures nestled within a palette of pale grays and rose tones add to the visual storyline: soft and sophisticated, nostalgic and contemporary.

The loft, which is essentially an urban construction, is an ideal way of converting one’s own home to a unique space that reflects and extends the personality of those who dwell there. The intention of this book is to demonstrate that not only is it possible, but also that often these compact solutions can stand on their own in comparison with the enormous lofts of London or Manhattan. And even though most of them are small, all of them demonstrate how it is possible to convert what could be a small apartment into a spacious loft. This is achieved by using great care in the design.

There is no other European capital where your home is (literally) as dear a possession as it is in London, a place where your postal code can be a powerful calling card. Anyone who has ever strolled through the city’s various neighborhoods, passed its modern skyscrapers, and entered into one of the many Georgian or Victorian buildings, has probably experienced a great curiosity, if not envy, about residing in this genteel and historical, yet thoroughly modern metropolis. Examples of breathtaking design abound in Living in Style London, as readers will see how London interior designers and architects create residences perfectly tailored to the people who live there, while making optimal use of the available space. Photographer Andreas von Einsiedel and author Karin Graabaek Helledie, both residents of London, escort us on a trip through the imposing residential landscape of this storied British city, a place as diverse and varied as its homeowners. Renovated industry lofts, carefully restored row houses with light-flooded bay windows, or glass oases with spectacular views of the Thames are presented with informative accompanying texts, showing off the most impressively beautiful homes found in the English capital. Born in Denmark, KARIN GRAABAEK HELLEDIE developed her sense for good design and furnishings in the cradle! For more than twenty years, the journalist and book author (Living in Style Scandinavia, teNeues), who lives in London, has been writing about trends, interior design, and travel for international publications like Danish newspaper, Børsen, and interior magazine, RUM. As an homage to her adopted home, she also wrote an intimate city guide called, London My Love!

Cool, creative, and not afraid to buck convention, Amsterdam makes the hearts of architecture and design lovers beat a little faster. You’ll find furniture that is refreshingly different, yet still functional; hotels where creative minds feel at home; restaurants that are a joy for both the eye and the palate; and museums and concept stores around every corner. Good design is in the genes of the capital city of the Netherlands, visible almost everywhere you look—in part, thanks to pioneers like Marcel Wanders, Piet Boon, and the Droog Design Collective. So it’s no surprise that MENDO (“the coolest bookstore for visual beauty”) chose to make its home in Amsterdam. We worked with interior design insiders to bring you Living in Style Amsterdam, the latest volume in the series of the same name, and share the dare-to-be-different Dutch design mentality. Selected private apartments, carefully restored 17th-century canal houses, and extravagant high-design hotels and penthouses all opened their doors to us. And what lies behind them? Innovative living spaces and furnishing concepts freed from transitory trends and the talented visionaries who created them. Meet internationally-recognized icons and discover talented newcomers to the Dutch design and architecture scene like Joyce Urbanus, Dax Roll, and James van der Velde. Living in Style Amsterdam is a timelessly beautiful photo book that will provide a wide range of ideas for every design lover and whet your appetite for your next trip to this inspiring city!

Home of Lagerfeld to Lanvin, Paris extends its style influence well beyond Fashion Week. By the time the renowned furniture trade show Maison et Objet opens its doors, the French fashion capital reveals itself to be a barometer of taste and aesthetics and a magnet for the who’s who of the interior design world. Caroline Sarkozy is one of the insiders who knows precisely how to lend apartments, houses, and lofts that “je ne sais quoi” factor. Sarkozy, who lives and works in Paris, has tremendous expertise and a unique, elegant style that is perfectly at home in luxurious interiors around the world. She grew up in Asia, the Middle East, and the USA, and together with Belgian photographer Jean-François Jaussaud, she whisks us into the personal living spaces of the most beautiful arrondissements of Paris in the second edition of Living in Style Paris. From timeless, understated interiors and ornate, yet refined Art Deco apartments to spectacular dream oases at the city’s edge: captured in opulent pictures and carefully curated, this book provides an intimate look at the work of design greats such as Frédéric Méchiche and Elliott Barnes, and the exclusive hideaways in the metropolis on the Seine that are normally hidden away from prying eyes.
