Do you head to the local flea market at the crack of dawn each Sunday? Do you find yourself braking for every garage or yard sale sign in your neighborhood? Then this book is for you, or someone (similar) on your christmas gift list!
A republishing of Country Living’s Your House, Your Home (2005), SIMPLE SUSTAINABLE STYLE (2012) is a journey through the personal photo album of former Country Living contributing editor and interior designer Randy Florke. The photos, many of which have been featured in Country Living over the years, showcase his relaxed design aesthetic – simple rooms brimming with country style and flea market finds.
Divided into chapters covering each space in your home, the book acts as a reference guide to inspire your own eclectic room design with simple budget conscious tips and Florke’s do’s and don’ts for creating a comfortable but elegant country space.
As a bonus the book includes many pictorial examples along with practical tips for displaying vintage collections – a design element common in country interiors. With an eye to color and form your early morning finds will give your home a sense of history without turning it into a would-be antiques store.
