Style your modern vintage home: A guide to buying, restoring and styling from 1920s to 1990s by Kate Beavis


It is not out for some time, but we've spotted Style your modern vintage home: A guide to buying, restoring and styling from 1920s to 1990s by Kate Beavis on pre-order, so we thought it worth mentioning now.

According to the write-up, the book offers practical tips for buying, styling and restoring your vintage home, no matter what the decade (as long as it fits between the '20s and the '90s). In fact, each chapter covers a decade, with sub-sections for the main rooms in the house, including, living room, bedroom, kitchen, study, hall and even the garden, showing the must-have items from for those rooms in each period.

There are also practical styling tips, restoration and cleaning tips, social history and a list of recommended vintage traders in both the UK and US, plus further reading recommendations and of course, plenty of lifestyle photography over the 160 pages.

It is available to buy from 30th August 2013, but you can get a discounted pre-order in now, with Amazon selling it for £12.59.
