simple home

the last week has sort of felt a little like the calm
before the storm for us, even though we have still
been pretty busy & working hard -
it's just that any minute now it's going to get hectic,
really hectic.

the 3 months lead up to xmas is always busy for us,
making work for galleries, exhibitions & shows,
fitting in commissions, delivering work,
sourcing materials, designing mail outs,
applying for summer shows (in winter!) .......
....... the list goes on ......

busy busy busy
and it's getting dark so early now

but we did manage to sit down and have a look through
our copy of Simple Home,
the new book by Mark & Sally Bailey

the book is full of beautiful images by Debi Treloar,
perfectly calming & serene, just what we need right now.
there are some lovely pictures of Parma Lilac, the stunning
house and showroom of Jamie Jackson
(we haven't been there yet, but would love to).

Simple Home is published by Ryland Peters and Small
and you can click here for the book details and an interview
with Mark & Sally Bailey.
and have a peek inside the book here.

  1. i love each and every one of these images. so serene and thoughtful! i really liked the Bailey's other books, and Debi Treloar hits it out of the park with her photos every time. looking forward to this new one.

  2. we just got the new book the other day - there are some lovely images in there. Hope you enjoy it josephine.

  3. I have long admired the Baileys and really hope to visit their new shop next time I'm in England. Lovely photos.

  4. These images are quite soothing to view (especially the one with the two chairs in it)! I didn't know they had a new book out!!
