Julia Bird's Cornish farmhouse is beautifully curated with found objects from the natural world and was a dream to photograph. We shot this way back in 2009 but it remains one of my favorite house stories. Have a look at Molesworth Bird for stunning hand-pressed seaweed prints.
It's out - the new fabulously colourful book from Rockett St George all about, you guessed it, COLOUR! When I was shooting this it really did make me want to rush home and paint everything beautiful colours. Published by Ryland Peters and Small.

What's a party without a well-stocked (not to mention super-stylish) bar? Drinks trolleys are making a comeback, with an upsurge in those of us taking pride in entertaining at home. Originally the epitome of domestic style and taste in the 50s and 60s, retro TV series like Mad Men have left people aching for the glamour of a bygone era, and something unusual for the home. And mobile furniture on the whole is proving popular too: if you’re not a fan of the retro style, you might also be taken by the adaptability of some styles of cart as a vital bit of extra storage in a small living space.Gaze upon luxurious marble and smoked glass carts that hark back to the Art Deco era and the golden age of cocktails; edgy tubular metal trolleys that scream 80s utility style; chic Scandinavian stained wood for pared-back parties; mid-century walnut-veneer and brass straight out of Don Draper's office and even folding 1960s aluminium tea-lady trolleys can make quite the style statement. With shelves to store bottles and glassware and a top the ideal height for mixing drinks, each style of cart or trolley lends itself to a carefully curated display of stock. Choose your craft spirits, glassware, shakers, stirrers and other cocktail kit from the wide range now on offer and create not just a practical serving station but a super-stylish addition to any interior.
Delighted to have photographed this for Jane & Lucy of Rockett St George - it truly was an inspiring & colourful ride. Available from the 8th of October. Published by Ryland,Peters & Small.
In Extraordinary Interiors In Colour, self-confessed colour addicts Jane Rockett and Lucy St George follow on from their best-selling first book by tackling the topic of choosing colour for the home.
Such is their passion for colour that Jane and Lucy launched the Rockett St George paint range in August 2018 sophisticated, earthy shades that work perfectly together. This new book allows them to explore the world of colour and reveal their inspirations – travel, hotels and restaurants, Instagram, the natural world and vintage design. Starting at the beginning, Jane and Lucy investigate colour theory before plunging into the history of colour and how it affects our emotions. Next, they take a look at the natural world and explore what colour means in different cultures around the globe. They then tackle the million-dollar question – which colours should you choose? A final chapter explores inventive ways to decorate with colour, from bold blocking to brave use of contrasting hues. Each chapter is interspersed with a real-life home that exemplifies the Rockett St George style. If you want maximum impact when updating an interior, there’s no better way to achieve it than with bold, clever and creative use of colour.
