Description

In modern rooms, a distressed chair or a vintage mirror adds a perfect finishing touch. And in traditional decorating schemes, fleamarket chic is a key part of the mix: faded textiles, weathered furniture, mismatched china and the occasional flamboyant lamp or work of art are all part of the charm. Of course, Fleamarket Chic is about saving you money, along with recycling, upcycling and repurposing. But it’s also about a sense of history and place, about individuality, and creating a home that reflects your life and personality.

Every piece in a Fleamarket Chic interior has a story: the colourful jug you found at a car boot fair, the vintage telephone you reclaimed when a favourite aunt finally bought a modern handset, the little chair you found in a village junk shop or the old dustbins that have been converted into fashionable zinc planters. In Fleamarket Chic, we’ll show you how to spot the clever find in a pile of junk, where to look and how to negotiate, how to smarten up (and when not to smarten up) second-hand items and how to re-discover and re-use things you or your family already have.

• Features specially commissioned photographs of homes decorated in a range of styles, from new Victoriana to mid-century modern and eighties revival
• Includes practical advice on how to restore – from repairing cracked china to painting floorboards and patching worn fabric
