  • Fearless Living

    edited by Jean-Philippe Demeyer, Frank Ver Elst & Jean-Paul Dewever

    An extremely gorgeous book by the Belgian decorating partnership. The cover fabric, gold woven with extraordinary eyes – owlish, imaginary, Ancient Egyptian, Nepali stupa eyes – has been designed by Jean-Philippe Demayer, the Belgian interior designer and antique dealer, and Pablo Piatti. Beautifully made from a technical point of view too, the book has immaculately edge-printed pages and opens completely flat without stressing the spine. The contents showcase his company’s decorating style: lavish, eclectic, colourful, comfortable and, in JPD’s own words, “anti-serious”. Jubilant indeed.

  • Wallpapers at Temple Newsam: 1635 to the Present

    Anthony Wells-Cole & Barabara Walker

    Stunning, large format illustrated catalogue of the wallpapers at Temple Newsam, one of the few significant collections in this country. Though many rooms were damaged or stripped of their papers, an enormous amount of conservation work has been achieved over several decades. Not least, a new company – the now famous Zoffany & Co.- was created to make meticulous reproductions of some of the wallpapers based on fragments. The wall coverings at Temple Newsam date from about 1700 to the present day, including half a century of rather unsympathetic redecoration from the 1930’s on. Most of the historic Temple Newsam wallpapers have been found since 1979 during structural repair works and during restoration of the house between 1980 and 2009.
