9780224101134: Style Council: Inspirational Interiors in Ex-Council Homes

With a foreword by Wayne Hemingway MBE and an introduction by Catherine Croft, director of the Twentieth Century Society, Style Council brings together an inspirational and eclectic selection of interiors from a generation of homeowners who are redefining the status of local-authority architecture. From covetable apartments in hip Brutalist high-rises to rural cottages with roses around the door, Style Council peeks behind the curtains of the often unappreciated former council home, into the lives of the creative and resourceful people who live there. The homes featured are unique, yet bound by an upcycling ethos, an innate sense of style and the triumph of dash over cash. Style Council is an essential sourcebook and a goody-bag of ideas for anyone wanting to do up their home - ex-council or not - in style. The book features 15 homes across the UK, with full-colour interior photography by Sarah Cuttle.
