'The Newly Wed's Guide to Setting Up Home,' (2009) is my latest book , and out in all good bookshops now. This is a great gift for any young couple starting out in life together, with lots of good ideas on how to transform a blank space into a dream home whether you love the vintage, country, modern or ethnic style.

For 'Living with White,' (2009) photographer Mark Scott and I travelled around the world, from Santorini in Greece, to Florida's Emerald Coast and Miami, and over to Cape Town in South Africa, looking for interesting houses that use white in brilliantly contemporary ways.

'Decorating with Blue and White' (2008) shows you how to use the time-honoured combination of blue and white throughout your home, in rooms and table settings, for display and collections.

'Living with Light' (2008) was shot in Sweden and the UK, and takes Scandinavian style as a theme, especially the traditional Gustavian style.

'Shoestring Chic,' (2004) for Country Living magazine in New York, gives creative ideas for recycling, restoring and renovating lots of ways to create a chic, stylish home on a tight budget.

I worked with Cate Burren, of Angel + Blume, on 'So Simple Window Style, and 'So Simple Slipcovers,' very practical books these, with over 30 home projects in each, all with step-by-step photography. Find out how to make your own curtains and blinds, and how to cover everything from an armchair to a lampshade.
