I am very proud and excited to share some early news about our forthcoming book CURATE commissioned by Octopus Books. A creative collaboration between myself and Australian stylist Lynda Gardener, with imagery by Marnie Hawson. Having wanted to create a book for some time, it has been so hard for us all to keep quiet about this. The summer has involved many early-morning, late-night creative planning sessions across the world – and a serious amount of fun and hard work. With everything submitted, it is great to finally be able to share the news as a team.

The book will be published in June 2021 – but is AVAILABLE NOW FOR PREORDER via bookshops and Amazon. We would be so grateful if you could help us share the love for CURATE #curatethebook

We can’t wait to show you more as the months roll on…and hope you will love this beautiful book as much as we do. A huge thank you to Alison Starling for championing our idea and the fabulous team at Octopus Books. We are also beyond grateful to the very lovely Kate Watson-Smyth, the interior force behind Mad About The House; and Martyn Thompson, revered designer, photographer and creative director, for so kindly endorsing the book. 


"This gorgeous book marries inspirational ideas with real interiors, to help you curate a home that reflects your personal story and style." Kate Watson-Smyth of Mad About The House.

"A paradise for the curious, Lynda and Ali present an interior perspective so cosy that you already feel you live there. Textural spaces cleansed in monochromatic hues - with ideas that invite your imagination to consider home and collections in a new light." Martyn Thompson, Designer, Photographer, Creative Director.

ABOUT CURATE Doyenne of the unique and decorative, Australian interior stylist and boutique hotelier, Lynda Gardener, is always on the hunt for finds to enhance her homes and decorating projects. Her ability to curate and display these personal treasures has created a trademark style that is loved internationally.

Curate, the highly anticipated book by creative duo, Lynda Gardener and journalist and stylist Ali Heath, reveals how to create a home that is truly individual. With their shared love of a monochrome aesthetic and natural imperfections, they explore the eight Elements that bring a space to life: palette, nature, textiles, lighting, a combination of old and new, storage, collections and art. Ten aspirational homes show the style in practice, including a converted warehouse, one-bedroom studio, bijoux apartment, historic cottage, country estate, new-build barn, remote shack, period townhouse and rural retreat.

With gloriously evocative photography and plenty of down-to-earth ideas, Curate will encourage the reader to embrace their individual style, dream big and create a timeless interior of their own. CLICK HERE TO PREORDER
