I am very proud and excited to share some early news about our forthcoming book, CURATE, commissioned by Octopus Books. A creative collaboration between me and Australian stylist Lynda Gardener, with imagery by Australian photographer Marnie Hawson. Having wanted to create and develop a book for some time, it has been so hard 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.

The book will be published in June 2021 – but is AVAILABLE NOW FOR PRE ORDER via bookshops and Amazon. We would be so grateful if you could help us share the love for CURATE #curatethebook and can’t wait to show you more as the months roll on. We hope you will love this beautiful book as much as we do. A huge thank you to our publisher, Alison Starling, for championing the idea and the fabulous team at Octopus Books. 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.

"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.
 

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, Ali Heath (journalist and stylist) and Lynda Gardener (stylist and boutique rental property owner), 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. PRE ORDER NOW
