Everyone knows that London is one of the most stylish cities in the world and New London Style by Chloe Grimshaw invites you to explore some of the most interesting homes in the capital. Showcasing the houses of young creatives in a number of London's most fashionable postcodes, you'll soon see that each area has its own style.
Filled with British eccentricities, the book features 28 entirely different homes including a converted church in Camberwell, which utilizes original features and grand architecture to create a practical and working space. And, in contrast, a stylish and contemporary home in Hampstead, which is both minimalist and modern. You can tell that every detail has been carefully considered.
A wonderful resource for inspiration, this book offers a behind the scene look at how creative people in the capital live.
You can pick up a copy of the book from Thames & Hudson now.
