  • REVEAL Interior Design as a Reflection of Who We are. Foreword by Tom Dixon Harriet Anstruther is a leading interior designer whose work has featured in the "New York Times T Magazine" amongst many others. This, Harriet Anstruther's first book, showcases her projects and inspirations and provides an insight into her fundamental interest in the psychology of interior design. Through an examination of our most fundamental needs, like shelter, warmth, light, dark, establishing roots and a sense of romanticism, Harriet Anstruther reveals the essential truths at the core of interior design. Her ability to mix classical and modern, old and new, traditional and quirky is shown through a series of images, which display the broad range of her inspirations. Her interest in, and knowledge of classical and contemporary art begins to merge seamlessly together with her interiors. Linking these seemingly disparate influences together, Harriet shows how the way we design and decorate our homes reveals our innermost desires and fears.

  • The Scottish Country House Hardcover. Published 5 Nov 2012 The Scottish Country House chronicles a remarkable group of houses and castles that have survived the vicissitudes of Scotlands turbulent history and are still in the hands of their original families. From breakfront cabinets filled with generations of monogrammed heirloom china to canopy beds keeping the chill of a Scottish winter at bay to cabbage-rose slip-covered sofas nestled under tall Gothic windows, this book takes the reader on a tour of these residences, providing an intimate look at a marvellous hotchpotch of rooms and decoration. Specially commissioned photographs by James Fennell show inviting living rooms and tousled bedrooms, print- lined hallways and well-trampled mudrooms. Telling details capture the eccentric personalities of their owners Scottish chieftains, lairds and nobles drawn from the pages of Walter Scott; charming decorative details, such as a red silk bell-pull against green floral wallpaper, a drawer full of two- hundred-year-old love letters, or the curve of a wonderfully carved antique chair. In his anecdotal text, James Knox tells the tale of the more colourful inhabitants of these homes, both past and present. The houses are not the instant creation of trendy decorators they have evolved over generations, furnished with heirlooms and cherished hand-me-downs. This is a book for lovers of Scotland, history or decoration.
