modern vintage style…






Emily Chalmers is one of my favorite UK-based stylists of all time. I've been a huge fan of her vintage aesthetic since I started this blog back in 2005 so I'm thrilled to share some images from her new book, Modern Vintage Style. Emily does an amazing job of mixing color, print, and old with new…so fun and inspiring! — Joy

  1. Lovely, lovely Joy! Will have to add Emily’s new book to my summer reading list. I love see the creatives of international artists. Thanks for sharing such colorful posts!

  2. Love it and this is exactly what I need. I’m trying to completely redo my apartment in a style like this but it’s so difficult, I just don’t know where to start! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Love her aesthetic! I noticed Emily Chalmers in the March issue of Elle Decoration (UK)in “Acquired Taste” an article about collecting. It’s on shelves now in the U.S.

  4. I can’t quite recall exactly…but didn’t she also write the book “Flea Market Style” (one of my favorite design books ever, the interiors are amazing)
    The bedding in the last photo is so lovely!

  5. I just spotted this on Amazon the other day and was contemplating buying it. These images are really convincing! Thanks for sharing, Joy.

  6. I love this retro/mod mix of items. The bold colors compliment each other, and the bathroom is adorable with the bright turquoise floor tile mixed with the subway accent wall. Great pieces!
