I've recently featured an interview with fantastic interior stylist, Selina Lake on the blog that I write for interiors shop, Strawberry House Interiors, and just had to share it with my readers, too! I've known Selina for a few years now, and have always been a big admirer of her work!
Selina is the bestselling author of two wonderful books - Romantic Style and Bazaar Style.

♥ What is your favourite piece of furniture or decorative item, and what’s the story behind it?
My vintage china collection! I love buying second-hand pretty floral patterned plates & Teacups and Saucers. I have loads already but everywhere I go I always end up souring antique, charity or junk shops for more items to add to my collection. I bought some amazing gold pattered ones a few weeks ago while on a work trip in Norway. I'm getting married soon and planning to use some of my found pieces at our Wedding Reception!!
♥ What trends do you love at the moment? Do you have any tips on how our readers can create this look in their home?
I'm currently working on my 3rd book which is due to be released in Spring 2012, Homespun Style, so i'm loving the whole made by hand trend at the moment. There are so many crafters who sell their handmade homeware goods on Esty, Folksy & DaWanda, Homespun Style is all about decorating and furnishing homes with homemade items, recycled furniture and crafted details. It looks at craft style with a modern twist, I've used bold, cheerful colours and decorative details such as, Embroidered tablecloths, retro kitchenware, chunky knit, trims, ribbons, pom-pom embellishment and plenty of homegrown flowers.
♥ And finally… anything else you’re itching to tell us?
Did I mention, I'm getting married???? I'm very busy at the moment planning and arranging all the details for my Big Day. I've been keeping a Wedding Ideas Moodboard on Pinterest ... click here for the link!
