OMG, she’s only gone and done it… that’s right the fabulous Kate Watson-Smyth has put pen to paper once again and produced another fabulous book!
Hooray, hooray, hooray! This is the interiors book that we’ve been dying to get our hands on and it’s finally here! As you can probably tell by our overuse of exclamation marks, we are super excited that one of our favourite bloggers and journalists, Kate Watson-Smyth, has written a book which is dedicated to decorating your home with style. A gorgeous nude pink coffee table book featuring the Rockett St George Palm Tree Floor Light on the cover (how cool is that?!) this beautiful book will show you how to create a home that tells a story.
So, without further ado, here are our highlights of this amazing interior design book, which you can shop at Rockett St George from Thursday the 22nd of March 2018…
About Kate Watson-Smyth
A close friend of Rockett St George, Kate Watson-Smyth has been a journalist for 25 years writing for the national press including the Independent, the Financial Times, the Daily Mail, the Daily Telegraph and the Guardian. She launched her blog madaboutthehouse.com in 2012 and it has since won several awards, including the Vuelio No 1 UK Interiors blog in 2015/16 and 2016/17 and she is the authour of the book Shades of Grey (available to purchase at RSG here) …. so it goes without saying that Kate really knows her stuff!!
Mad About The House
Split into seven chapters with a bonus top 10 design hacks to finish, Kate guides you room-by-room to show you how to create a space that suits your personal style.
Filled with expert advice what we particularly love about the book is that you can pick this book up at any point in the future when you plan to decorate a new room and Kate’s sound wisdom will guide you through the decorating process, helping the reader feel more confident about making tricky decorating decisions.
With practical styling tips and incredibly handy checklists throughout the book, such as what to do about your entertainment system, how to buy a rug, how to choose the right mattress and our particular favourite… how to work colour into your decor (if you are a colour phobe when it comes to your interiors than this is a god send!), Kate has covered it all!
Something that we really love about the Mad About The House book is the down-to-earth and friendly advice that Kate gives. At no point do you feel as though you are being spoken down to or are made to feel a decorating amateur. It’s as though you are enjoying a coffee/tea with a good friend who seriously knows her stuff when it comes to interiors! A smart and informative read filled with need-to-know tips, RSG loves Kate Watson-Smyth’s new book!
A special thank you to Kate for mentioning RSG in the acknowledgements of the book! We are over the moon to be included…
“Jane Rockett and Lucy St George, whose gorgeous lamp adorns both the cover of this book and my sitting room”.
