Bazaar Style Sneak Peek

March 7, 2008

Yesterday a book arrived in the mail from publisher Ryland Peters & Small in New York that I think you may like to see… It’s called Bazaar Style or as I call it, Bohemian decor gone deliciously wild.

Bazaar Style Sneak Peek
Do you remember Selina Lake? Well she styled the rooms in this book. Photographer Debi Treloar is responsible for the beautiful photos, and FYI her work was featured today by Ez on Creature Comforts (Debi’s portfolio is jaw-dropping, great find Ez as always!). I interviewed Selina recently for decor8 and so to hold her book in my hands today is especially nice since I feel like I know the lady behind the photos making it so much more interesting and special to me.

This book is a visual feast as you can see, not a single of its 144 pages lack a fully-saturated image. Writer Joanna Simmons gives some helpful tips along with Selina on combining different elements to pull together the boho look, so it’s not just pretty but informative. Last year my favorite book was Midwest Modern, this year it may just be Bazaar Style.

You can pre-order it on Amazon for $19 (sponsored link here) or wait until April to pick yours up at the bookstore. Enjoy!

    I’m so glad that you ladies like it, it’s a great book. And you know what? I do make a small amount of money when decor8 readers buy a book I suggest, that’s why I mention in the paragraph “sponsored link”, I earn 4% on sales. So for the book you purchased at $19 I earned .76 cents! But it’s good because at the end of the month it can add up to around $30 or so which is nice because then I can buy a book or a few cd’s and it’s kind of a nice treat. Though I do have to give about 30% of that to the government in April. :(

    Holly, that’s too funny. I just sent an email out to my family of some books from Amazon I want for my bday in April. Now, I’m so gonna have to re-send with this book added to that list. This style is so, SO me. I am instantly inspired by the pictures.

    Thank you so much for the preview. If I was a book my name would be ‘Bazaar Style’. I am swooning over the images. So much talent.

    I’m happy to find the book I art directed on your blog! As the designer and one-third of the creative vision for this book along with Selina and Debi, it was a very inspiring project to work on. After all, it is the book design + layout that bring the photographs and bazaar style to life…

    I just received my copy of this book from my book club and I absolutely love it!
    My favorite so far is the photo of the patchwork wall with the two patchwork sofas.
    This book is fantastic!
    I’m so glad to FINALLY find a book that shows the styles I like!

    What a visually stunning compilation of photos! I love the room with all the bright pink accents and the big letter “N” sitting on the window sill! I’m a big fan of using color to make a visual “pop” in a room, and this book looks like it’s choc full of such visual statements!
