Extraordinary Interiors

Rockett St George: Extraordinary Interiors: Show-stopping looks for unique interiors.

Jane and Lucy start at the very beginning, taking the reader by the hand and offering sound advice on making the right style choices. They go on to discuss finding inspiration, analysing a space, choosing paint colours and wallpapers, arranging and styling furniture, finding the right lighting, showing off treasures and making style statements that will stop others in their tracks. Illustrated with real-life homes, Extraordinary Interiors helps the reader to navigate the sea of choices out there when it comes to decorating, all with a dash of humour and a light-hearted approach that makes interior decorating fun.

Eat Sweat Play: How Sport Can Change Our Lives by Anna Kessel

Anna Kessel has been a sports writer for the Guardian and Observer since 2004. She has covered three Olympic Games, as well as several World Cups, Euros and World Championships, and interviewed some of the biggest stars in global sport. 

“Society has led us to believe that women and sport don’t mix. But why? What happens to the young girls who dare to climb trees and cartwheel across playgrounds? 

In her exploration of major taboos, from sex to the gender pay gap, sports journalist Anna Kessel discovers how sport and exercise should play an integral role in every sphere of our modern lives.

Covering a fascinating range of women, from Sporty Spice to mums who box and breastfeed, Eat Sweat Play reveals how women are finally reclaiming sport, and by extension their own bodies, for themselves – and how you can too.” ~ Amazon
