An artist's record of the homes of 89 leading creatives from interior designers to ceramicists, antiques dealers, florists and chefs. SJ Axelby brings new life to interior portraiture, capturing in paint the favourite rooms of 89 leading creatives from interior designers to ceramicists and antiques dealers (and florists and chefs). A sumptuously illustrated record of a home or special project, each interior portrait is accompanied by a charming and quirky interview with the owner, in which we discover invaluable nuggets of design advice, cocktail choice, life hacks and so much more - all illustrated in watercolour by SJ. There is a long tradition of painting rooms to provide a record of grand homes, giving a glimpse into the life and times of previous generations. Today there is a resurgence of interest in our living spaces, but there is no book in the tradition of illustrated room portraiture to inspire you. SJ Axelby's Interior Portraits will take you into multiple unique and colourful homes, seen through the artist's eye. Creating an authentic and characterful scheme is much like the composition of a painting: the shape, form, contrast, colour, pattern and texture all need to work in harmony. This pictorial guide includes not only Sarah-Jane's original watercolours but scrapbook pages annotated with design wisdom from each room's owners, which will enthuse and empower the reader to try new ideas in their own homes. It's a creative who's who of the international design world featuring mouth-watering compositions bursting with colour and pattern and displaying the true joy of a home that reflects its owner's personality. This book is a beautiful object with coloured edges, hand-painted endpapers and a ribbon. It's intended as a scrapbook to dip into and discover something new every time you open it. With a foreword by Kit Kemp of Firmdale Hotels. Just a few of the creatives featured: Alexandra Tolstoy Alice Stori Liechtenstein Anna Spiro Ashley Hicks Ben Pentreath & Charlie McCormick Cath Kidston Padgham Erica Davies Flora Soames Henry Holland Kit Kemp Lucinda Chambers Lulu Lytle Luke Edward Hall & Duncan Campbell Matilda Goad Penny Morrison Robert Kime Skye McAlpine Sophie Conran

Recensioner i media

'I love Sarah-Jane's charming interiors paintings, she has an eye for the quirky and depicts the real homes of interesting people so well.' - Sophie Conran 'I feel very lucky to have my rooms captured by the enchanting hand of SJ Axelby. The pictures are exquisite and completely capture the essence of the rooms and the book is just wonderful!' - Cath Kidston Padgham 'SJ Axelby's illustrations really bring interiors to life. The spaces we design aren't static but full of energy and her work tells that story with beautiful colour and style.' - Martin Brudnizki 'SJ's watercolours are for me pure escapism. They transport you into another dimension, literally into other rooms that through her touch feel so cosy and dreamy. She creates atmosphere with her brush and paint and they are all a visual feast for the eyes' -Martina Mondadori 'Some Covid lockdown projects seem to have crystallised over time into treasured bits of contemporary culture. The best ones are generous of spirit: Grayson's Art Club, PE with Joe, and - for interiors fans - the Instagram account @sjaexelby.' -House & Garden
