Room after room and image after image, readers will discover how star stylist Colin King works his magic when arranging objects on coffee tables, mantels, bookshelves, bedside tables, windowsills, and more. Through a series of anecdotes and visual essays, Colin unpacks his intuitive and deeply personal process, meditating on scale, proportion, palette, texture, and more. As he shares, it s not about buying new things, but rather about dusting off old favourites and seeing them with fresh eyes looking beyond intended use to discover deeper meaning in the everyday. It s about being decisive in the moment while giving yourself permission to change your mind. And it s about trying new arrangements again and again, finding out what the moment isn t, until you find out what the moment is. There s always the element of chance. Styling, readers will discover, is a metaphor for life and a daily practice to be honed over time. The go-to stylist for many of the world s leading brands and publications, Colin King is a regular contributor to Architectural Digest, T, Ark, and Rum magazines. He collaborates regularly with West Elm, Anthropologie, Zara Home, Crate & Barrel, and Roman and Williams Guild, and has his own celebrated product lines with Beni Rugs and Menu, with more in the works.
