In this, their latest book, Mark and Sally Bailey of destination homeware store Baileys Home & Garden turn their attention to homes that are less perfect, more personal, and which possess their very own brand of idiosyncratic, lived-in charm. Imperfect Home embraces the picturesque beauty of peeling paint, vintage fabrics, time-worn colours, handcrafted items, and obscure treasures. But it is also a place where old meets new, and where modern pieces are mixed in to bring vitality, color, and contrast to the interior.
Mark and Sally Bailey’s style has been evolving for over 25 years in their Herefordshire home and business, Baileys Home & Garden. Their backgrounds in architecture, interior design and furniture-making have lead to collaborations with the music and fashion industries, retailers and in product design. Mark and Sally have worked with Ralph Lauren, Paul Smith, Donna Karan, Liberty, Conran, Takashimaya and Habitat. Their other books for Ryland Peters & Small are Recycled Home, Simple Home and Handmade Home.
