Living Life Beautifully

$65

Timeless, classic, and ever-popular, Christina Strutt's relaxed approach to decorating has earned her fans worldwide.

Living Life Beautifully tells the story of how Christina founded legendary fabric company Cabbages & Roses and grew it into a lifestyle brand. Christina talks about her inspirations and influences, and how she works these into her products. Specially-commissioned photography allows us a peek into her London apartment, and we see behind the scenes at her family home in the Bath countryside. This 600-year-old cottage is the backdrop for constantly changing interiors-it is where Christina designs her fabrics, experiments with her new wallpapers, and gathers all her favorite antiques, inherited gems, and newly sourced vintage acquisitions.

In addition, Christina shows us a selection of other homes and lifestyles she finds truly inspirational, including those of Brigette Buchanan, of interiors company Odd Limited, and Maureen Doherty of Egg.
