Supermarket Sarah: the book

There are some excellent interiors books coming out this autumn. I have a stash of my favourites in a pile in my office, and will share them over the next week or so. And first up, just a little preview of the awesome and inspiring title from Supermarket Sarah, aka stylist and online shopping entrepreneur Sarah Bagner.  I am slightly obsessed with this book right now. LOVE it.

The preview is little – for now – because I interviewed Sarah last week for my column in the Independent on Sunday, and when that is published – in a few weeks – I'll post a longer version up here, along with accompanying images. Meanwhile...

The book is called 'Wonder Walls: a guide to displaying your stuff' (Cico books, £19.99), in reference to Sarah's innovative online shop, where she displays a curated wall of wares, where customers can click on the item on the wall they want to buy. She collaborates on the walls with all sorts of interesting artists and makers – meaning it is much more than just a shop window.

And the book features heaps of interesting and unusual ways to arrange the things you collect – as illustrated by Sarah's own home (below) and also by a host of creatives with fascinating homes, from Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway (who've done something very clever with an old boat) to Bjorn Springfeldt, former director of the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm, who has a pair of giant dogs tied to a chair in his excellently odd sitting room.

Sarah is absolutely passionate about stuff, homes, collecting, arranging – and how all these things make you feel in a space. I loved talking to her and look forward to being able to share her thoughts here shortly. I hope you enjoy this teaser until then...
