This September sees the launch of three beautiful interiors books guaranteed to inspire
Evoke is Nina’s first interior design and architecture coffee table book
Nina Magon thanks her travel filled childhood for the distinctly global approach to her practice. The Canadian-born interior designer was exposed to the world’s cultural capitals at a young age with frequent visits to India a particular influence. Her first book showcases the cosmopolitan glamour that’s become her signature style – she mixes high-gloss modernism and old-world grandeur with panache. This is an aspirational tome featuring the arty and glamourous spaces that have made her a favourite amongst her jet-set clientele.

A practical guide from the king of colour
Former fashion designer Matthew Williamson is on a one-man mission to banish the beige. His first interiors book is a kaleidoscope of colour, taking in his personal journey with bold pattern and print, his passion for travel, and his eye-catching interior design projects around the world. We’ll also get a glimpse of his own homes in Deia (Mallorca), and London – both of which are naturally pigment-rich and playful in design. This is a book that dares you to spin the colour wheel and embrace the bright side.

Sarah Andrews’ new book is a stunning exploration of the core principles of her work
THE POETRY OF SPACES
Stylist Sarah Andrews started her career as a student of spatial sciences before turning her hand to interiors. In this insightful book, she introduces her five central tenets of design: light, life, instrument, material, and sense – and shares examples of these core principles put to best use in swoon-worthy homes. Inviting us to consider what we really want when we decorate – as opposed to what we might think we want, there’s not just inspiration on every page but revelation, too.
£35, hardback, published 14 September, Hardie Grant (hardiegrant.com/uk)
