I’ve kept a close eye on Emily’s recent move back to London and the subsequent changes she’s made to her new house, in an attempt to Pink it Up and win the war on pink against her husband. So naturally, when I heard Emily was releasing a book, I was itching to have a nosey inside.
I was lucky enough to attend the very Pink book launch party at Sketch in Mayfair, where I got my hands on a copy.
For anyone who is a lover of colourful interiors, you're in for a treat.
The book is not about decorating floor to ceiling in Pink, but will give you suggestions on decorating with colour and how to introduce pink into your home.
It’s an inspiring and practical guide to decorating. It has some jaw dropping ‘pinkspiration’ and is witty and entertaining, with laugh out loud interior insights. (See the story of battling the sofa into the living room.) You'll find a room by room house tour and a great shopping directory, jam packed with independent retailers.
I hope you’ve enjoyed having a peep inside Emily’s London home, more beautiful pictures can be found in the book.
