They go on to discuss finding inspiration, analysing a space, choosing paint colors and wallpapers, arranging and styling furniture, finding the right lighting, showing off treasures, and making style statements that will stop others in their tracks. Illustrated with real-life homes, Extraordinary Interiors helps the reader to navigate the sea of choices out there when it comes to decorating, all with a dash of humor and a light-hearted approach that makes interior decorating fun.
Both passionate about interiors and design, friends Lucy St George and Jane Rockett came up with the idea for Rockett St George while on vacation together. Drawing on Jane’s experience in marketing and PR and Lucy’s background in retail, their aim was to source and sell quirky, glamorous, and unusual products that stand out from the crowd. Now, ten years on, Rockett St George's collections are a firm favourite of the press and interior designers as well as a loyal and ever-expanding customer base. Jane and Lucy spend much of their time seeking new inspiration and discovering new artists, designers, and products. In recent years, they have launched pop-up collections within two prestigious London department stores–the Fourth Floor at the iconic Liberty of London and Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge.
