Interior designer Kishani Perera knows that good design is everywhere and at every price point. Mixing modern with vintage, and retail with custom, her eclectic interiors incorporate pieces from designer showrooms and Etsy alike to create spectacularly layered, vibrant homes. In Vintage Remix, Perera’s striking interiors serve as a guided tour through the stages of design, from deciding when to skimp or splurge to adding the finishing touches and unexpected elements of whimsy. Her mix-and-match philosophy will help readers discover and express their own tastes. Perera takes the intimidation out of blending styles, proving that pairing seemingly opposing pieces can strike a balance that is classically chic.
Praise for Vintage Remix:
“In her new book Vintage Remix: The Interiors of Kishani Perera, the Los Angeles designer proves that ‘eclectic’ does not have to be code for ‘messy’ or ‘absolute disarray.’ The homes she decorates mix high-end furnishings with eBay and Etsy finds, flea market pieces, and mass-market purchases for rooms that reflect an individual's personality with warmth and often a touch of glamour.” —Los Angeles Times

A wide variety of rooms are included. The author uses layers to create the rooms' stories, but the rooms remain clean-lined and clutter-free without the cookie-cutter-perfect look.
While in LA I stopped into the author's shop and was able to meet this wonderful woman. In talking with her it's clear why we see warmth, style and grace present in her room designs. Enjoy her book and then go with confidence to your local thrift stores and antique shops to begin to create your own unique and stylish rooms.
