I was very excited when I received a copy of the new WONDER WALLS book by Sarah Bagner, better known as Supermarket Sarah. Sarah is a very creative person and I've always been a fan of her displays.
After graduating from art college, Sarah moved into styling and sold her vintage founds in Portobello Market until she launched Supermarket Sarah where she basically created unique, striking displays for various people & brands online. I think the concept is genius!
Since then, her famous displays have spread into public spaces like galleries, bars and she even had a pop-up store at Selfridges and did some installations for Donna Wilson, Tom Dixon etc.
WONDER WALLS is about embrace everything we own and learn how put it on display and there is some great examples for all of us who love vintage, collecting, fixing, displaying.
At some point in my life, I was starting a collection as soon as I had 4 items from the same series (I still have a massive Egg collection at my mum's and key rings and stamps and small metal boxes...). Do you know what I'm talking about? :-))
There is some pretty wacky interiors in the book such as the home of the Godfather of Japanese Horror comics, Kazuo Umezu and in contrast some more peaceful interiors like the home of fashion designer Asa Stenerhag (photo 4) which draws inspiration from nature, both in her art and her fashion line - very inspiring...
The good news is that I have teamed up with CICO BOOKS to offer 3 readers the chance to win a copy of this fabulous week.
