Latest Books by Elizabeth Hilliard

 

Delicious, fat, glossy books on interiors, bursting with inspiring photographs and pithy practical text, don’t appear overnight. As you might expect, months if not years of planning and writing, picture research and photography, design and editing, go into producing publications of such high standard.

Kitchen Living

Kyle Cathie 2000

Kitchen Living is a book for the way we live now. The kitchen is at the centre of the home – it’s the place where we live, eat, entertain, work, play… Ideally, it has a cooking area, an eating area (the table is the focus here), and perhaps room for a sofa or comfortable chair. Ideally, it has French windows opening onto a balcony or terrace where we sit out and eat in fine weather. We almost don’t need another living room, so happy are we in the living kitchen.

In this book I offer ideas for organising and decorating kitchens of all sizes and shapes as well as looking forward to the futuristic kitchen and celebrating today’s natural kitchen. I look at storage, at flooring, at waste disposal, at art works, at suitable fabrics and window treatments, you name it… There are also tips on laying the perfect table, planning a seating arrangement, flower and other table arrangements, caring for table linen, cutlery and glass, and even on clearing away the mess discreetly.

This book reflects the life I myself lead, but it is also a departure for me because it includes a decorating section, on getting the most from your terrace, balcony or window box (the perfect living kitchen has at least one of these). And it has a chapter devoted to food and drink – recipes which are quick and easy to prepare while being packed with flavour.

Kitchen Living has the following chapters:

§         Planning and storage

§         Decorating the kitchen

§         Tables and chairs

§         Finishing touches

§         The table

§         The terrace

§         Food and drink

Paint

Decorating with Fired Earth

This is due to be published by Pavilion in the spring of 2001

I have to admit to being something of an addict to paint. I have used it to effect a quick, inexpensive transformation of every home I’ve ever had. The aim of this book is to show how you, too, can use this wonderful material to bring colour into your home – colour with all its emotional richness and variety. I also look at paints of the past, and consider how these have become our current ‘modern’ and ‘historical’ paints, and what paint might offer in the future.

I’ve been delighted to be able to work on this book with the venerable designer Stafford Cliff, the man who contributed so much to the look of the Conran publications in the 1970s and whose ideas are still fresh and youthful. This book promises to have a few surprises between its pages. Unlike the previous books in this series, The Tile Book and The Kilim and Tribal Rug Book, which were more conservative in appearance, Paint promises to be uncompromisingly contemporary, even cutting edge.

Like Paint, this will be designed by Stafford Cliff and will look forward as well as back, exploring the history, variety and potential for fabric in the contemporary home.
