'Whether you're a passionate collector looking for ways to display your finds, or a minimalist on a mission to tame the clutter, The Stuff of Life has you covered.'

Hilary Robertson reveals a multitude of ways to style and display the 'stuff of life' - the flotsam and jetsam of possessions, from pictures and ornaments to hats and bicycles, that we accumulate over the course of time.

In the first chapter, How to Arrange your Stuff, Hilary identifies and illustrates four different approaches to arrangements - intuitive, narrative, practical and curatorial - and shows how each one can be achieved. She also considers the variety of display locations available within the home - walls, mantelpieces, windowsills, chests of drawers, tabletops - and suggests how to make the most of them. Next, in Stories Told by Real Homes, Hilary shares insider knowledge drawn from the experience of creating interiors that fall into five different styles - Neatnik, Bohemian, Naturalist, Sculpture Vulture and Noble Salvage. Some people are magpies - they love stuff; finding, collecting, and displaying it - while their opposite, the minimalists, are on a mission to contain or tame it. The ideas in this book will appeal to magpies, minimalists and everyone in between.

Hilary Robertson began her career as an editorial interiors stylist and journalist on titles including Metropolitan Home, Livingetc and Elle. She is now a celebrated art director, stylist and set designer, much in demand with clients such as West Elm, Canvas, Ochre, Bloomingdales, Sunbrella and Williams Sonoma. Hilary's other book is Monochrome Home (also Ryland Peters & Small). She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and son.
