Thames & Hudson is one of our favourite one-stop shops for gift giving, and as part of our Christmas Countdown they’re offering TDF readers 25% off site-wide! The offer applies across all Thames & Hudson Australia titles, and we’ve got a few saved for our own Christmas lists this year…

We’re always keen to have a snoop at everything design and interiors related (obviously!) and the new book by Brisbane-based interior designer Anna Spiro is an absolute MUST HAVE. A master of patterns and colours, A Life In Pattern gives insight into the designer’s style and process through tours of 20 stunning projects.

Where They Purr takes a slightly different approach to how we usually look at aspirational interiors, focusing on the fancy felines that call them home. This new book photographed by Paul Barbera tours 28 creative Australian homes, with beautiful spaces designed by top Australian architects including Hannah Tribe of Tribe Studio, Adriana Hanna and Robson Rak, plus a profile on the furry friend that lives there.

Lots of us have been dreaming of the tree change over the last couple of years, and we’re still obsessed with all things quaint and country style. How to French Country is a book of design inspiration from southwest France, and is the ultimate guide to recreating effortless French country style wherever you are. Closer to home is the new book from chef Annie Smithers, Recipe for a Kinder Life, weaving 70 delicious recipes that celebrate harvested seasonal produce with lyrical meditations and anecdotes on living in a slower, more thoughtful way.

Art-lovers should take a look at Still Life by curator Amber Creswell Bell, documenting the work of more than forty still-life artists presenting the genre in a uniquely Australian light. For the ultimate glam coffee table book, Slim Aarons: Style surveys iconic photographer’s work capturing lifestyles of the rich and the fashionable.

You could pretty much polish off every holiday gift you need to buy in the one go on the Thames & Hudson website!

Thames & Hudson Christmas Countdown offer:

25% off all Thames & Hudson distributed publisher titles and games site wide. Excludes all TASCHEN books. Enter code TDF25 at checkout to apply. Valid from November 15th to December 1st. Free shipping on all orders over $50.
