Karen McCartney's eighteen most fascinating homes in the world: The Alchemy of Things invites you into the homes and minds of eighteen fascinating UK, Australian, US and European creatives selected by esteemed interior design editor and author, Karen McCartney. These artists, interior designers, architects, collectors, gallerists, stylists, furniture designers and vintage retailers take you on an eccentric, whimsical, curated and clever tour of their interior design and home decor, and the philosophies behind their creations. An esteemed interior design editor and author: Author Karen McCartney is best known for her work in the world of interiors, architecture and design across print and digital media. She edited Marie Claire Lifestyle and was the founding editor of Inside Out magazine before becoming Editorial Director (Lifestyle) at News Corp Australia.
