Kara Roselund (Paperback)



For years, photographer and stylist Kara Rosenlund's passion was searching for a shack where the bush met the beach. When she found an original 70s A-frame weekender on an island off the east coast of Australia, weekends took on a new meaning. Nesting in this house deepened her appreciation for simple pleasures and showed her the value of carving out time to really make the most of Saturdays and Sundays.

In this personal guide to enjoying the power of weekends, Kara invites us into her A-frame. She shares the interiors of her home and reveals her styling philosophy with helpful tips for composing a vignette. She guides us through her photographic process and shows us how we too can develop an artist’s eye with the camera. She also celebrates the delight in making the perfect prawn sandwich and how to appreciate the simple act of line drying laundry.

Kara Rosenlund is known for her nostalgic take on iconic Australia. This is a personal book dedicated to the quintessential spirit of summer weekends in Australia and how we can best enjoy them through interiors, food and nature.
