Get some grace for your own place

If you love seeing what Kate Alexander from Places and Graces creates on the show, you can now take her advice home with you!

Her first book, Finishing Touches/ How to find Grace in your Place, is a practical guide for creating your real dream home. It promises over 150 pages of practical interior styling insights.

Says Kate “the launch of my book and the Creative Living show in the same month is a happy co-incidence, but also the result of hard-work getting my message out there. I published this book because I believe every interior space has beauty. While not all of us can live in our dream home, we each deserve a little of our dream home in our reality. The show is an opportunity to provide a tangible example of the tips in my book.”

The book forward is written by architect and writer Bill McKay. It suggests “this book is a good friend to have”. It shows you quickly and simply how much you can do and gives you the confidence to “refresh your home and feel better about where you live”.

Finishing Touches will retail for $49.99. Available at and all good bookstores from Friday September 30th.

Kate will be discussing her book and signing copies between 10 and 5pm on Friday September 30th at art print shop endemicworld – 62 Ponsonby Road, Auckland.
