THE MAVERICK SOUL

Inside the lives & homes of eccentric, eclectic & free-spirited Bohemians

by Miv Watts & Hugh Stewart. HardieGrant.

A bohemian is a person with an unconventional life; a wanderer, adventurer, an artist, musician or a vagabond. These are people who seek to learn from actual experience. To stand on the edge, to feel the wind around them and make most decisions based on trusting intuition. The homes they have built are full of beauty, memories and comfort, reflecting free thought and free spirit. They are created from discerning choices; from items gathered from a variety of cultures to mementos from unforgettable events.

These homes can be cluttered and chaotic or cool and clean-lined, but they are never contrived – the emphasis being on passion over trend. They are a patchwork of a life lived to the full in every aspect; with truth, curiosity and self-expression.

The Maverick Soul is a sumptuous celebration of 24 creative and bohemian people from around the world, who have opened their lives and homes to interior designer Miv Watts. In England, she wanders around the stunning 17th-century Richmond home of Gael and Francesco Boglioni -- owners of Petersham Nurseries and cafe - then on to France, where singer Marianne Faithfull opens the doors to her white stucco Parisian pied-à-terre. She travels to Australia to meet artist Wendy Whitely and her Lavendar Bay ‘Secret Garden’, then to America, where stylist Linda Rodin, and her grey poodle, Winky, lead her around their personality-filled Chelsea digs.

From apartments to stately homes, this is a portrait of people who have a wide range of different tastes in music, fashion, art and literature, and come from all walks of life. But they are all Maverick Souls - people who live in their truth, the way they want to, surrounded by the history of their own journeys.

Miv Watts began her career as a window dresser for Burberry. She met and married Peter Watts, sound engineer for Pink Floyd, in the late sixties. After having two children in quick succession, Naomi and Ben, she threw herself into becoming a stylist, working for film, TV and private clients. Miv lives in the South of France.

Hugh Stewart is a world-class photographer, who has worked for magazines from i-D to Vanity Fair. He lives in Sydney.
