Eclectic, livable, personal: these are the qualities that epitomize today's most captivating modern homes, turning them into spaces brimming with individual style. In "Simply Contemporary," renowned photographer Solvi dos Santos shares her unique portfolio of twenty-eight homes that have been updated to reflect the personalities and passions of the people who live in them. None of the properties has been made this way through exorbitant budgets, extravagant shopping sprees, or pages of style tips from glossy magazines. Rather, the homeowners looked to the items they already own and love to create dwellings that are full of personal significance and history. These spaces have been gutted, rebuilt, adapted, or simply redecorated, and not a single one was produced under the watchful gaze of interior designers. The end result is a collection of modern interiors that are constantly evolving, bringing a fresh new spin to contemporary design that tailors itself to the lives of each home's inhabitants. Much of the beauty of the spaces in "Simply Contemporary" is derived from the objects within: African masks in a lakeside apartment in Copenhagen revealing a fashion designer's penchant for collecting, or a kitchen blackboard hanging below a painting in a Dutch country villa showing that a family's need for practicality doesn't override their love for art. From a family's weekend houseboat off the Danish coast to a restored farmhouse in Provence, from an architect's New York City loft high above Chinatown to a writer's hideaway in the shadows of Palma's cathedral, this stunning collection will inspire you to embrace the items already in your home to create warm, comforting spaces that radiate individual personality. "Simply Contemporary" transforms the often daunting concept of contemporary, modern decorating through interiors that are at once aspirational and accessible. Whether you're searching for inspiration to redesign your home office or ideas to personalize your country getaway, "Simply Contemporary" will spark the creativity of anyone looking to embrace individuality and meaning to create the perfect comfortable home, regardless of location, size, or budget.

    Shipping Times

    For $10 Shipping Australia-wide: We endeavour to process your item(s) within 24/48 business hours. We use a combination of Australia Post (for smaller orders) and a shipping company to deliver your order.  You can expect your items within 4-5 days outside peak (Christmas) season. 

    For in-store pickup: Our warehouse is Melbourne-based. We deliver customer orders to our stores on a regular but somewhat unpredictable schedule. If you are based in Melbourne your order is likely to arrive at your selected store earlier than if you select an interstate in-store pickup option.

    Interstate stores could take up to 3 weeks to receive the book you have ordered. 

    Your chosen store will get in touch with you by email to let you know your book has arrived. 

    Change of Mind - Remainder Marks

    Generally we do not accept returns due to a change of mind. 

    Our books are remainders which means that they occasionally have a texta mark at the base of the book.  This is one reason our prices are so low.  Unfortunately we cannot accept returns for books that are marked in this way. 

    Change of Mind - Mystery Boxes

    We do not generally provide a change-of-mind refund simply because a Mystery Box contains books you are not interested in.  Any refunds we may give will be on a discretionary basis and will depend on the box being shipped back to us. You would be required to pay return shipping for your box.

    Mystery Box - Important to Read:  We do our best to ensure that our Mystery Boxes contain books selected from a wide range of categories.  (Aside from specific Mystery Boxes such as YA Mystery, of course).  As such, you're almost certainly not going to love all the books.  However, they are about $3 each, so can be re-gifted, used for craft, used to bulk out your collection, saved for a hobby you don't yet have... it's up to you!

    We will, however, provide you with a refund for any duplicates of the same title in a Mystery (or any) Box.  Please send a photograph with your email.  The refund is calculated as a proportion of the number of books in the box. 

    If you are concerned you might not like the books in a Mystery Box, we strongly encourage you to try one of our category boxes instead - which have the full book list published in the description.  

    Damaged or incorrect orders 

    If you have received items that are damaged or incorrect please contact us at help@bookgrocer.com. If your return is accepted, we’ll send you a return shipping label, as well as instructions on how and where to send your package. Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted. 

    Please inspect your order upon reception and contact us immediately if the item is defective, damaged or if you receive the wrong item, so that we can evaluate the issue and make it right.

    Exceptions / non-returnable items

    Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns on sale items or gift cards. 

    Refunds

    We will notify you once we’ve received and inspected your return, and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be automatically refunded on your original payment method. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.
