Book Review – 82 Modern Style Ideas to Create a Home

27 Apr

82 Modern Style Ideas to Create at Homeis a book of home styling ideas taken from the Australian magazine Inside Out, with special projects by Tamara Maynes ‘the Queen of Australian craft’.

Projects range from wall decoration to livening up ceramics and making Christmas decorations. This isn’t a step by step guide but rather inspiration and ideas that you can adapt for your own home. Some examples are…

Use blackboard paint to give a piece of furniture a new look.

Frame pretty wrapping papers and floral pictures and layer the frames resting on a mantlepiece or on the floor.

Paint your own pattern, they’ve used stripes here, as a splashback and cover with glass to protect it.

There are lots of ideas especially for beginners but if you’re a relatively seasoned interior designer/crafter you might find it a little simple.

This book was kindly sent to us by the publishers Murdoch Books.
