Homespun Style

This lovely book arrived in the post yesterday. Homespun Style by Selena Lake, just published by Ryland, Peters and Small. It is a celebration of crafty, vintage and colourful interiors and I foresee many hours of browsing ahead. I had my nose buried in it for a couple of hours yesterday evening, and plan to sit down with it again today. I love colour, and this book is all about beautiful vibrant shades. 

Sometimes, these kinds of interiors books have rather obvious text, but not this one. It is full of ideas, inspirations and quick-to-achieve tips. The glorious photos, by Debi Treloar, are original, too, so you don't get a sense of deja vu. There are homes from around the world, including France and Scandinavia.

I especially love this interior (above). And this one....(and that table on the front cover)...

Gorgeous and highly recommended. 


  1. Ooh thanks, it looks fabulous; I've just gone and reserved it online at my library.


About Me

My Photo
I'm a freelance journalist living in a village in East Northamptonshire with my husband and youngest son. I love visiting car boot sales, auctions and markets and writing about my inexpensive finds, and also some small craft projects and my attempts at watercolour painting and patchworking. I'm the editor of a local magazine, so I find out about loads of interesting things that are happening in my community, some of which I share here, too.
