Packed full of the homemade and pre-loved, this book is a treasure trove for those who have a passion for the restored & reinvented, or who seek to add their own creativity to furnishing, through a love of crafting, painting,or stitching.
Homespun style is most comforting & homely,
but with an added modern twist
of fresh colour combinations and unique one-off finds.
Just as i like it!
We can take a look inside the rooms of some beautiful homes from various countries, all brimming with individuality and design ideas to inspire. With photographs taken by Debi Treloar, that are full of soulful colour combined with Selina's expert styling and attention to all important little details, the result is a book showcasing a style of decor that feels full of light, colour, the lovingly handmade and a freedom of expression that's not always apparent in other ways of decorating. By this I mean, the style is more about living with what speaks to your heart and enjoying it, than creating a look to impress or live up to.

This book brings together so much of what lifts my heart, about filling a home with what you love. Decorating is always a balance when dealing with repurposing of vintage pieces and adding such an eclectic mix into one home, it could lose identity, instead of enhancing personality. But here we are shown how to add the homespun look in ways that create just the right feel within modern day rooms, and how recycling and reinventing the old, doesnt have to have the sense of being outdated. It can instead create an entirely fresh, yet at the same time comforting feel to our homes, with the added colour of soulfulness and happiness, that really only handcrafted or customised pieces can truly bring.
Selina is an expert tour guide, we can follow her umbrella (which i imagine is neon pink and floral & oh so very pretty) above the crowd within this Homespun World of wonder and never feel lost!
Love and homespun goodness,
