Homemade Home by Sania Pell and published by Cico Books is the third in our new series of Bookmarks book reviews.
We’re often in awe of people who seem to find the time and have the creativity to make something out of nothing. In our case, we either don’t get round to doing it or don’t think we’ve got the skills.
Homemade Home will put paid to both – it will motivate you to make a start and it will give you the instructions in how to do it.
Recycling household materials was once common in most households.
There was a certain decline in during the latter half of the twentieth century, but that trend is now very much reversing again…
…whether in the guise of recycling, up-cycling or remodelling.
This could be for many reasons – a new awareness of conserving the world’s resources, saving money or creating an individual/distinctive look.
Whatever the reason, this book’s a perfect companion.
The pages are divided into quick ideas and larger projects.
There are easy to follow, step-by-step instructions – and some lovely photographs of the finished items in household settings.
There’s plenty of opportunity to adapt the ideas in terms of materials, design or finish.
The author’s objective is to inspire you to have a go… and it certainly works!
Before you know it you’ll be collecting buttons & scraps of material.
And, if you already have such a collection, it will offer some fun & interesting ways to use it all.
Homemade Home can also be bought from our vintage design bookshops: Amazon UK | Amazon US
