Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

If flat-pack furniture or expensive designer pieces aren't your thing, and you'd rather make your own cushion cover than buy it, then Homespun Style is for you.

The Homespun look is about supporting artists and craftspeople, hunting down one-of-a-kind gems made by people with talent and passion. Fans of Homespun Style are no stranger to a flea market, online auction, or second-hand store either, always on the lookout for unusual furniture and quirky accessories. Interiors stylist Selina Lake and writer Joanna Simmons show how this homely, crafty look has been given a modern twist with cheerful colors, tactile fabrics, and bold combinations. The book begins with the Ingredients of the look, from the basics of modern craft today to how to make color and pattern work. It focuses on ingenious ways to recycle and reuse, from transforming furniture with a lick of paint to finding new uses for everyday items. The Details section looks at textiles, furniture and display, and the second half of the book, Spaces, reveals how the style works beautifully in Living Spaces, Cooking & Eating Spaces, Bedrooms & Bathrooms, Children's Rooms, Craft & Work Rooms, and Outside. Homespun Style reflects our growing passion for all things crafted, stitched, knitted, and painted. Selina Lake visits homes packed with personality and interest, full of homemade pieces, restored junk-store finds, and one-off treasures.
