My Review... 

Homespun style is a homely, crafty look that has been given a modern twist with bright colours, whimsical patterns and textural fabrics: an interior style that is unique to the individual creating it. But don't worry if painting or crafting is not your thing, Selina shares with you an abundance of great places to source one of a kind gems to create this look for yourself.

The book is split into three main chapters, starting with "Elements" of the look. In this chapter Selina covers homespun modern craft, how to use colour & pattern and how to customize & recycle. In Modern Craft she shows you some great ideas on storing all your craft needs in a creative, aesthetically pleasing way. In Colour & Pattern there are some fabulous shots of patchwork walls and cushions and in Customize & Recycle she shows you cute vintage bunting ideas and adorable cupcake wrapper garlands.

The second chapter "Details" looks at homespun textiles, furniture & lighting and display. In Textiles there are some whimsical cushions that layer crochet over prints and delicately adorned buttons give a chair a new lease of life! Furniture & Lighting is all about choosing display furniture and the quirkiest lampshades. For great wall art and statement pieces, Display has all your needs covered.

The last chapter "Spaces" shows how the homespun style can be used in all the rooms in your house including creative spaces, outdoor living and children's rooms. Kitchen spaces are kept practical and fun with lots of bright colours and an array of prints while children's rooms are adapted and changed to suit their evolving lives of baby, toddler to confident school goer.

Homespun Style by Selina Lake is an adorable hardback book full of bright and beautiful, unique, inspiring decorating ideas. At a recommended price of £19.99, I think this hardback book is a brilliant buy as it is has so many great tips and I can't stop pouring over the gorgeous photos!

Please note that my opinions are my own and I am not paid for these reviews (apart from receiving a free book, of course!).

To go with this fabulous new book Selina is having a book party and homespun market event next month, which I for one can't wait to go to!

Have a sweet day!
