The Home Style Handbook (Hardcover)
A step-by-step, room-by-room, moodboard-by-moodboard guide to creating a home that reflects your personal style and the way you want to live - from acclaimed Australian-born stylist and online interiors tutor, Lucy Gough.
We all want to live in a home that reflects our personalities, our experiences, our life's journey. But if we are not a professional decorator or stylist, where do we start?
In this inspirational and helpful handbook, interiors stylist and tutor Lucy Gough will teach you how to understand your true style and how to implement it in how you decorate your living space. Your dream home needn't be a spacious, architecturally designed building - it could be small or rented. With this book you'll discover what YOU love and what makes YOU happy so you can surround yourself with the colors, furniture, furnishings and finishing touches that inspire you. For Lucy, every good room scheme starts with a moodboard - she explains how to create your own and features them throughout the book to explore the elements within a series of home case studies and why they work.
The book includes:
- How to translate magazine imagery into your home
- How to create impact with art, plants and accessories
- How to style your kitchen, living room, bathroom, home office and hallway
- Key inspirational case studies
