This review is from: Happy Home: Everyday Magic for a Colourful Home (Hardcover)
This is my favourite interiors book of the moment - if, like me, you want page after page of glorious rooms or delightful corners to inspire, drool over or just relax into a dream-like state then this is the book for you. I always start looking at it with a view to calmly and precisely breaking down just what is attracting me about each picture so I can recreate the sensation in my home. The products won't be the same, of course but that's not how this style works. My house is very much furnished with bootsale and charity-shop finds rather than trendy, expensive 'little gorgeous things' so I do get the odd pang of sorrow, however I can still achieve this feel on my budget with a little work and an open eye. But, every time, I'm drawn in so much that I just gorge, eating up colour and idea like chocolate bars until finally I finish page-turning and relax replete and satisfied. Nom, nom, nom - and not a calorie imbibed! Heaven.
