Interior styling books to me are surely all about finding your individual style...
To be inspired !
Personally the most useful styling books do not distract me with grand scale rooms, rare architectural features and all that.
What I want from an Interior styling book is achievable illustrations of rather normal rooms brought to life with a unique style that can be made to suit my everyday life.

'Homespun Style' to me seems personal.
I have LOTS of Interior books and I really get a buzz from looking at them but Homespun Style is my taste in one. It is a collection of colours, patterns and styling that suits me down to the ground.

I feel cross that people want to write about the Author and feel the need to slate her and her books. It's not helpful.
If Miss Lake and her books are not to your individual taste, that's OK. But please go to a book shop, find the Interiors section and look for an author and their books that you do like and buy them.
This is not a 'How to make' book or I believe Miss Lake or Ryland, Peter & small would have seen fit to add to the title.

I wish to thank Miss Lake for putting this book together. I love looking at it and it's been a wonderful source of inspiration for me, my business and my family home. You can't please everyone but i'm one happy bunny x

I have just bought this book and must say it's like looking through a candy shop window. The explosion of beautiful images on each page had my heart racing and I had to skim through the book first before taking the time as you normally would with a new book. It shows that you don't have to have huge amounts of money to create interesting areas of your home and to not have to worry about cost. As more and more people focus on recycling and creating their own personal style it shows that it can be cheaper unique and a lot of fun to create your own home furnishings. Using recycled/vintage fabrics and creative techniques such as quilting/crochet which have long been forgotton help to create ones' own individual style. People in this book have shown this can be done and it certainly does'nt fail to disappoint. The book is split into various sections containing elements, details & spaces very well laid out and definately a book that I think will be spoke about for a long time to come. It is a joy to look at for inspiration and generally to have on the coffee table in your living room. Well done Selina I think you should be very proud of this beautifully inspiring book.

Selina Lake has succeeded in bringing out another gorgeous book that just inspires me with every page I turn. She has i believe, that special gift for bringing things together, both in terms of her styling and in sourcing the right homes from around the world, to feature under one theme.

The beautifully styled and photographed homes, do not feel unattainable, they show just what can be achieved with a few considered touches. Selina helps us by clearly defining a look, the way that fashion stylists would for magazines shoots, their choices, their expert eye, helping to show us what works together and inspire our own individual choices.

Homespun has been divided into 3 sections:
Elements: covers modern craft, colour & pattern, customising & recycling
Details: covers textiles, furniture & lighting, and display
Spaces: showcases looks within relaxed living, cooking & eating, sleeping & bathing,children's rooms, creative & outdoor spaces

We get to take a look at rooms within some truly beautiful homes, all brimming with individuality and design ideas to inspire. With photographs taken by Debi Treloar, that are full of soulful colour combined with Selina's attention to all important little details, the result is a book showcasing a style of decor that feels full of light, colour, the lovingly handmade and a freedom of expression that uplifts the heart.

Decorating is always a balance, not least so when dealing with the repurposing of vintage pieces and adding such an eclectic mix into one home. Its all too easy to lose identity, instead of enhancing personality.

Selina Lake is simply one of the best interior stylists around. Looked through this book whilst on a trip to Brighton. It is full of wonderful homely interiors with a vintage flavour but still has a modern twist. Fab photography too. A real treat.

By Peasant TOP 500 REVIEWER on 14 Feb. 2012
Format: Hardcover
You might be forgiven for anticipating, from the 'Homespun' bit in the title, a book with projects for you to use to enhance your home. However this book is purely about styling, and to me it seemed very similar to many other titles. Interesting at first, they now all feel rather samey.

Selina Lake's interiors are self-confessedly "feminine"; personally I find them too fussy and unfocused. But that isn't why I've given it only 3 stars. Here we have a funky, cluttered, jazzily colourful style, which is enlivened by a few hand-crafted objects; just a slightly different slant on a dozen other recent interiors publications, but quite honestly if you swapped all the covers over, you could bet me a fiver and I wouldn't be able to tell you which was which!

Several of the interiors featured do focus on rooms set up with all the quaint and ditzy paraphernalia of modern "crafting". They are so exquisitely neat and picturesque; am I alone in seeing the hand of the interior designer pandering to a rich client, rather than the genuine clutter of a busy, messy hobbyist? If you are keen enough on the home-made hobby to have a whole room devoted to it, then you might, like me, find this book frustrating. Because the author seems to assume you'll be buying all them home-crafted objects, m'dears. The text has the usual platitudes about re-using, up-cycling and so on, but the advice runs along the lines of "be creative" (wow!) "anything can look wonderful" (helpful) and in big letters, my favourite, "BUYING OBJECTS FOR DISPLAY IS A JOY", which does rather give the game away. If you are suffering from a failure of inspiration on the buying front, the "sources" section at the back lists all sorts of places you can buy things other people have made.
