My latest Book - Homespun Style

I'm extremely excited to announce the title of my 3rd Interiors Book... Homespun Style which I am currently working on with photographer Debi Treloar. It is going to be all about decorating with craft with lots of homemade ideas, featuring cosy, colourful homes lots of make do and mend ideas, recycled furniture and vintage embellishments. Homespun Style follows on from the success of my last two books, Bazaar Style & Romantic Style and again is being published by Ryland Peters & Small, with Joanna Simmons set to write accompanying words. So far we've photographed homes in Scotland, UK and Norway, off to Paris tomorrow and hopefully Denmark at the end of the month. The above image is by Beata of Rose Hip who has sent me lots of her fab floral crochet-trimmed pillowcases which I've been using in the shoots. Release date is Spring 2012, I will keep you informed as soon as it is available to pre-order. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the theme!

This is a great theme and I look forward to seeing your "spin" on a Homespun theme. It seems many women, including myself, are searching for new ways to upcycle/recycle furniture, flea market treasures, and fabrics/clothing, in this uncertain economic time.

Best of luck with your new book.

I can affirm Beata's beautiful pillowcases......they bring the sweetest dreams to me. They will be a hit in your book.

Gosh I am having palpitations just imaging all the visual gorgeousness and inspiration that your new book will contain!!
Knowing your style and LOVING your previous books, I think you've hit on a very very popular and of-the-moment theme. Have you seen how well the "Mollie Makes" magazine has been received, I think homespun is The Way To Go...very excited!
