Decorate Workshop : A Creative 8 Step Process for Transforming Your Home
Publication Date: 31 October 2012
After the phenomenal success of Decorate, Holly Becker offers a very personal approach to decorating advice in the Decorate Workshop. Taking the same friendly and approachable tone that has made her decor8 blog so popular, Holly draws her inspiration from beautiful homes in locations around the world, including London, Paris, New York and Amsterdam, to guide the reader through their own decorating projects. Filled with inspirational photographs and words of wisdom from Holly herself, the Decorate Workshop is an invaluable guide to finding and filtering design information and the wealth of shopping choices that can engulf a novice decorator.
Holly shows readers how to be inspired and stay inspired, how to define and refine their own style, how to tackle a project practically with the use of professional-style moodboards, and ultimately how to apply all that new-found knowledge to their own homes. In Planning Holly takes you through the basics of starting out, whether you are beginning from scratch with a new home, adapting an existing room or looking for a small-scale makeover. In Decorating she explores a wealth of aesthetic choices, from neutral palettes, to exploring colour, texture and pattern through to introducing personal touches, such as artwork, books, collections and flowers. Furnishing your Home gets more specific, with ideas for curating every room, from buying a great table for your dining room, to the best textiles to dress the bed. Part essential reference, part jotter for notes, lists and reminders, the Decorate Workshop will be a covetable purchase for Holly's legions of fans.
