Books: Decorate by Holly Becker

Founder of Decor8 blog, Holly Becker has just had her first book published, Decorate, and it is literally packed full of great ideas, inspiration and photography. Holly and co-author Joanna Copestick haven't focused on one particular style of interiors, but rather looked at what, why and how we decorate our homes.  It really does seem to cover every aspect of interior design and decoration - from how you lay out your space, to wallpaper, to making your home brighter.

 The format of the book means you can dip into it at any time, and there are lots of small sections of text, and bullet pointed guidelines, plus lots of lovely quotes and tips from interior designers, stylish homeowners and bloggers (including me!)

 They advice on developing your own style, by using moodboards, and building up your collection of furniture and objects gradually over time, to create an eclectic home that reflects your personality.

 Its also lovely to see some of the gorgeous homes of designers, stylists and photographers such as Sania PellJonathan Adler and Amy Butler.

This is definitely one book I'll be referring to when I need inspiration!
