Here at Interiors Addict there are two things we’ve always been big on: style without the snobbery (so your home doesn’t have to be full of designer or expensive pieces to look fabulous) and your home being a reflection of the people who live in it, with real personality. So stylist Tahn Scoon’s latest book, The Thoughtful Home, really appeals.
“Basically, the idea behind the book was to show people how to create fresh, simple and pretty interiors, even on a tight budget – it includes heaps of insider advice and a handful of super easy how-to projects,” she says.
The Queensland interior stylist and decorator, who also wrote New Vintage, shares all her insider tips and tricks on how to create thoughtful, authentic and beautiful interiors – homes that are kind to the purse, kind to the planet and a pleasure to live in.
Insider tips include how to achieve bespoke style cabinetry at a fraction of the cost, how to give children’s rooms the vintage treatment and how to professionally style your home so it’s magazine shoot ready!
How-to projects include a designer fabric cutting cushion, crystal decanter light fitting and ‘chalk’ painted vintage frame.
While being a mum doesn’t give me much time to read at the moment, I’ve flicked through my copy and found it a lovely browse.
