In the new (and very pretty) book Home, interior decorator Emma Blomfield guides you from room to room, empowering you to create a look you love and a space you are proud to show off—without breaking the bank or starting from the ground up.
And we have 10 copies to give away to lucky readers, but more on that later!
Emma demystifies the five elements of decorating—needs and wants, colour and pattern, shape and size, placement, and lighting—and shows how easy it can be to apply them to each room in your house. Whether you’re refreshing your look, moving in, organising your home office, decorating a nursery or creating an outdoor oasis, Emma’s tried and-tested advice will inspire and guide you.
Including original illustrations, clever floor plans, practical decorator’s tips and styling 101s, Home is a timeless handbook for anyone who has ever doubted their decorating ability, or craved a helping hand through the process.
Emma runs a successful interior styling business and in 2015 she launched The Decorating School, an online school that teaches homeowners how to decorate their homes with confidence. Emma’s previous experience as a property stylist and with an online furniture and homewares store gave her the industry exposure she needed to set up her own business. She spotted a gap in the market for e-decorating and has pioneered making interior design accessible, affordable and available via the web to homeowners and renters across Australia.
Emma consults in person in Sydney. Her high-profile jobs include styling the homes of pop star Guy Sebastian and X-Factor winner Samantha Jade. She also travels around Australia, bringing her decorating knowledge to a wider audience by teaming up with homewares retailers and teaching locals the principles of decorating and styling through interactive workshops.
With that watercolour cover, we think Home will look great on your coffee table too!
Home is published by Hardie Grant and in all good bookshops from today.
