Review

"How to be crafty... yet cool! The hot new book among DIY folk is The Homemade Home by Sania Pell." -- Grazia, Aug 2010

"The simple but stunning projects from Sania Pell's new book had us reaching for our craft baskets." -- Good Homes, May 2010

"Sania Pell's book is perfect for anyone who likes a 'crafty' home filled with individual items." -- Scottish Sunday Mail, Sept 2010

"This book is imaginative without being over-the-top, handmade without being kitschy or tacky, and it's a book that will encourage crafty beginner's without frustration while equally challenging advanced creatives with new and rewarding projects." -- Decor8, April 2010

Format: Hardcover
The Homemade Home features stylish and affordable projects that show you how to customize your space on a budget. All 300 photographs were taken by the talented Penny Wincer, a favorite photographer of mine from the UK, so I knew the moment I saw her name on this book that I'd love the visuals -- and I do!

This gorgeous book shares ideas and inspiration that are both accessible and provide readers with an opportunity to inject individuality into a home in order to avoid that familiar catalog-style that is boring and lacking in character. There isn't one photo I don't like in this book, and not one project I wouldn't try -- I really like how author/stylist Sania Pell encourages readers to use things that we already have - upcycling and recycling them into new, custom items.

I have hundreds of design, decorating and craft books and read dozens of magazines and hands down, this book is one of my favorites. It's imaginative without being over-the-top, handmade without being kitschy and tacky, and it's a book that will encourage crafty beginner's without causing frustration while equally challenging advanced creatives with new and rewarding projects that are fresh and fun.

I bought this book after reading Holly Becker's review of it on [...], and I wish I had heard of it sooner. Sania Pell has such creative ideas that are perfect for someone with a short attention span such as myself. There are some quick projects that I can do while the kids are napping and then there are some that will require more time. The tutorials are clear and consise and the photographs are absolutely stunning. I can't wait to get started on these crafts!

i love this book! it has a lot of really great ideas and i love how 'hip' it is. i am not a mom so it is nice to find projects that don't require your children to help :)

What I love about this book is very versatile, because it carters for everyone event who doesn't have any experience to do DIY project. The projects are so inspiring and not expensive at all. I feel very inspired after read the book and never get enough to flip it back again. And also encouraged to do some projects with the very easy instruction to follow.
It highly recommended for those who would like to start a DIY project without blowing the budget.

Great book for inspiring modern and "un corny" home projects, whether you follow these examples or make spin-offs of your own. Many are not complicated or time consuming and the photos are really nice. Excellent addition to the home decor library.

Guess my expectations were too high, but this book was filled with fancy photos on how to sew things I don't really find interesting. Maybe it's just me ... maybe it would be more interesting to someone of a younger age group (call me mid fifties) but I was looking for something with more content then pillows (or other things that are not really useful) decorated with hand sewn birds or flowers. If YOU find that interesting - with bright and bold colors - then have at it. Enjoy.
