The Thoughtful Home

Artful and inspirational, this delightful guide to home decorating offers a gentle nudge to those of us struggling to pull together an interior design scheme for our homes. In it, home décor and magazine stylist Tahn Scoon, shows us how to look at our possessions and space anew, and rekindle a love for all that is old, faded and well-worn, with imperfections evident. Her philosophy marries new and old with natural materials, textures and tones, to create a style that offers layers of comfort and familiarity with practicality and a strong sense of individuality. If your budget is meagre or without restraint, there are treatments here for floors, walls and windows that will help you plan anew, and for those with practical skills there are projects to breathe new life into furniture and soft furnishings. Floral art brings color, scent and texture into the home, breathing life into every area: learn how with Tahn's simple instructions. Leading stylist and designer, Tahn Scoon, shares all the 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 incorporate built-in storage at a fraction of the custom cost, give children's rooms the vintage treatment, and how to professionally style your home so it's 'magazine shoot' ready! How to projects include how to create a silk scarf curtain; crystal decanter light fitting; and 'chalk' paint a vintage frame. -- Tahn Scoon
