It’s a book filled week on Style for a Happy Home this week! I decided to skip today’s mini makeover post in favour of a wonderful new Australian book that has 25 awesome mini makeovers: Home by Melbourne’s own Beci Orpin! When I saw that this book was coming out, I couldn’t think of anything more perfect for this blog about happy homes and in awesome news: I have this copy to give away to one lucky reader! (look for the details at the end of this post).
In this book Beci shares what her idea of a Home is with photos of homes as well as heaps of awesome projects that you can try! Each page is beautifully designed and the photos of the homes are deliberately left to show their lived in state and not styled to perfect like many interiors blogs show. It’s really refreshing and enjoyable to see that real peoples homes look just a bit like ours. You know how I love a lived-in feel!
Lately I’ve been really loving doing more DIYs and finding that making things myself really adds to how much I enjoy being in this little space that I call home. This book has some great projects that I cannot wait to try over the summer! (I’m hoping Santa brings me a copy to keep) It’s separated into 3 sections for Living Spaces, Eating Spaces and Sleeping Spaces with some really fun things to try in each section. I love that they have different degrees of difficulty and look like so much fun to make!
This is a gorgeous book that I think creative and crafty types would just love to unwrap this holiday season. Every page is fun to look at and the instructions are clear and easy to follow (which is always a bonus)! It also has one of the most beautiful spines that I’ve seen, so it will look amazing on your bookshelf too. Just in case that’s important to you. (I’m not alone in loving a good book spine, am I?!)
I’ve seen this book in most local bookshops so you should definitely be able to grab a copy from your local one. Or you could win this copy by entering below!

Disclaimer: I was gifted this book to giveaway after making a comment on a friend’s facebook page about how perfect it would be for my blog. Beci happened to see it and offered me this copy to giveaway. I wasn’t paid for this review and will be buying my own copy of the book if Santa or the Birthday fairy don’t come through for me first. As always, I only share things I think you’ll love. Enjoy and good luck! x
