If you're like me, you have come to admire Selina's lovely styling through her other books Bazaar Style and Romantic Style, where you can count on playful mixes of pattern and texture, always garnished with flowers or fabric, and always punctuated with an effervescent pop of hot pink.
Like this dreamiest of bedrooms in soft shades of aqua, blue and mint.
Or this colorful kitchen on page 25 that I seem to get stuck on every time.
Beautiful rooms of well-organized crafting chaos: bins and baskets of yarn and paper and buttons.
Fabulous details without being fussy
Not only is Selina's imaginative styling showcased in beautiful photography by Debi Treloar,
but the layout is fabulous and the words by Joanna Simmons are perfect.
Remember the bright, uncomplicated colours that filled our childhood paintboxes?
If you follow Selina's blog and Facebook page as I do, you know one of the reasons why her books are so fun, special and lovely:
Selina loves what she does and does what she loves.
Okay, tomorrow it's back to working on the book for me! I hope to share more on that soon.
But tonight, I am catching up on reading blog posts!
