Better Home and Gardens Studio Spaces: Projects, inspiration, & creative ideas for your creative place
The Introduction to this book says, “… six designers share their inspiration for their studios.” In addition, it also declares, “Inside, you’ll find a collection of the most beautiful studios ever assembled all in one book.” And that promise does not disappoint. Whether you are a scrapbooker, fabric artist or painter, there is some type of inspiration awaiting you anew in this book.
Buttons and ribbons are just naturally beautiful and a collection of them may get your creative juices going just as they do for us here at Home and Living. But while your craft projects may be important to you, storing all the stuff so that you can have both access and beauty is what makes a pile of craft accouterments a studio. And the difference between doing it fashionably or just having a room where everything gets dumped—may depend on this book for inspiration. So they key words here for beauty sake and the impetus to stay inspired are summed up in the beginning words right on the convenient jacket flap of BHG Studio Spaces—“…conquer clutter and bring order to your supplies with can-do projects…”
“… storing all the stuff so that you can have both access and beauty is what makes a pile of craft accouterments a studio.”
From the acid free paper to the full color glorious photos on every page, BHG Studio Spaces is a wonderful book. Every page is chock-a-block with ideas and tips you’ll want to rip off to create your own special room. These are the types of photographs that yield lots of special details, and clever design secrets in every page you reveal—a true page-turning pleasure.
