Home and Garden from our 2017 Winter Newsletter

Justina Blakeney’s colorful, comfortable, and free-spirited design style made her first book, The New Bohemians, a bestseller. Now Blakeney returns with a handbook that shows readers how to create that style for themselves. The best part about her design philosophy is that the most important elements have nothing to do with money; rather, Blakeney stresses clarity, color, plants, and natural materials to create a welcoming home that speaks to you and makes you (and your guests) happy the moment they walk in the door. I can’t get enough of her love of pattern, texture, tiles, and textiles—not to mention her joyous nature. “Home décor should be fun. If you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong.” - S.B.

Beautiful photography, whimsical staging, and organization solutions! The first Remodelista book was an inspiring design book, and this second volume shows all the organizational tips and tricks you need to know. It’s the younger, hipper, cooler version of Real Simple (which I also love). - Megan
