82 Modern Style Ideas to Create at Home

Some books you buy for craft ideas, some books you buy for a bit of DIY inspiration and some books – like 82 Modern Style Ideas to Create at Home from Inside Out magazine – you buy because it covers both bases (and then some)!

Some of the ideas are simple, like the concept of using a flag as a tablecloth, while other projects require a little more work, like the idea below of applying tattoo to your floorboards to give them their very own unique style. If only I had floorboards!

I don’t know about you but I got that overwhelming feeling of wanting to rush out and buy such supplies. A Christmas section is also included – and lovers of all things festive will go gaga as they flick through the pages.

The best part though, is that so many of the ideas are great for renters who can’t make permanent changes to their home. There are so many cute and quirky projects, like the garland below, that you can whip up in no time and pop into the corner of your room (it would also be amazing as decoration at a party).

Anytime I am feeling in need of inspiration I pick this book up and take a flick through. It really will fill your mind with a million ideas you could use around your home. And I swear there are more than 82 ideas (some of them are just subtle and hidden in the photographic styling!).
