In the intro of her book, Home, crafting mastermind Beci Orpin declares "the homes I like the most are not the ones that are uber clean and styled to the hilt". It's this statement that sums up the ethos of her latest release - and a styling preference I also share. What unfolds in the pages after is nothing short of charming!
If you're after a companion for all things creative, Find & Keep by Melbourne designer Beci Orpin is it. This funky mumma not only creates clothing and homeswares, but has produced some too-cute stationery too.Her book, which is ideal for both kids and big kids at heart (guilty!), is a step-by-step guide that'll show you how to make a range of quirky and creative gems.
If it's one thing I do on a regular basis on lunch breaks, it's walk to the bookstore nearby, head straight to the home and design section and look for new book releases.Some need a few minutes of perusing, some you flick through for five minutes and then put back on the shelf and some - like this little gem from creative genius Megan Morton - need about 15 seconds of flick-through before you march to the counter and bag that bad boy!
