Reviewing "A Beautiful Mess Happy Handmade Home"

   "A Beautiful Mess Happy Handmade Home"by Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman, is a fun and beautiful look at DIY crafts and projects you can do to brighten and liven up your home decor.   Elsie and Emma are the sisters behind the very popular blog "A Beautiful Mess".  Their specialty is crafty, fun projects anyone can do without breaking the bank.
    The book is organized into home categories such as dining rooms, bedrooms, and small spaces.  Each chapter contains an array of projects with bold colors and design. (Eye candy for anybody who loves to decorate.)  The sisters make a point to say that these projects are created using their own personal style and taste, and that each one can serve as a jumping off point for your own decorating ideas.  So even if your taste doesn't quite match up with theirs, I guarantee you will find something that will inspire you to try something new in your house.
     I really enjoyed this book and all the ideas that popped into my head while reading it.   It's always nice to get a fresh perspective on decorating and this book is full of inspiration.   Even the projects that may not have been my style, planted seeds in my head for future decorating opportunities. I've been itching to do a little redecorating at our house and this was the perfect thing to get my brain going.

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
