Kelly Edwards, whose first job was on HGTV’s Design on a Dime, published a new book this May: The Design Cookbook, Recipes for a Stylish Home.
It is a very affordable (about $20 on BN.com and amazon.com), but large, paperback full of great photos and DIY tips.
The content is really thorough. I think it would be a great gift for a recent college grad, or newly married couple.
I also thought there was a fantastic section on kid’s rooms with a lot of inspiration.
The book is on my radar because one of my projects is published under the “Dining Room” section.
For each section (i.e. Dining Rooms, Kid’s Rooms, etc) you see nice, large photos and a corresponding ‘recipe’ on the other side which explains what elements went into creating the room, along with designer tips.
This format is a really unique approach and I had a great time reading the book cover to cover over the weekend! Make sure you check it out!
Heather, this is so awesome!!! Congrats!!! Just saw the book on the shelf at B&N last week and thought what a good looking book but had no idea you were in it! Now I have to have it for sure!!! XOXO Way to go!
Great book reference and a neat format. I will have this on my must purchase list. Thanks for sharing!
