Home will appeal to fans of Beci and to those who loved her previous publication, Find and Keep.
Filled with 25 creative projects, each individually imagined by Beci, and designed especially for the home environment, Home will make you fall in love with your house, all over again. Similar to Find and Keep, Home is filled with inspiration and crafty ideas, along with projects designed by Beci, but this time specifically created for you home. The book is separated into three spatial areas: Living Space, Working Space and Sleeping Space. Each chapter is filled with photos and quirky illustrations from Beci, along with solid ideas on how to beautify your home, Beci style. At the end of each chapter there is a collection of projects created by Beci especially for this book, each with a varying level of difficulty, but definitely something for everyone.
Try your hand at making cushions, or creating your own duvet cover. Be inspired to design your own wall art, or perfect your workspace with carefully designed space-saving techniques that are both beautiful and functional. Enter the world of Beci's Home and be inspired to make and create objects and artwork that will enhance your living space and make your house feel all brand new again.
About the Author
Beci Orpin was born in Melbourne during the early 70s to hippie parents. For the first 3 years of her life she lived out of the back of a landcrusier travelling around Australia, and never had to wear shoes. On return to Melbourne she moved into an inner-city commune, where she developed a love for drawing and decided that was all she ever wanted to do. She has a BA in textile design at RMIT and has been working freelance and exhibiting her artwork both locally and internationally ever since. With husband and business partner Raph, she started clothing line Princess Tina in 2001, and now has a clothing line, Tiny Mammoth; she also creates homewares and stationary-based products under her own name and regularly designs clothes and products for Gorman and Urban Outfitters. This is Beci's second book.
"Warning: The desire to craft is a guaranteed aftereffect of purchasing this new DIY guide by design guru Beci Orpin. You'll be creatively inspired by the wide array of ideas, from homemade coasters and trivets to lampshades and much more." -"Foam Magazine"
