With a great understanding of what makes a home work well, and a keen eye for colour detail, Shaynna Blaze shares her many years of experience as an interior designer to help you find the perfect solutions for getting the most out of the place you live in.

Beautifully illustrated throughout, Shaynna takes you on a room-by-room tour of the home. She highlights potential problem areas, suggesting easy and innovative solutions, and describing attractive design alternatives for every room – from the public living areas to the private spaces of bathroom and bedroom and the often problematic home office.

Her down-to-earth approach and stylish ideas, as seen on high-rating TV shows Selling Houses Australia and The Block, mean that anyone – whatever their budget – can create their dream home.

'As an interior designer, I'm here not just to make your home pretty but to solve problems and find solutions. Your home is about you, your life and those you invite into your space. With this book, you'll have the confidence to design a home that functions around the way you live.'

Fantastic book


After watching the block, I thought I would invest in having her book at Home to inspire myself. I love it, you can take things from one chapter And combine it with other parts of the book. A great book to browse through As a coffee table book as well.

Not happy I spent money buying this book


Not at all what I expected as she very much stated the obvious such as art work can be the focal point in a room, how you set the dining room table can give a formal or informal feeling to the room, trays are good for holding remotes. I was looking more for answers to questions such as can you have too many bold colours in a room, too many paintings on the wall, what are some options for arranging paintings, can a mirror be too big, can I have too many colours in a room. None of these questions were answered. Thanks Shaynna, but I won't buy another book of yours.



Informative and very practical


I loved this book. I found it very easy to read with good, practical advice. I loved the pictures and the summary at the end of each chapter.
