A Beautiful Mess Happy Handmade Home by Elsie Larson & Emma Chapman

Who hasn't perused the blog, A Beautiful Mess?  Even this grandmother has!  These young women, Elsie Larson & Emma Chapman, sisters...have created their own business by creating beautiful things.  They even created A Beautiful Mess photo app--the #1 selling photo app.  Well, now they've created an inspiring book with some of their best ideas.  Think Pinterest in a book.

The book is filled with wonderful photography of their two homes and the creative ways they've been inspired to make their homes their own.  Throughout the book, you are encouraged to be creative in your own home and not to care if an idea is too trendy or overused.  You are to make your home your own and a place you want to come home to.

Some of my favorite ideas are hand-painted lettering on plates and mugs--and even a wall!  They take the ordinary and make it extraordinary.  It's pretty obvious these girls like color!  It's everywhere and done in such a fun way.  There are ideas for decorating for parties, dinners, and outdoor fun.  You won't go wrong purchasing this book!

I'd give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
I received this book for free from BLOGGING FOR BOOKS for this review.
