Creative people live in creative spaces; this is the philosophy behind this beautiful new book by blogger and photographer Emily Quinton. She has interviewed “makers” across the UK, US and Netherlands, sharing how different crafters and artists create a home that inspires them and reflects their own aesthetics.

The book is split into four loose categories: Rustic, Homespun, Retro Chic and Eclectic. We’re introduced to each of the artists and then shown around their homes as they talk about how they’ve filled their spaces with the colours, textures and objects they love. With each designer it’s clear that the look and feel of their home is an important expression for them. Donna Wilson shares how her London house is full of light, the white walls brought to life with colourful hangings, plates and cushions, while textile designer Anna Joyce has filled her home with art, most of it made by members of her family.
This is an inspiring book that will leave you determined to fill your home with handmade objects and spend time ensuring it both looks and feels the way you’d truly like it to. We particularly like the range of styles on show – it’s all about creating a home to suit you, helping you to feel rested and inspired every day.

Inside Crochet readers can buy Maker Spaces for £13.99 including P&P by calling Macmillan Direct on 01256 302 699 and quoting the reference GLR CN3.
