My Favorite DIY Books of 2016
I’ve gathered my most anticipated books for the remainder of 2016, so if you don’t already have an Amazon Prime account, hop to it and make sure these great reads are on your doorstep as soon as they are released!
The Magnolia Story – October 18, 2016
Does this one even need an explanation?
America’s DIY Sweethearts wrote a book! If you haven’t watched Fixer Upper of heard of Magnolia Market, go ahead and start binge-watching HGTV now. You can thank me later.
A Touch of Farmhouse Charm: Easy DIY Projects to Add a Warm and Rustic Feel to Any Room– December 6, 2016
Liz Fourez is the voice behind one of my favorite blogs – Love Grows Wild. Her style is beyond perfection. My only complaint here is that I have to wait until December to get my hands on this book!
The Inspired Room Coloring Book: Creative Spaces to Decorate as You Dream – July 1, 2016
Melissa Michaels, the creative genius behind The Inspired Room as well as one of my favorite home decor books, has married two of my favorite pastimes: grown-up coloring books and home decor.
Yep. You heard me.
There is going to be a coloring book dedicated to help you design the home of your dreams. LOVE!
Here’s a sneak peek that Melissa shared on her facebook page:
The creative forces behind chalkfulloflove are introducing an introductory guidebook to the art of creative hand lettering. This is a great way to pick up on the expertise they typically offer in workshops.
So, is hand lettering the new calligraphy? If so, sign me up!
I am seriously obsessing over all things botanical lately.
That’s why I’m beyond excited about the latest book from bestselling design author Selina Lake.
Take a sneak peek inside and bask in the glow of tons of DIY inspiration:
So there you have it! Pre-order books I’m swooning over right now. What are you looking forward to most?
