Home by Emma Blomfield: Win this new Decorating Book

Home by Emma Blomfield has finally landed, Creatives, and I couldn’t be more excited.

In this new release, the talented Miss Blomfieldย guides us on a style journey from room to room, imparting her pearls of wisdom to have us decorating every pocket ofย our homes with confidence. What I love most about this book is that it’s not like so many others. It’s not packed with pictures; a book merely for inspiration and ideas. This is wordy, which is exactly what you want when you intend to learn the fundamentals of home design.

Having worked with Emma in the past (you can check out some of her divine work here), I’ve gotta declare that I love her mantra. Every room she designs and decorates for her clients is all about creating a stylish interior without the price tag. And her book reflects that approach too.

Emma’s book is published through Hardie Grant, who were also behind my own release, Sydney Precincts. So I’m very excited Emma has joined the Hardie Grant family. And what a book to kick off with!

Home by Emma Blomfield: Pretty and Practical

This handbag-ready style bible book is your complete companion for all things decorating, and it’s got everything you’ll need to deck out your home without spending buckets of cash.

Chapter one delves into the decorating basics; finding inspiration, assessing your space, selecting a colour palette, combining interior styles and more. Once you have that down pat, Emma begins taking you through every room in your abode. From entryways to living rooms, dining rooms to home offices, almost every inch is covered.

Emma even goes beyond just rooms and shares her advice for choosing decor items like rugs, window treatments, candles, cushions, art and more. And there’s even a resource chapter toward the end of the book that I’m sure you’ll find useful too.

I also love the amazing illustrations throughout this guide. They’re by the very talented Maddison Rogers and they really help support the styling and decor advice Emma gives.

“My vision for the book was for it to be a timeless classic full of decorating advice that follows a formula anyone can follow,” Emma explains. “And something you could refer to for years and still be inspired by”.

Mission accomplished!

    I would love a copy of Emma’s book because my home has lost it’s identity in the last few months, and has now been over run with baby toys (not the nice scandi type either) and contraptions for him to sit in. Now my home is in dire need of an overhaul but with minimal $ spent lol.

    Emma has been and is a huge inspiration of mine, I love the way she delivers her advice, simple and concise. This enables me to achieve the look and feel I always knew I wanted, but couldn’t without her advice. Emma’s design and styling oozes nothing but passion and a love for what she does, and I’d love to have that captured in her book, in my home.
