If you truly believe that a house is not a home, then acclaimed stylist and interiors blogger Mr Jason Grant is here to give you a reason to change your mind. From his popular lifestyle blog to the pages of Vogue Living and Elle Decoration, Jason’s decade of experience has lead to the publishing of his fabulous hard back design Bible, A Place Called Home. This volume of delightfully put together lifestyle, home and interiors tips – with divine photography by the wonderfully talented James Geer – has given a truly novel and down-to-earth approach to how a home should look. In the introduction, Jason claims that all the designer furniture in the world won’t make your living space, instead revealing that heart and soul are the key ingredients to tailoring your home perfectly.
Here at The Design Sheppard, we are hooked on James’ outlook. This book, with its quirky and colourful layout and fine quality manufacturing is something we are pleased to have on display in our own homes. But this is far from your standard coffee-table filler. A Place Called Home, published by Hardie Grant and available now from all major bookshops, is a delightful scrapbook from the ever talented Aussie guru, and between the bindings of its exquisite pages, we find a simple step-by-step guide to kitting out your house with small expressions that truly reflect the person you are.
It’s not heavy on text, instead throwing itself, whole-heartedly into tips and tricks to make the styling of your sanctuary simple and effective, and without having to throw wads of cash at it. You won’t find any rules or regulations here, instead he opts to show you a way of expressing yourself and your personality, making your home not a possession, but an extension of who you are. It works with feeling and intuition above pride and fashion and from page to glorious page, we can see Jason’s wonderful skills as he teaches us all how to create a space that we would be thrilled to call home.
Here are some of the beautiful shots from inside the book for you to swoon over! Enjoy!
