Life Unstyled by Emily Henson

This beautiful book is all about embracing imperfection, making the most of the space you have and the things that you love! Nobody really wants to live in (or manages to maintain!) a show-home house and Emily Henson shows that homes can be beautiful, creative and inspiring but at the same time a little rough around the edges, with signs of everyday life throughout.
A real home is a happy home and every crafter knows that clutter is just part of the creativity, right?!
