As the final giveaway of the week celebrating DWYL’s 2nd birthday, I am excited to offer a copy of Holly Becker’s fab new book ‘Decorate Workshop’. I am using this book myself to plan the redecoration of our house, and am already in love with it.

It is full of inspiring images (think the best of Pinterest interior pictures in a book!) and walks you step by step through the decorating process. Holly helps you analyse what kind of style works for you and helps you plan exactly what kind of rooms you want to live in.

When we first moved into our house the previous owners had done a fantastic job of painting so it felt like a waste to redo anything. We lived with their colour choices (blue! red!) for a year and half before spending six months away in Japan. When we got back I realised that the reason we had never quite got the house how we wanted it was because those initial colours were wrong for us. Holly’s book is helping me plan our and create the kind of home we want to live in, and I am loving the process. I think the large amounts of white, taupe and dull silver may have been influenced by the simplicity of the Japanese aesthetic…
