Sy – Love For Textiles
Put together and produced by the ‘IKEA family’, the back of this book says,
“This is not a book to read, it’s a book to touch. To browse in. To be inspired by. Enthused by”.
I’ve never described a book as ‘relaxed’, but that’s exactly what this is. It doesn’t get caught up with strict instructions, directions or rules. But it does give you a great feel for what can be achieved with relatively little effort or expense.
Not a whizz with a sewing machine or a needle and thread? No worries, this book is full of good short cuts that will help you achieve a look you’re comfortable with. If you like to up-cycle or recycle there are some really great tips included.
LIKE WHAT YOU'RE READING?
This book is very image heavy (as you’d expect) so there’s very little text. But the few words there are, successfully combine to evoke a very chilled, serene ‘read’.
If you’re a fan of:
- shabby chic
- relaxed, unconventional spaces
- doing it yourself
