Owl Buntings and Afghans: The Perfect Crochet Home Decor
From an eye-catching afghan of hexagonal motifs to an owl bunting and apple-slice coasters, Brett Bara's newest book has the perfect home decor pieces to add a touch of crochet to your home. Many of the quick and easy patterns also make ideal house warming gifts. I see several I want to make for friends who love the handmade look of crochet but have yet to pick up a hook. Here is Brett to tell you more about Crochet At Home.
Crochet At Home
Nothing makes a house more like a home than filling it with your own personal touches-and what better way to do that than with crochet? Even if you don't have a ton of time to dedicate to yarn and hook, a few well—chosen handmade accessories will go a long way toward personalizing your abode.
What's more, handstitched home accents are the perfect way to freshen p your existing décor if it's gotten a little tired; they also add tons of life to basic, inexpensive pieces. Go ahead and buy that boring sofa you find on sale, because all you need are a few crocheted throw pillows or one stellar afghan to make it look like a million bucks.
When it comes to livening up your home, there's nothing more important than color. Whether you want to add a bold pop to an all-white room or are simply seeking to create and environment that's a quiet, soothing retreat, color is the secret to making it all happen. To that end, this book is all about combining clever color choices with your crocheted accents, for end results that pack a ton of punch with little effort.
If you've ever felt stumped by choosing colors for a project (and who among us hasn't?), this book is full of tips and tricks to help you navigate the world of color with ease. In no time, you'll learn to develop your own eye for color. Once you combine that with your crochet skills, you'll be an unstoppable creative force!
It was my sincere pleasure to work with some of the very best crochet designers in the industry on this book, and I think you'll love seeing many of your favorite names throughout these pages. Our team of designers created a truly inspiring collection of gorgeous projects that run the gamut from sophisticated to silly, and everything in-between. Whether you want to deck out your kitchen, bedroom, or living room, and whether you're into wild color or subdued hues—we've got it all in these pages.
So grab your hook and get ready to be inspired to transform your home with color and crochet!
