Novel Interiors is a book about Living in Enchanted Rooms inspired by Literature. I really enjoyed reading this book and looking through all the images that accompanied it. One of the techniques that I liked was turning your bathroom into a scrapbook by putting lots of photos all around – and you could easily change them out whenever you wanted to. I always think that you should put the best pictures in your bathroom because that is the room most of your guests will definitely end up seeing! Other things in the book I enjoyed were the sections that gave you decorating lessons based on the books – like using graffiti in rooms inspired by Alice In Wonderland and the DIY sections with things you could do in your own home. The end of the book features the books that inspired the rooms featured in Novel Interiors.
This book was a lot larger than I expected but you kind of needed it to be bigger so you could see the detail of the beautiful rooms featured in the book.
I received a free copy of this book from the Blogging For Books program in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
