Mad About the House - Planner: Your Home, Your Story

Renovation guidebook and planner in one, from the UK’s No.1 interiors blog

Interiors expert Kate Watson-Smyth presents the perfect renovation manual and planner to give a second life to homes in need of a change. With more and more people working from home and spending more time in the house, it is more important than ever to have homes that are adaptable and welcoming. Packed with Kate’s sage advice and enthusiasm, chapters are clearly split by room for easier planning, with a focus on sustainability and money-saving tips. Also included are accounts pages to keep track of finances; an address book for useful contacts; checklists for all the essentials in each room; grid pages to draw floorplans; and space to jot down favorite shops, inspiration, and websites.

Beautifully packaged with ribbon markers and gold foil page edges, this is a journal to treasure and keep a record of your home's journey.
