Book review: Prefab Houses


As you might know, I have a thing with prefab homes. Always have. I love the idea of a cleverly designed home, fit for a contemporary lifestyle, put up in a matter of weeks, sometimes even days. You can imagine how thrilled I was when I got this marvellous Taschen Book ‘Prefab Homes’ as a gift from friends. I am helping them with a design and install for a new bathroom and I recently had my birthday but still out of the blue they surprised me with this marvellous gift.The book is written by Arnt Cobbers and Oliver Jahn, two well-known architecture and design authors. I can highly recommend it. It’s the perfect coffee table book, with tons and tons of inspiring pictures and stories about various prefab home designs and their designers.

Nate Berkus collection for Calico


By now you all should know I have a bit of a crush on Nate Berkus. I love his work, and he is very easy on the eye. So is his collection for American fabric company Calico

The Nate Berkus Fabric Collection is inspired by Nate’s many travels and his own life.

“Your home should tell your story. Memories framed on a wall. What you love within easy reach. Fabric is one of the best ways I know to layer your rooms with the color and patterns you love most. Wether one yard for a pillow or ten for a chair, let the pattern you love be what you live with” – Nate

Calico is organising a contest on facebook where you can win his book The Things That Matter. I suggest you join, but if you don’t win, you can always buy the book in the Homevoyeurs Webshop!

Candice Olson book


Candice Olson on Design: Inspiration and Ideas for Your Home

In an earlier post I wrote about the lovely Candice Olson and her TV show Divine Design. She has published a book in which she shares design secrets and some of her best projects. Her fresh and easy approach to design and decorating show that with a bit of imagination, flair and patience, anyone can create their dream home. Her book features several dramatic before and after photographs of make-overs. Sidebars show easy to use tips and references to materials and products.
