Home Tour: The Fabric of Home

These days the mere sight of open shelving sends me weak at the knees. Who knows what is it, but something about the effortless, relaxed style they create appeals to me. You'll understand, then, why I jumped for joy upon finding the wonderfully creative home of Constanca. Colourful, crafty and bubbling over with personality, Concha's British home is testament to her love of all things handmade, which you can read about in the about section of her blog. This tour of her space is filled with both easy, and useful, tips for using fabric around the home. From colour coordinated jam jar toppers to screens and chair backs, Concha really has crafted her home by hand. In fact, I think it's charming how coloured fabrics stored in glass-fronted cabinets have become the decorative accessories to her home. So, even before the fabrics are used, they are already a central part of her space.
