The Nest Home Design Handbook

Hi everyone! Hope all you fellow Aussies had an enjoyable Australia Day yesterday. After an early morning walk, ours was spent mostly pottering around the house and ended with a quiet barbecue for tea.

Today I thought I'd share with you the book in the photo above which I am reading at the moment. This one is another loan from my local library and it is packed with gorgeous images of interiors along with decorating principles and ideas to help you in creating stylish and comfortable living spaces in your own home. Carly Roney, the author of this book, is also the editor in chief of the website which you can check out here. Below is a lovely office space from the book...

Visit Vic's blog here to see what other people have been reading lately.


  1. Oh, nice!

    Another book to add to my wishlist... I'll have to visit this... "Library" of which you and many others speak so highly...! ;)

    Thanks for playing this week!

  2. Hi Amanda:) That looks like a gorgeous book. I love the home office it seems really peaceful (must be the white I guess). I would love a home office like that, especially as Uni starts again next week and my office is the couch :( Thanks for sharing the book and also for the links, I am off to check them both out:) Have a lovely evening - T xx

  3. I must have a look in that book - sounds like it will be full of fabulous ideas! x

  4. Hi Amanda, that looks like a great book! That office space is lovely. I've never thought of checking my local library for design books, I'll have to go see if they have any! Janette x

  5. That book looks lovely. I love that office space.:-)

  6. Hi Amanda, we had a pretty quiet Aus Day as well -it was nice though.
    The next book and website look really interesting. I reckon I could spend quite a bit of time there and get some good ideas.
    Hope the rest of your week is great! :)
    PS thanks for your lovely comments - I really appreciate them!

  7. Hi Amanda, we had a quiet Aus Day here also.

    That book looks great - must reserve it at the library. Thanks for sharing the office pic - I can add it to my office inspiration folder!


  8. Thanks for all the comments - I love going to the library and picking a stack of books to flick my way through.

  9. Hi Amanda,
    That looks like a great book, I will have a look for it! My office could use a makeover... or I would be happy to swap it for the one in the pic!
    Glad you had a nice Aussie day, thanks for all your sweet comments, I love them...

  10. I got that book for our friends who just got married, and had a hard time not looking through it first myself...

  11. Alli Michelle - what a great idea for a wedding gift! Will have to remember that one myself :)

  12. I absolutely love this book I look at it all the time. In fact it was one of the first things I blogged about!
