Book Review : Flea Market Fabulous

 Designing Gorgeous Rooms with Vintage Treasures

Focusing on nine different rooms (including her own recently purchased Manhattan apartment), Lara Spencer shows readers that all it takes is planning, shopping know-how, and a little imagination to create beautiful and comfortable homes that reflect their personal style. She takes readers through the step-by-step process of overcoming the challenges of the room, offering helpful tips and lessons along the way. She identi­fies the design dilemma; comes up with a decorat­ing plan; makes a mood board for inspiration; compiles a shopping list; scours flea markets for furniture and accessories that fit the bill; restores, repurposes, and reinvents the pieces she finds, giving them new life; and brings all the elements together in the gorgeous, finished space. With illuminating before, during, and after photographs of her DIY projects and the room installations, Lara demystifies the decorating process and allows readers to envision endless possibilities for what they can do in their own homes.

From my Local Library Collection:

Got my “Flea market fabulous” book today from the Library and I just LOVE it !!! Beautiful book inside and out. It is packed FULL of so many pictures and ideas. I have been a big “Trash to Treasures” girl for a long time and I thought I had great ideas for repurposing things but even I got lots of new ideas from Lara’ s rooms. Lara does a wonderful job trying to inspire people to look at things a different way. Your home should be your comfortable haven and a reflection of its owner. Don’t be afraid to give your space some personality,. So check it out today at you local library …

Today is National Recycling Day – have books you no longer want. Donate to your local Library or nursing home or your old books into something new….
