This book – Kirstie’s Homemade Home – is available to buy from Amazon or you could ask at the local library if they have a copy. It looks quite a good book to sit and read if you enjoyed her TV series on which it is based.
Kirstie’s Homemade Home
It will guide you through the different crafts and ideas as well as giving you information about each room in your house. When you read that Kirstie thinks a kitchen is all about “food and entertaining” you might be tempted to stop reading, but if you want to make some kitch things for your home you should carry on. Vintage is huge and learning basic skills that our grandparents took for granted such as knitting and sewing should be encouraged.
This book will whet your appetite for finding out more about different crafts – so you might prefer to go to a more indepth book on the areas you’re interested in. Again the local library is worth a look for these. Whilst you might love having a book of pictures of the lovely Kirstie Allsopp in your house you might find it a bit too twee and decide that she had as much stuff crafted for her as by her. The TV series will almost certainly still be being shown somewhere on the globe. You can watch Kirstie’s Homeade Home on 4OD
My recommendation? Bookmark this page, go watch a few episodes and if you enjoy the TV show then buy the book.
