The Shopkeeper’s Home

The Shopkeeper's Home Cover Caroline Rowland

I’m really feeling the blogger vibes this week. So many of my creative pals have launched their first (and in some cases, second) book. The Shopkeeper’s Home is a brand new book, written and curated by Caroline Rowland, Editor of the digital publication magazine 91 Magazine and founder of Patchwork harmony. Caroline’s debut book focuses on the most intriguing and creatively interesting shops, created and developed by the shopkeepers. The book then delves into their personal homes, adding a sprinkle of inspiration to spark your creative flair. Littered with take-away-and-apply tips such as vintage decorating ideas to take home & cake shop decorating ideas to steal, there is an abundance of decorating ideas to explore. Travelling across the UK, the United States and the hidden nooks & crannies of Europe and down under, Caroline uncovers so many great spaces around the world. Like I said in my about page I did say that I love peeking into other people’s homes, looking at how they’ve styled it. This book definitely ticks that box. For example, Caroline explores German store Room to Dream owned by Sabine Staftherr. A space flooded with natural light, Room to Dream is full of Nordic design. Sabine’s home below is a gorgeous 1986 two-storey (duplex). The mix of textures and finishes are simple yet inviting.
