MAKE YOUR OWN DECO BOOKS

In This pile of magazines are most of my favorite decoration mags. This is one of my passion to buy these type of magazines, reading them but I do something more with them and it's fun.

Few times a year I take all my magazines, go them through and take everything out that interest me... It can an atmosphere, scenery, colour, image of the room, accessories, paint effects or even articles about DIY, etc...Sometimes it takes half of the day to do all these but it can be fun on the rainy day...

So to make your deco books you need a pair of scissors, plenty glue and visual diary books, the big ones are better than the A4 size, you can have a really nice collage on your pages...

Buy several visual diaries and make you books by theme, I have made for example a book for any kind of paint effects and colours, rustic chic, country style, then you can just assemble on one or two pages different bath rooms, bed rooms, kitchens etc and add different pictures of accessories that goes with these pictures.
This is really fun, creative and it is also relaxing...Collect your own dream house or houses...

L O I S T A V A idea, KIITOS!! Mun heikkous on myös erimaalaiset sisustuslehdet, ja niitä onkin kasautunut vaikka kuinka iso määrä. Aina kun näen jotain kivaa tai mielenkiintoista, merkkaan sen sivun hiirenkorvalla .... mut enhän mä sit enään muista että mitäs olikaan missäkin lehdessä.

Mielessä on jo kauan käynyt tehdä niille jotain, erityisesti mua kiinnostaa tehdä itselleni "vision board".

Tästä sun postauksesta mä sainkin loistavia ideoita ja pikku potkun takalistoon että hommiin Nona :).

What in interesting idea. I usually cut out the pages and fold them up in a drawer. Then I usually forget about them for a while. I think I will take your advice and paste them into diaries.
