I've had the nice surprise to receive last weekend an email from super talented art director and stylist Hans Blomquist who mentioned the imminent release of his upcoming book, the Natural Home. No need to say that between the stylist's natural eye for beauty and Debi Treloar's immense photographic talent, they got me at the cover page.
Hans Blomquist was kind enough to share with us some pictures of The Natural Home, due for release on April 1, 2012 and available through most book retailers.

As Hans Blomquist puts it himself, "the book celebrates a home where style, through furniture and materials used, is very natural, celebrating vintage objects with patina that aged with time and use [...] The homes shown are furnished in a very spontaneous way... unplanned or un-staged, where the style and setting have evolved with time, where furniture and objects found their place, almost by accident. [...]". 

The Natural home is an ode to the "perfect-imperfect" look many of us try to achieve in our home, a look that instantly gives character to a space and clearly contrasts from a "showroom" or catalog home. Can't wait to add this one to my personal home decor book collection... Monsieur Blomquist, merci!

  1. The design of these spaces inspired me today, thanks!

    Big hugs!


  2. Oh, these are pretty spaces. I wanna see more... Thank you so much for sharing!

  3. I love it! I noticed the book is published by Ryland, Peters & Small, which puts out book after book with magical photography. Josephine Ryan's French Home is a favorite of mine from the same publisher.

  6. Thanks for the heads up! It's sounds like another great book in the line of Wabi Sabi. Of course I couldn't resist telling by readers about it. I posted it here http://wabisabi-style.blogspot.com
