- Everyday Magic for a Colourful Life
Our Founder & Creative Director, Charlotte, has made it her mission
to bring humor, more colors and more happiness to everyday life.
“Colors are essential to me - I truly believe in the power of colors and my hope with Happy Home is to motivate you into making bold color choices… Just paint a wall - play with colors and live colorful lives.”
Happy Home is a visual celebration of colourful, comfortable and casual living. A beautiful demonstration of the RICE ethos, this book shows how its warm and caring, fun and funky aesthetic can be applied in your own home. It is brimming with practical advice and useful ideas that show how to transform rooms with minimum fuss, but maximum enjoyment. Living spaces, kitchens and dining areas, bedrooms and bathrooms, children's rooms and outdoor areas - all are given the RICE treatment.
Checklists give practical tips on everything from transforming your kitchen to brilliant ideas for storage. Happy Home Makes are fast and fun to do, and will bring a real sense of personality to your home - including door decorations, adding fabric trims and motifs to lampshades and stools and some novel and quirky ideas for table settings. You will be inspired to experiment with colour and pattern on many different scales all around your home.
Danish design is not all about cool and calm interiors. RICE style is about fun, colour, pattern and the enjoyment of informal living. The book features RICE style applied to a variety of homes, from a contemporary Copenhagen apartment to a simple country retreat, a comfortable family home to an ultra modern studio space.
Happy Home: Everyday Magic For A Colourful Home by Charlotte Hedeman Gueniau is published by Jacqui Small. The books foreword is by the American best selling author, freelance journalist and interiors stylist Holly Becker who is author of Decorate and founder of the interior blog decor8blog.com.
