Warning: Happy Home is an explosion of colors. Enter at your own risk!
Seriously though, if you love Jennifer Paganelli's style, I don't see why this book won't be a favorite. There is an overload of amazing hues and patterns. The palette is bright, bold, happy and festive. The 21 projects are designed to help you transform your home into a vivid, happy space filled with cute, pretty and girly accessories. There are tutorials for ruffle pillows, fabric-covered boxes, bags, a basket, a bed cover, a bed skirt and a quilt. Additionally, there are projects to dress up your home for parties, like banners, garlands and pom-pom poufs. With some finished projects from the book, I can imagine throwing cheery bashes in a welcoming environment - and in glorious technicolor.
I like the book's design and photography. The instructions step-by-step, accompanied by a few diagrams. I would have preferred more diagrams or photos to illustrate the tutorials, which are heavily text-based. But the projects are not too difficult and some easy enough for beginners who will find the introductory chapter on basics of sewing techniques useful. There are pattern sheets attached.
Overall, this is a prettily put together book. The projects are not unusual but the fabrics are a treat and draw in themselves. Even if I didn't sew, I'd probably still have feasted on the kaleidoscope of colors and patterns.
