Do-it-yourself décor inspired by iconic patterns, classic fabrics, sentimental items, and the Americana style.
Designer Max Humphrey gives every reader confidence to create their own stylish digs using things they collect, buy, inherit, or dumpster-dive for. Americana design elements that can fuel personal decorating styles from classic American country to urban lofts and everything in between.
Photos and personal anecdotes highlight collectibles and DIY-ables from Max’s design and styling portfolio—such as such as bandana wallpaper, botanical prints, bunk beds, clocks, old maps, gingham and plaid everything, Pendleton blankets, camp vibes, and vintage signs.
The book features casual to custom and higher end furnishings and includes design elements from a range of Humphrey’s interior design projects from East to West Coast.
