It’s hard to believe she had time to put together a book, but in between her TV roles on The Block and Selling Houses Australia – Shaynna Blaze released a beautiful DIY publication called Design Your Home.
She tells Deborah that the idea for the book came about after many years of teaching design to students and realising how limited their knowledge was when it came to the basic rules of renovating.
“If you wanna know from scratch what to do and where to go in terms of renovating and things to think about, you’ve covered it all!” Deborah loves this book. “I wanted people to really know the basic rules – the bones, the structure, how you’re going to live in a space… we get caught up on the visual and we get lost in where to put everything.”
Shaynna guides you through a room-by-room tour of a house, identifies problem areas but also suggests innovative solutions and alternative designs. “As an interior designer, I’m here not just to make your home pretty but to solve problems and find solutions. Your home is about you, your life, and those you invite into your space. With this book, you’ll have the confidence to design a home that functions around the way you live.”
