The Bookshelf: “Away At Home” By Jason GrantAuthor:Michelle Konstantinovsky
Ever notice how that blissed out, post-vacation feeling seems to dissipate the second you step foot in your home and reality hits? If designer Mr. Jason Grant has his way, you’ll never have to lose that serene vibe again with the help of his new book, Away At Home.
Grant is all about transforming living spaces into sanctuaries, and Away At Home gives readers the rundown on how to create their own personal retreats.
Drawing inspiration from road trips, chic hotels, beach houses, and more, the Sydney-based designer gives readers all the tools they need to translate the joy and calm of occasional getaways into everyday life.
A few major ways to infuse your surroundings with a sense of escapism? According to Grant, natural materials, soft fabrics, and organic shapes go a long way. He also guides readers on choosing a proper color palette, upcycling secondhand items, and bringing the beauty of the great outdoors inside.
Grant is no newbie to the publishing world. His first book, A Place Called Home, hit shelves just over a year ago and the renowned interior stylist is aiming to duplicate its success with his sophomore guide.
Hoping to glean some home décor wisdom from the man himself? Catch Grant at one of several stops on his April book tour:
