Creative Ideas From Stylist Sania Pell

London-based stylist and author Sania Pell rocks my world. She has become a good friend of mine and I am lucky enough to get lots of Sania time whenever I’m in London for crafting, shopping, chatting, eating and visits to other lovely friends along the way, like our recent visit with Emma Cassi that she so nicely arranged. I first met Ms. Pell online, thanks to my book review of her debut title, The Homemade Home, and shortly thereafter we met for dinner in London and it’s been a great friendship ever since that lovely evening over a year ago now. TGFB! Thank Goodness For Blogging!

Sania Pell

I’m so excited that in the Spring, her next lovely book will release, The Homemade Home For Children, though it is now ready to pre-order (yeah!). It focuses primarily on crafting for and with your children but even non-parents like me will buy the book and apply the 50 projects to things in my own home or use it for ideas to share with friends who have kids. Sania is nothing short of pure inspiration (magic!) to me and to her many fans.

You also have to visit her blog, At Home, because there she shares her own photography and many amazing projects that she posts each week. I love her recent posts on adding hand-painted fluorescent touches to flowers (brilliant!), hand crafting clay ornaments, and this gorgeous artistic panel she made using sheer fabric, some leather, thread and fabric.

What an amazing lady, do visit her and also pre-order her book because trust me… You will love it! I’ve seen a bulk of the projects in it (she showed them to me as she was making them for the book) and you are in for a huge treat. If you think her blog is amazing, the book will blow your mind.

    Dear Holly,
    I´ve seen the Xmas decoration made by Sania today on the Brigitte website and I really love it. I´m going to try and make something like that myself. And thank you for the book recommendation. I´m already looking forward to the children´s book.
    Viele Grüße

    I love Sania Pell! Thanks so much for introducing us to her b/c she has totally helped refresh my creative juices in the past year, no lie. She’s like an accessible, fresher Martha Stewart and I love that her projects don’t make me feel like I need to spends lots of money on supplies or be a psycho perfectionist to ‘get it right’. Her projects are so personable and I really can’t wait to see the new book!

    I’m a big fan of the decorated branches! I did that last year for Christmas with glass vintage bulbs. I took some funky looking branches from around my yard a few years ago and painted them in silver tones and have them arranged in an old milk jug. It works year round and then at Christmas I get to deck them out!

    I’ll have to check this book out for sure! I woman with a knack for twigs is A-ok in my book ;-)

    I can’t wait for the book! I was just saying to myself this morning that Sania’s style is so “me”. And…then peeked at your blog…and you were writing about her again! I adore Sania’s first book… and love the simplicity and yet elegance of her style ~ What a treat to be able to view her blog/work and become inspired over and over and over again…

    You’re right! TGFB! I made some really good friends online first and then we met up. Sania’s book looks wonderful.
    I love doing creative things with Mila. It’s very relaxing for me and we get to have some quality maman/daughter time doing something fun together. I’ll get the book

    Have a lovely weekend Holly!
