Redfern House Publishing has just launched Nest Building ~ A Guide To Finding Your Inner Interior Designer, written by Kate Bridger and illustrated by Chris Rohrmoser.

Bridger is a Nelson fabric artist, design consultant and columnist. Her new book offers readers a refreshing look at design and the evolution of home from their personal perspectives.

“Before we can create optimal living and working spaces we need to understand where we have come from, why we like what we like, where our strengths and our limits lie and how to express what ‘being at home’ really means to each of us as self-directed and unique individuals,” says Bridger.

Nest Building is a light but provocative read, sprinkled with simple exercises, amusing anecdotes and pragmatic insights.

It offers inspiration to nest builders of all ages and stages seeking to find their personal styles and voices by creating living and working spaces that nurture, reflect and inspire them.

Bridger’s underlying premise is that “Home is a state of being, not a state of having” making this a timely book that delivers a simple and fundamental message about human nature and the collective need to belong… somewhere.

However, this is not a tome that takes itself too seriously. The illustrations supporting the text are entertaining and the tongue-in-cheek glossary of “designer-babble” at the back of the book should bring a smile to your face.

Nest Building ~ A Guide To Finding Your Inner Interior Designer is available at bookshops and fine interior décor stores or contact Redfern House Publishing (redfernhouse.ca) directly.
