Annotation 1 In Sunshine Spaces, designer Beci Orpin show us how to make and create a range of fun homewares and other fabulous ideas for your outdoor space, including outdoor entertaining as well as how to bring a little of the outdoors inside your home! Inspired by the color and beauty of nature, projects include planter pots and hanging pots, picnic blanket and outdoor cushions, hammock and swing, sun umbrella and many more. Beci also includes advice on the best indoor plants and their care, some great pots to put them in, flower arranging and natural art installations, as well as a complete guide to plant-based fabric dying.

Chapters also include Party and Play with inspired ideas for an outdoor moonlit dinner party with lanterns, flower crowns and table decorations, and for the kids there is a play tent and cubby, pet rocks and a sun dial. Using a range of easily accessible materials including wood, flowers and plants, fabric, rope and string, concrete and some recycled products, Beci shows you everything you need to know about bringing the sunshine into your life and home.

PW Reviews 2017 March #1

Designer Orpin (Home) shines DIY ideas on readers in her fourth book of crafts, which concentrates on outdoor projects. She describes how to make concrete planters, a macramé chair, cushions, and a sun-brella. She throws two picnics, one for youngsters and one for grown-ups, for which she offers decorating directions for making paper crystals, flower crowns, table collages, and a roll-up blanket. She ends with outdoor play in a hiding space or with a jump rope. Judging by the final products, Orpin's projects seem complex or highly technical, but they are surprisingly simple to produce with basic tools such as a handsaw (for the jump rope) and a sewing machine (for a hammock). Templates are included for the chair and the crystals. Her breezy style of writing includes nods to other artisans, and the many pictures either clarify directions or simply offer soothing, sunny moments. (Apr.)
