Product Details


“[Kristin Nicholas’] thirtysomething patterns feature color washing and stenciling, other painting gigs, knitting, crochet, and ceramics, all with intricate directions and upfront notations about pattern, style, repeat, and techniques. Don’t skip to the designs. Start at the very beginning, where she shares insights on patterns and combinations.”—Booklist (starred review)

“From knitting and embroidery to painting, stamping, even DIYing your own ceramic tiles, Nicholas provides the intel and encouragement you need to color your world with patterns.”—Vogue Knitting

“Master crafter and color authority Kristin Nicholas’ third book takes you on a tour of her home in Western Massachusetts, a working sheep farm she’s relentlessly decorated over the more than 20 years she’s lived there. With an introduction to patterns and color, the book details instructions for 35 home décor projects. Even if you are not ready to take on a project, her fearless approach to decorating is inspirational. Nicholas’s methods run the gamut: embroidery, knitting, crocheting, stamping, and painting. In Nicholas’s home, nothing is off-limits”—Design New England

“This is a lavishly illustrated guide to how to cram a profusion of pattern into a bright and harmonious home, through DIY projects.”—Mason Dixon Knitting 

“As the pendulum of home décor trends moves away from minimalism and back to color and pattern, Nicholas is the cheerful, inspiring guide to maximalism we all need.”—Library Journal 

“Crafting a Patterned Home
 has lessons, tips, and endless amounts of inspiration for projects that will personalize your living spaces. This book is perfect for crafters who want their surroundings to reflect their true selves. We’re not saying you need to start hand-painting your walls (even though we bet you’d do so beautifully), but smaller objects like napkins and plates can add that personal, crafted touch to your space.”—Knitting Daily
