I’m usually being asked to advocate inside books, which is why I’m so excited to be invited to take part in the weblog tour for Maker Spaces by blogger, photographer, mother and maker Emily Quinton.

Described as a ‘visual feast of concepts for dwelling styling and decor from inspiring makers and designers’ the e-book covers everything from an excellent-stylish East London studio to a San Fancisco house.
