Tahn Scoon is a designer and magazine stylist based in Brisbane.  Following on from her first book, New Vintage, Tahn has just released her second book The Thoughtful Home.  Tahn believes you don’t need a lot of money to put together a really gorgeous interior.  In The Thoughtful Home, Tahn includes plenty of insider tips on how to style and decorate your home, as well as affordable decorating tricks and some super easy how-to projects to make.

I was lucky to attend an author workshop for Tahn’s new book held at the beautiful Blake & Taylor store in Paddington (Brisbane).  During the presentation Tahn talked about her book and gave us some tips on affordable decorating.

After the talk Tahn chatted with the guests on the verandah where iced tea was served.  She was able to offer plenty of decorating tips and advice.

And of course, Tahn was happy to sign books that were purchased on the day.

What I really like about the book is that it is easy to read with beautiful photography of houses in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, and northern New South Wales.  The DIY projects are simple and easy to achieve, and she provides decorating tips for every room in the house.  As an added bonus there is a section at the back of the book all about flowers and how to arrange them beautifully.

Here is a little video snippet about the book that I filmed at Blake & Taylor.

The Thoughtful Home is available to purchase from Blake & Taylor in Brisbane, and they have some signed copies available.
