Chronicle Books sent me a review copy of Jennifer Paganelli’s new book, Happy Home. Before I could even open it, my seven-year-old grabbed it and ran away with it. She loved the fancy frills of Jennifer’s last book, Girl’s World, so she was excited to get her itty bitty hands on this one. This book brings more of Jennifer’s bright and cheerful patterns to home goods, sewing projects and crafts. From curtains, to pillows, to baskets covered in flowers, this book has the feel of a Fancy Nancy story come to life.
My daughter has been getting some ideas for updating her room from the book. There’s a very pretty box pleated dust ruffle and an idea for a canopy that we may use. And of course, there’s no shortage of hot pink in the book, my daughter’s favorite color. If you are a girly-girl, or if you know one, you must buy this book. And Jennifer’s beautiful fabrics too.
