Overview

Seventy-two step-by-step projects for modern do-it-yourself home and office design, by world-renowned designer Todd Oldham.

Love the look of mid-century, modern, retro design, but don't feel like dropping two weeks' pay on an Eames chair? Todd Oldham shares his passion for mid-century modern homes with over 72 do-it-yourself projects for anyone who loves crafts and longs to add character to every corner of their home.

Each project is charted through step-by-step photos and instructions until the fabulously mod end. Other projects include home-computer face-lifts, Xerox wallpaper, aluminium lighting fixtures, and cosy shoe-storage systems. In additional to Todd's brilliantly engineered projects, the book comes complete with a tutorial on modern home design in the form of sidebars and short essays throughout -everything from that now-famous Eames chair to the case-study houses of the 1950s.

Handmade Modern promises to revolutionise the way the reader looks at his or her own home and capacity to beautify a space. Chic, accessible, and fun, this is the achievable new look of modern home design.

A modern twist

TV personality and designer guru Todd Oldham shares his expertise and flair for refurbishing in Handmade Modern: Mid-Century Inspired Projects for Your Home. Oldham's book is a celebration of "nesting" and encourages homeowners to update their living spaces in the modernist tradition. Complete with information on major modernist architects and designers of the 20th century, Handmade Modern is as much a reference book as it is a how-to manual. Oldham includes a helpful list of "tool box basics" and provides step-by-step instructions for each project. With beautiful photographs of each room, Oldham gives do-it-yourselfers the opportunity to update individual pieces or revitalize an entire home.
