Our homes have always been our castles, but today they need to be so much more than simply a roof over our heads. Home offices, workout studios, entertaining spaces, mental health sanctuaries and centres for self-care… the demands on our four walls are unprecedented. And now many more of us are renting than ever before – but that doesn’t mean we can’t make our homes into living environments that reflect our unique sense of style and bring joy to our everyday lives.

In Your Not-Forever Home, Katherine Ormerod has curated a range of projects for every room in a rented house or flat, guiding you through techniques and invaluable insights that will help create spaces tailored to your taste.

Katherine addresses why many of us are renting now for much longer, and provides reassuring guidance on how to approach alterations with your landlord – and, if you are new to DIY, Your Not-Forever Home offers projects for a range of skillsets, from entry-level to the more experienced, with Katherine sharing her own experiences along the way.

From scalloped shelving to making your own table linen, bed canopy or French bistro curtains, embrace the potential of your rental space with Your Not-Forever Home – an indispensable companion on your journey towards transforming your home into a haven of tasteful sophistication, whatever your circumstances.
