Remake Restyle Reuse: Easy Ways to Transform Everyday Basics Into Inspired Design

Sonia Lucano, Author, Fred Lucano, Photographer Watson-Guptill Publications $19.95 (144p) ISBN 978-0-8230-9842-2
Parisian designer Lucano gives crafters over 40 options for tasteful, contemporary updates to everyday items in this easy-to-reproduce collection. After a quick overview of basic techniques such as embroidery, dyeing and engraving, Lucano offers a number of projects for each, ranging from engraved wine glasses and vases to embroidered sheets and artwork. Emphasizing a minimalist approach, Lucano adds simple designs and/or phrases to modify existing materials, be it a curtain, carafe, plate or clay pot. All DIYers need to replicate her creations is access to a copier to make life-size reproductions of the patterns and images. The stark black and white style of her collection will not appeal to everyone, but those with an eye for the contemporary will appreciate her style as well as the cohesiveness of the collection.
