I guarantee that Joanna will be the face of Generation Rent when everyone reads her book
— Barbara Chandler, London Evening Standard

In response to its great success since its release in 2014, my first book Home for Now has now been reissued (Oct 2018), under the new title Insta Style for Your Living Space. Offering both inspirational and practical solutions to the ever-growing number of people struggling to get on, or move up, the property ladder, it shows that not being in your “forever” home needn’t be a barrier to transforming your house into a home: all that’s needed is a little creative thinking, outside of the box.

Featuring 15 stunning homes, most of which are rented or first-time-owned themselves, the book is broken down by area: Living Spaces, Kitchens, Dining, Bedrooms, Bathrooms, Creative Workspaces and Plants, Outdoor Living, and is packed with styling, craft and DIY tips to inspire both renters and renovators to try out the ideas themselves. Full step-by-step projects feature at the end of each chapter, specifically chosen with inexperienced DIY’ers in mind, whilst renters’ needs are more than taken into account, with landlord-friendly adaptations of many of its DIY and styling ideas.
