Join interiors author Kate Watson-Smyth as we celebrate the launch of her new book: Mad About the House Planner. Hosted by Anthropologie, Kate will be joined by design, interiors and lifestyle writer Becky Sunshine as they discuss all things renovation, sustainability and money-savvy tips.


Interiors expert Kate Watson-Smyth brings you the Mad About the House Planner for everything you need to know when renovating your home. With more and more of us working from home and spending more time in the house, it’s more important than ever that our homes are adaptable and welcoming. Packed with Kate’s knowledge and enthusiasm, this journal offers you ways to renovate your home room by room, with a focus on sustainability and money-saving tips.

Also included in this handy planner are accounts pages to note down what you’re spending money on – and when – as you renovate. It also contains an address book for useful contacts and tradesmen, checklists for all the essentials in each room, grid pages to draw your own floorplans and space to jot down your favourite shops, inspiration and websites. Beautifully packaged with ribbon markers, this is a journal to treasure and keep a record of your home’s journey.

Her home has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, la Repubblica, Elle Decoration, Livingetc and Remodelista.
