My Review

I have a lot of coloring books, and while I love most of them, this one holds a really special place in my heart.  It’s such a cute, whimsical book with home inspired illustrations that are heartwarming and relaxing to color.  I have found myself spending plenty of hours coloring in this book already (many of them focused on one picture, honestly), and I love every illustration in here.

This book was also the book I used to test out my new Prismacolor colored pencils (I got the 150 count set), and I’ve been loving how well they lay down color and blend (as opposed to the Crayola colored pencils I was using before), so I’ve been having fun just playing around with a lot of different things in this book, and it’s been a blast so far.

HSH flowers

Some of the pictures in this book are pretty intricate, but some of them are simply cute, ranging from flowerpots, to birds, to food.  It’s all simply stunning, and the images are familiar and calming.  I love how nice and sturdy the pages feel – the paper is thick, and I can see using gel pens or maybe even markers in here without much of a problem.  The illustrations are printed on both sides of the paper, but since it’s pretty high quality, it shouldn’t be much of an issue.  The pages in the book are also perforated, so that you can tear them out with ease and frame them if you want to.  The book also lies nice and flat when pressed down, so you don’t have to worry about having a difficult time getting to those designs that are close to the spine of the book.  And did I mention that you can color the cover?  I love coloring books that have covers like this!

HSH bird

There are a lot of floral designs, as well as birds, in this book…so if you like to color birds and flowers, this is a great one to try out.  This is probably one of my favorites (if not my absolute favorite) coloring books that I have gotten so far, and I know that I’m going to spend hours getting rid of stress and enjoying the different illustrations in here. There are other coloring books by the same illustrator that I look forward to checking out in the future as well, I loved this one so much!

Whether you’re new to coloring or you’ve been looking for some new coloring books to add to your collection, you really can’t go wrong with this one!

Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
