We took an inspiring nature filled trip around the Eden Project in Cornwall last month. After discovering plants, flowers and creatures from around the world, we got crafty and made a lightbulb terrarium inspired by our trip, so we could take a little piece of Eden home with us.

We chat to Natalia Price-Cabrera, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to make a flaming juno lampshade.
Hello. My name is Natalia Price-Cabrera and I am the founder of Mols & Tati-Lois, purveyor of hand-tailored lampshades and upstyled furniture (www.molsandtatilois.com). I have always been a 'maker' since an early age and studied Textiles & Fashion, followed by History of Art at university before pursuing a career in illustrated book publishing for going on 20 years now. Three years ago I discovered traditional lampshade making and have been hooked ever since. I create bold, contemporary soft-sided lampshades using a combination of vintage and modern fabrics, to create truly unique lighting statements for the home. All my lampshades are made using traditional techniques. 'Handmade Lampshades' is my second book. I am also author and curator of the hugely successful 'The Wallpaper Colouring Book', published by Octopus.
Cat from The Rustic Willow recreates the stylish home of Lauren Conrad for #DIYTheRoom
Lauren Conrad exudes feminism, so when I was designing her living room, I knew that I wanted to incorporate that. I wanted it to be light, bright and airy with a lot of white and a lot of floral accents. I think all of the projects I rounded up fit that description, and would all complement each other together perfectly in her living room!
My name's Taryn (commonly known as 'taryndraws'), I'm a self taught artist from Colorado. I'm currently working as a freelance illustrator.
When I’m not drawing, I like to read, play video games, watch movies, and obsess over my fandoms.
