I have read all of the books listed below expect Domino (I plan to read it this summer). Each of these books gave me the tools to create a home that I love and is unique to me and my family. You can learn just about anything you want by reading a Best Behind the Scenes Home Design Books for Newbies, and learning to decorate a home is no different.
If you just bought your first home, are renting or building, it will pay off in time, energy and money to know your style and to create a home that brings you and your family joy and function. These books are full of practical advice and great storytelling. As I read these books I came to realize that creating our homes is a combination of design knowledge, heart and attention to detail. Even if you get a designer to help you, it is so good to know what you like and don’t like. Here is a link to my advice about finding your style.
My hope for you is that you can have a stylish home full of love, joy and peace. My hope is to add my upcoming book to this line-up and add even more value to those who love their home and family.
