If Making A House Your Home hasn't found its way into your bookshelf yet, make room for it! It's a great book that is well worth the read if you've ever wanted to re-do your surroundings with ease. We've almost all been there at one point or another - visiting someone else's home, and realizing your own home just isn't the same. Their house seems to flow together and each room has its own unique theme or "feel". But a good sense of interior design doesn't have to be something you are born with, you can just as easily learn how to make your home the envy of everyone who comes to visit you.
Making A House Your Home is an interior design book by writer Clare Nolan and the book is becoming extremely popular, with online reviews or press excerpts just not cutting it when it comes to conveying how great the book really is.
You might already be into interior design and have a collection of home interior books and magazines. You may not care at all about home decor, and not put much thought into how things might work together. You just need to know that you like it, and you're good to go. It's a book for everyone, and it's not like other interior books. It's not calling on you to knock over walls or ask that you hire a professional designer. It puts emphasis on style and how you can custom-decorate your own house using paint, wallpaper, fabrics, possessions you already own and more. It's full of eye-candy with big, airy pictures (over 300 of them) but it also shows you how to save by using everyday finds to their full potential. Various chapters focus on things like making a chaotic room a calm one, working with what you already have and shopping without stress or too much added expense.
The ideas presented in Making A House Your Home - and it is full of them - are affordable and easily done even if you would consider yourself interior decor-challenged but can appreciate a beautiful room. The book is presented in such a way that you will be able to get the exact "feel" you want in your own home even if you don't quite know how to right now. It's not full of designs only for people who can afford them, and the author really makes interior design something that is approachable for the masses: those who have always been interested in interior design, and those who aren't quite sure what they think of it.
If you've just bought a new home or are ready for a change in your current home, this interior book is for you.
While other interior books might just provide you with countless ideas you might never accomplish, consider this book like a beginners' guide to interior decor that will actually have you seeing results in your own home - without hiring anyone! Making A House Your Home is as if you have an interior designer who is willing to share all of her secrets with you right there on your bookshelf.
