Good job Joanna, it's not a book for the modern shinny minimalists prison/hospital style wannabe customer/designers , it's a book about what a home should be and a statement about the value of natural materials and the connection between us, the humans, and this planet, Earth. We tend to forget that we are a form of life that is forever connected with this planet and for us to be happy, we have to stay true to what mother Earth offered us long time ago: wood and stone and iron and clay and plants. And to call ourselves humans we also have to stay true to friendship, love, compassion, honesty, hard work, and truth. You showed us a very pleasant mix of how to put all these together and build a HOME FOR A FAMILY, not a prison of our vain desires. Thank you! I would've loved more stuff about the kitchen design but I am sure this it's coming very soon.
From the first page, I was engrossed reading Joanna's descriptions. From someone who is not an interior designer, I found this book to be exactly what I was looking for. Thank you Joanna for doing this! Thank you for all your hard work and straightforward direction, your book is easy to understand, you put forth ideas I can relate to, and a decorating philosophy I can work with. Sincerely, TM
Perfect for helping you figure out what is right for YOUR home. I feel like the show, Fixer Upper is all about the farmhouse style of decor but this book includes all types of homes (modern, traditional, etc.) Homebody reminds us that we can style a home to our liking by using things we already own that describe us rather than trying to chase a commercialized "perfectly decorated" home.
