I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!!!
I love that Karen Lehrman Bloch guides us away from the home interiors as a means of making a statement - of telling the world about who we are.
In her own words: "Decorating for display can surely provide a sense of gratification - one that needs to be continually reinforced with new, bigger, "better" items. But it's a fleeting, superficial gratification. Seeing your home as a source of inspiration means filling it with pieces you want to keep for a lifetime. And you don't need a grand budget to find these pieces. In fact, limited resources often inspire the most beautiful and creative interior design: every item is chosen with care and from the heart."
Instead of creating a "show place" home we create a self affirming home - removing interior design from the textbook and creating a living work of art.
A truly inspiring book!
May you enjoy creating an inspired home - and a home that inspires this year!
