Wish you could make your home beautiful? Wondering how you can make your home clutter-free and lovely, like the ones you see on TV? Meet this new book, Home Made Lovely.
Home Made Lovely is a different kind of decorating book. It isn’t just about decorating your home; it’s about decorating your heart. Decorator and designer Shannon Acheson advises us to consider that as we remake our homes, we should consider who we are doing this for, and why. It’s easy to look at what we see on TV and social media, and make comparisons as to how beautiful these homes look. As we might try to measure up or see that we don’t, our motivation should be carefully considered. In summary, our homes should serve us and the people around us. While we want our homes to be beautiful, the function of loving others through our homes should be kept at the forefront of our minds.
She doesn’t recommend having a dull place – quite the contrary! Acheson offers up lots of ideas of how to rejuvenate your living spaces, and many of these ideas are budget friendly. The glossy pages of this book offer realistic ideas of how to be hospitable through all seasons of life. Acheson knows that clutter is a thing, and she doesn’t push for an unrealistic standard of perfection. She keeps it real and encourages women to just strive for something, whatever will work for them.
I am excited to see that, with my non-existent cooking skills, this book has some recipes that might actually work for me… I was not expecting to see this in a book about decorating. Home Made Lovely is a comprehensive guide for how to turn any home into a haven, and I highly recommend it.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
