WOW! Seriously the design book i have been dying for!
May 5, 2021
Equal parts beautiful and practical I love love loved this book. The book has what all the best design books have, beautiful pictures of awesome spaces. But where this book is really special and differentiated is that it actually breaks down those spaces showing how the designers at Havenly achieved those looks. It presents a number of “style recipes” (done in a gorgeous watercolor) that show you the components of how to achieve them, it includes awesome sections like how to choose a sofa or even different ways to arrange throw pillows on a bed. Throughout the book the authors take real budgets into consideration (which I appreciated) and even go as far as suggesting things like sofa slipcovers for people who could not afford to buy a new sectional. However, that doesn’t mean the spaces are not absolutely stunning. The section on where to save and where to splurge was especially helpful in showing how these incredible spaces were created on realistic budgets. I also really liked the sections that broke down different design styles (and how to get the look) and how to think through the more technical components of design like relative proportion in sofas, how to hang lighting etc. This is everything I would want a design book to be. Deeply inspirational, amazing practical and written in a way that had me smiling (also, please note, I ACTUALLY read this book and didn’t just look at the beautiful picture and then stick it on a shelf). An awesome addition to any collections. Don’t judge me for the fact it might be sitting on a crate next to my craig’s list couch – a girl’s gotta dream!
Pleasant book, overhyped on practicality
September 15, 2021
The one practical, excellent section was on rugs – size, fibers, placement. There is a budget list suggestion for several levels of $ investment. There was a list of “favorite places to shop” that might be of use to someone. I was hoping for suggestions on room furniture placement, dealing with existing home features, what to do with what one has “shop your own closet” for example. The word “Practical” in the title lured me, but alas, failed in my estimation to deliver much of that. Photos and watercolor prints are attractive.
Too academic in its approach…where’s the fun?
December 6, 2021
I was very excited to get this book, but when it arrived, I was very disappointed when I began to dig into it. First, the text is teeny tiny, and the photos are few and far between. Interior Design is such a fun, visual, and tactile subject, I would have really liked to have seen more space on the pages with text and photos blended in more creatively. almost like a storyboard or mood board look and feel. I felt like I was reading a textbook and that was not what I had in mind when I purchased this book. I struggled to get through it then finally gave up bc it felt very flat in tone and like work and not inspiring or visually stimulating in the least bit. I guess the search continues for the perfect interior design book of my dreams! This will be going back.
Practical tips and tricks to make your home look great (and feel like you!)
May 8, 2021
I just moved into a new space, and have been looking for home design books and practical tips on how to pull everything together. Design the Home You Love did not disappoint. Every space I’ve decorated to date has looked “okay” but there’s always something that feels a little off, or not quite like me. This book has been a gamechanger in terms of laying out all of the practical tips and tricks that I need to know to make my space actually feel like home. For example, how to think about scale and proportion (hint, err on the side of your rug being larger than you’d first think, which opens up the room), how to mix and match different colors, and even where to splurge vs. save on different items. I’ve already started following the practical advice laid out in this book, and cannot wait to see how everything comes together. I do feel more confident in my ability to decorate my home and the final outcome, and can’t wait to revisit this book in years to come.

You WILL want to read this coffee table book! 10/10
May 5, 2021
I love coffee table books, specifically around home design. This also means that I have collected many a coffee table book over the years! Many of them are beautiful, inspirational, but often more so aspirational. This book, ‘Design The Home You Love’ is not only so beautiful but incredibly informative for the everyday real person. I love that this book combines real photographs of spaces, advice on how to achieve different design styles as well was simple tips to update your space all on your own (oh also – really cute illustrations throughout) – could that combo be any more swoon-worthy?
Gone are the days of beautiful home design that’s completely out of reach! Love, love, love.
Perfect mix of Inspiration & Practical Advice
May 7, 2021
This book is beautiful as a decorative accent on my coffee table, but even better it’s full of useful information and inspiring designs. It’s great to just flip through for visual inspiration, but it’s also full of actually useful tips around discovering personal style to where to spend money in your home and how to style different surfaces as well. A lot of other design books I have are beautiful but the homes feel really out of reach. This is different. Still beautiful, but it feels like I can actually translate ideas into my own home. This is a book I will be gifting to friends and family who appreciate design and want to spruce up their spaces.

A Must Read
June 16, 2021
I was looking for the perfect coffee table book and came across this gem! I literally received the book yesterday and read through Part 1 (approximately 109 pages)! The book contains 3 parts beginning with the Foundation, The Style Breakdown, and Styling. An added bonus for me is how I love that the author grew up in the Washington DC metro area, where I currently live too.
This is not just your ordinary book with designer photos that you place on the table! Well, it does meet the designer photo criteria (haha) but also serves as a functional book that you can easily read and apply the concepts to your own home and style. The author further showcases each concept with beautiful visuals such as full-page pictures serving as the perfect coffee table book for guests. Last but not least, this book was published in 2021 so it introduces current furniture and interior design trends. Definitely recommend for the aspiring interior home designer and decorator!
