The Story of Your Home
A Room-by-Room Guide to Designing with Purpose and Personality
Create a space you'll love (that everyone can live with)
Your home is where you make memories, build relationships, and find sanctuary, so it should tell your story. Full of practical action items and bursting with unique and inspiring photos, The Story of Your Home is your guide to creating a space that reflects the personality and purpose of the people who live there.
With the help of interior designer Courtney Warren and her StyleSense Design Quiz, you'll start by determining the heart behind your home and the story you want to tell through it. She'll guide you through your house, one room at a time, providing tools to stretch you beyond mere aesthetics to the true essence of how you live and what you want your home to say--both to the people who live in it and those you invite in.
With Courtney's expert help, the inviting and comfortable home you long for is closer than you think.
