introductory words to each type of room Recommended for fellow Jojo fans.Meaningful Passage I m a homebody There s really no other way to say it The world can feel overwhelming with its pace and noise, its chaos and expectations Home for me is like the eye of a hurricane There s a certain calm I experience there no matter what is swirling about on the outside Home is where I feel safe, it s the place where I am most known and most loved If you were to ask my family, I m pretty sure they would tell you the same thing about themselves there is nowhere they would rather be than home I think it s because our story is all around us there When you walk in, you begin to see and experience the journey of us Our home is layered with family photos, artwork, and objects that weren t chosen simply to make a design statement, but rather to tell the story of who lives there I believe that what we surround ourselves with the colors, the materials, the things, can be random and meaningless or they can convey some of the most important truths if we let them flag 25 likesLike see review View 2 comments Nov 04, 2018 Danni rated it really liked it I wish there had been how and not just

Homebody A Guide to Creating Spaces You Never Want to Leave is that we shouldn t decorate just to fit everything within a certain style Rather, our homes should be reflections of the needs and personalities of those who live there.Throughout this book, you ll notice a theme of telling your story within your home What I mean is that I want you to approach the design of your home with intention, to surround yourself with items that mean something to you, and choose furnishings and details that make you happy or inspired or content p 8.Intentionality with a dose of creativity goes much further than money and flawless taste when it comes to making a house a home p 9.The book is laid out simply and practically First Joanna discusses some introductory thoughts Then she gives a brief description of several styles farmhouse, modern, rustic, industrial, traditional, and boho In a sense these are all modern styles, or modern interpretations.Then Joanna gives even brief summaries of each of the homes she ll be sharing pictures of I noticed that all of them are a blend of two or three styles no one decorated everywhere in a house within any one style Of that eclectic tendency, Joanna says, I believe that a gathered approach is essential to creating spaces that are a true representation of you and the people who share your home p 13.Then a chapter is devoted to each room in the house First Joanna shares thoughts on how her philosophy of design for each room developed over the years Then she lists what to consider in each room how it will be used, special considerations, etc , shows several pictures from a various homes and comments on salient points, and finishes with a couple of pages about troubleshooting the particular design issues in each room In addition to the usual rooms living room, kitchen, etc , she has a chapter devoted to entryways, kid spaces, rooms to retreat, and utility spaces.She mentions that utility spaces laundry, pantry, etc are often neglected, but since we spend so much time in them, it pays to brighten them up a bit I can testify to that This is the first house we ve lived in where there was a nice laundry room, and the first time I ve put a bit of art on the walls nothing expensive a cross stitched picture my sister made, a framed calendar page, a Hobby Lobby clearance piece, etc It makes a lot of difference to have that area pleasant to be in.I also liked her thought that in kids rooms, Rather than focusing on literal interpretations of a theme, decor and furnishings are incorporated in a way that will age with the children p 249 In one example, a little girl loved rainbows But instead of painting an actual rainbow on the wall, a rainbow effect was suggested by a gradation of soft colors on the walls and a wall hanging My own personal thought here there s nothing wrong with painting an actual rainbow or whatever if a child wants that It s likely the room will need to be painted again or her tastes will change sometime before she moves out, anyway But I did like this idea of the effect of something rather than a literal interpretation A few other quotes Though what s on the inside matters most tending to the outside has a pretty profound effect on how we feel on the inside p 33.Functionality doesn t need to be sacrificed to make a space feel inviting p 35.I realized that I had let the pursuit of perfection inform how I designed this space instead of the people who were actually supposed to be enjoying life in it p 55.The book ends with a design template and suggestions for the process of how to design a particular room.We don t watch too many HGTV shows as we don t get that channel, and watching it online can be a little wonky sometimes we re limited in what we can see But of the few shows we have watched, I like Joanna s style and touch the best Yet, her style is not my style What seems clean and minimal to her seems a little barren to me I don t like the horizontal lines of shiplap and subway tiles I cringe at the thought of open shelving I fight dust even in closed cabinets I can t fathom adding dusting open shelving to my regular tasks I got tired of the mostly black and white palette in the book s illustrations But that s ok, because she s not advocating that everyone follow her style Her main point is that every home will look different as it s adapted to its occupants I love her philosophy and many of the practical tips she shared All in all, I enjoyed the book very much flag 1 likeLike see review Dec 29, 2018 Michael rated it liked it
