I love her books. She always gives me food for thought. I try to take away two new ideas a book otherwise I would be overwhelmed.

It took me a long time to read this book, as the author encourages you to write a journal as you go. I cannot throw in with all the fluffery in here, but over all, a great think-through-things read. Now, I have to go and read the book I wrote in the meantime. :)

Pretty picture books about houses, whether interior design or architecture, are one of my weaknesses. I simply cannot walk past one on the New shelf at the library without checking it out. And yet the text usually makes me crazy.

Lots of good ideas for decorating your home, especially needed for a decorating impaired person like myself. Enjoyable read.

I used to love her books, but I think I've maybe outgrown them.

Very inspirational. Stoddard has her heart in the right place and makes lots of good points about making a home THE place you want to be. Really enjoyed all the quotes in the margins of every page. Down side (as with her other books) is lack of organization. Not well edited in the structure of the book. But worth reading, nonetheless.

Seems similar to Daring to Be Yourself - but a good reminder of how one needs to work on making their house a home.
