If you are thinking of remodeling your home or want practical hands-on decorating advice, then explore what Joanna Gaines has to offer in her first design book, Home Body: A Guide to Creating Spaces You Never Want to Leave.
Gaines, who is best known for her show, HGTV’s Fixer Upper, has produced more than a great looking coffee table book. It’s filled with stories, insights and troubleshooting tips from her two-decade career as a designer and remodeler. (You don’t have to be a fan of her farmhouse chic design to get ideas for your own home or develop your unique style.)
The book is designed to be a comprehensive guide to help you figure out how to create a home that’s truly you, reflecting your family’s personality, quirks and priorities. She covers characteristics of six foundational styles from traditional to Boho and uses examples from 22 actual house designs (including her own) to guide you in creating a home that speaks to you and your heart.
There’s a grid template for you to sketch designs, and I highly recommend reading this cover to cover—even the photo captions feature ideas!
