In the BNOTP Library: A Home of Your Own

Today I thought I’d share a book that’s probably not that well-known. I noticed this evening that it’s been out about a year but still doesn’t have any reviews on Amazon. Not sure why because I really like it and think it’s a great book.

It was the cover that drew me to A Home of Your Own. I loved the entry and staircase shown on the dust jacket. Speaking of  dust jackets, this is one of those books that still has the same beautiful cover when the dust jacket is removed. Love that!

3 Things I Like About This Book:

  •  Enjoy the premise behind this book which encourages the reader to not be afraid to make their home their own by decorating and displaying the treasures, collectibles, etc… that reflect who they really are and what they truly love.
  • Lots of pictures
  • A great resource of ideas for displaying collections, art and just about anything you might collect or own. There are lots of examples and pictures throughout the book of collections displayed in an interesting or artful way.
