Today’s young women are smarter, more creative, and more independent than ever before. But even though sushi has pushed meatloaf aside and wine tastings have replaced Tupperware parties, home is still where the heart is. Whether alone or with friends, spending time in a place that truly reflects who you are can be rewarding, relaxing, even exhilarating—it’s up to you. Sanctuary, soiree space or just a special place to get crafty—with this inventive and cost- conscious guide for the modern girl, you can create an environment that is truly “you.” Try:

• Colorwashing and stenciling an accent wall
• Growing an indoor herb garden
• Creating a home spa, complete with homemade treats for body and mind
• Putting together a one-of-a-kind scrapbook
• Throwing a retro game night, a Stitch ‘n’ Bitch, or a not-quite-proper English tea

From the paint on the walls to the parties you throw, No Place Like Home provides creative inspiration no matter where you live or what your style.
