While most home-design books focus on walls, paint, color, and furniture, they often omit the most important element of all: you. Alexandra Stoddard walks you through your own rooms, leading you on a journey toward self-attunement and self-expression. She helps you define who you are by asking important questions such as What room do you like the most? Which objects speak to you?

Feeling at Home helps you understand both your practical needs and your yearnings. You'll discover creative yet easily executed ideas for transforming your home into an environment that suits your lifestyle and energizes and nurtures you. With Alexandra Stoddard's expert advice and your own newfound insight, you can make your home your emotional center, where every object and room answers your needs and lifts your spirit.
