Creating a home that brings joy is the ultimate motivation for interior design. Laurie believes that if you embrace the idea that your home reflects your soul, you can't go wrong in your decorating choices. In this, her first decorating book, the popular designer from TLC's hit series Trading Spaces invites you to join her on an exciting journey--designing a home that nurtures you and your family. Using her own home renovation as an example, she walks you through the process, from evaluting the architectural style of your home to planning furniture arrangement, choosing fabrics, and layering accessories and color. Laurie's approach to interior design combines classical training at the New York School of Interior Design with her own heartfelt commitment to inspiration as the starting point for creating soul-satisfying, livable rooms.
