I really enjoyed this book, and I actually READ it! It's not just pretty pictures. Well written and engaging stories. Highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys design or is looking for some inspiration.

Much more than a decorating book....Gates shares her life with us, including her painful teen experiences with anorexia and BDD. Interesting insights about how the home tells the story of your life journey. Along with lots of practical ideas for decorating on the cheap!
