"Restoration House"

Book Description from the publisher:

Rediscover the heart of your home and your story.
Home is meant to be a place to belong. A place to gather and connect. A place of beauty. A place to restore your soul. Creating a restored home—the kind that you and your loved ones want to return to again and again—is as much about making everyone who enters feel cared for and comfortable as it is about creating a beautiful space.
In Restoration House, home decor and lifestyle guide Kennesha Buycks of Restoration House blog shows you how to embrace your home and your story as you create mindful spaces that give life to you, your loved ones, and all who enter.
With gorgeous photography and pages of practical tips for curating and decorating your home (even on a small budget) and welcoming others, Restoration House will help you make purposeful design decisions as you create renewing spaces for you to enjoy with family and friends.
Whether you live in your dream house or you’re still dreaming about it, you can feel at home in the home you have.

My Review:
First of all, this is a gorgeous hardcover book that will look beautiful sitting on a coffee table, as it is so inviting looking!  Then once you open it, you see that the pages are filled with so many more soothing, beautiful pictures among the text.  This is so much more though than a book just filled with pictures to inspire your d├ęcor, this is filled with personal feedback and tips for making a house a home and encouragement and ideas to help the reader do the same.  Kennesha shares her story, her story of healing and really feeling alive in her home and making it a solace, a place that really gives her life and connection while within as well as others who come to the house.  I really enjoyed reading about her home and the journey she took to get to where she is at now, the stage that her home is at and the steps to get there.  I love how this touches on everything about a home and while it is broad at times, there are other parts that are very specific.  This is an excellent book to look through and read and find ideas and inspiration from.
