In Homebody: A Guide to Creating Spaces You Never Want to Leave, Joanna Gaines walks you through how to create a home that reflects the personalities and stories of the people who live there. Using examples from her own farmhouse as well as a range of other homes, this comprehensive guide will help you assess your priorities and instincts, as well as your likes and dislikes, with practical steps for navigating and embracing your authentic design style. Room by room, Homebody gives you an in-depth look at how these styles are implemented as well as how to blend the looks you're drawn to in order to create spaces that feel distinctly yours. A removable design template at the back of the book offers a step-by-step guide to planning and sketching out your own design plans. The insight shared in Homebody will instill in you the confidence to thoughtfully create spaces you never want to leave.

Beautiful styles of homes showcased. I wish she would have shown smaller home dwellings and rooms, though. Many of our own entryways are tiny and most of us don't have bedroom-sized laundry rooms. :( That being said, I really like the index at the back of the book where you can find your style on the pages and flip back through them. Not all pages are marked though. There's also a design page at the back to photocopy & design your own room. I enjoyed finding my 3 styles of home!

Nice! But not my style at all I felt it would be better if she covers more than one style

The gorgeous, full-page photographs provide tons of inspiration. There are also tips on finding and developing your favorite styles in your own home. While known for shiplap and farmhouse style, the book incorprates a variety of styles that many readers will enjoy.

Earthy tones throughout if that's your style! Plenty of pics for inspiration.

I enjoyed the ideas brought out in this book, plus I'm from Waco Texas so it all just adds to the greatness of the book!
