A book that inspired me to make room in the corner of the shower for a small seashell and polished rock collection--just to bring nature in. A book to cozy up your home and make it soulful and truly yours. A few words and phrases from the text that I've chosen to give you the idea: "wholeness, nourish, sacredness, reconnecting, renewal, primal craving for home, inspires our dreams, transformed." Full of truly beautiful photographs--color and black & white.
The "how to's" of creating serene and peaceful harmanonies within each room of the house. The information contained within these pages helps to open one's vision to the hidden possibilities of each room. Hardback. Excellent condition.

Helpful Score: 2
And unfortunately, I found it very disappointing. I will admit that I was more in the market for a design guide, but this is more of a thought guide -- ways to THINK about your home that will make it a more enjoyable place to live. Yet, the end of each section goes into extremely specific detail (down to measurements!) about the author's "ideal" room of that type (kitchen, bedroom, gathering room). The change was both jarring and off-putting for me.
"Anthony Lawlor's invaluable new book, A Home For the Soul, is that rare work that is at once transcendent and practical. A beautifully crafted guide, it reveals myriad pathways for making havens of our homes and rituals of our daily tasks. Most vitally, Lawlor shows us room by room, object by object, how we might make a soulful poetry of our everyday lives." -Paul Cousineau, author of Soul
