perfectly_imperfect_homeStyle is a luxury, and luxury is simply what makes you happy.
Over the years, design expert Deborah Needleman has seen all kinds of rooms, with all kinds of furnishings. Her conclusion: It’s not hard to create a relaxed, stylish, and comfortable home. Just a few well-considered items can completely change the feel of your space, and The Perfectly Imperfect Home reveals them all.





In a nutshell:

I liked it:  Yes    

For people who like: Interior design, home decor, home makeovers

My thoughts: 

This is a great book if you would like to know more about how to decorate your home in a livable way. The book is divided into chapters like for example

  • Nice lighting
  • Places for chatting
  • Cozifications
  • Bath as a room
  • Delicious scent which deal with one aspect of living in various sub-chapters. 

All topics are accompanied by very nice  illustrations. Those images give you an idea of how to do it but don’t force you to think you have to re-create a specific setting like you do when you see a photograph.

Each chapter gives you additional historical information (for example about what entries were used for in the 18th century) or explanations to the various types of sofas, lampshades or tables. Did you know, for example, what a Bridgewater sofa looks like? Well, I didn’t.

Interspersed there are quotes about living and little side notes with how-tos, style tips, nice to know tidbits and so on. 

It is a fabulous book to either look through whenever you feel like getting some inspiration, when you need a solution for a specific design problem or when you just want to get some new ideas how you could improve your space of living.
