Overview

A house may be exquisitely built and perfectly decorated, but if it doesn't mirror the characters of the people that live within its walls, it's merely a showpiece without a soul. Yet if a house reflects the passions of its owners, and if it embraces family and friends alike with comforting sights, fragrances, sounds, and textures, it becomes a sanctuary from the world outside-and it truly feels like a peaceful home. Whether you love the fine handcrafted furnishings of the Arts and Crafts style or prefer the relaxed comfort of inviting cottage rooms, the stunning photographs and inspiring ideas in Creating the Peaceful Home will help you design your own tranquil and beautiful home. In chapters such as "Mirroring Nature through Texture and Pattern" and "Personalizing Your Rooms with Sacred Treasures," you will find:

  • Sidebars on such "Peaceful Pleasures" as creating clutter-free spaces and transforming a room with color
  • Suggestions for using elements from a variety of styles to create "Serene Decors" for every room
  • Traditions from cultures that celebrate tranquillity and spirituality in the home
