Overview

Home decorating is more than window treatments and color schemes. Bringing soul into a personal space is important, too. Blending time-honored design principles with Western mythology and folklore, interior designer Laurine Morrison Meyer shows readers how to transform their home into a sanctuary for body, mind, and spirit.

Sacred Home presents an overview of Western religious and folk traditions regarding home protection, purification, and sanctity. Learn about protective household deities, sacred symbols, and the origination of common household myths. Discover the special significance of the horseshoe and other common household talismans. This guidebook also explains the four archetypal design styles and how to combine them with the reader's unique style to create a space that nourishes the soul.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Meyer, an interior designer for more than 20 years, has written a book that attempts to find a kind of Western equivalent for the practice of feng shui, the artful arrangement of houses and their properties for maximum benefit and good luck. Not surprisingly, then, her book informs readers of the best methods for "bringing soul into your personal space" through four archetypal design styles based on the four ancient elements (earth, air, fire, water). While her book is not for the skeptic or the conservative Christian, it is fluently and sensibly written and should be of strong interest to New Age or neopagan readers.
