Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Alexander, a writer who specializes in natural health and holistic living, shows how to create a restful, energizing, and healthful environment in a way similar to Suzy Chiazzari's Healing Home (LJ 5/15/98), currently reissued in paperback. However, Alexander includes more detail about feng shui and a section on smudging (a Native American practice in which smoke from burning herbs is used to purify the air) and spirits for the home. Purchase if there is a continued interest in holistic, spiritual interior decorating. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
Booknews
Freelancers Alexander and Goffe show how to create a peaceful domicile through Feng Shui, Jungian psychology, tributes to goddesses and household spirits, Native American rituals, cleaning with natural products, aromatherapy, and a number of other methods that homeowners and designers might not have thought of (e.g., moving a sofa out of an abnormal energy field). Lovely photos showcase a variety of decorating styles. Oversize: 10.25x10.5<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
