    1. First of all this is a BEAUTIFUL book to browse through – the photographs are outstanding and beyond inviting. Go deeper and Melissa does not disappoint. Better than her blog, Melissa inspires and guides you to create a thoughtful personal home.

      I would certainly recommend this book to beginning homemakers. As well as more seasoned homeowners looking to refresh their home or tweak it by looking at each room with fresh eyes and embellishing what you have using Missa’s fantabulous tips. She thoroughly explains her thought process behind each tip.

      Great book – this is a winner and would enhance any coffee table – just leave it out and browse through it when you’re having one of those days when you need a pick me up for your home.

      Thank you Melissa !!!!!!!

    2. I am changing my review from 3 to 5 stars because I LOVE it! I adore the The Inspired Room blog and Melissa Michaels first book, so I ordered this as gifts for the holidays. I didn’t receive quite the wow factor I was hoping for, so I ordered it for myself to give a review based on my own opinion. The book arrived yesterday and I spent all last night reading it front to back. It was carefully written and with a lot of warmth and helpful/creative ideas that take years to learn! I loved the simple DIY’s tucked here and there within it. The pages of decor are truly inspiring! I don’t regret purchasing this as gifts over the holidays and decided to order another for a co-workers house warming gift!

    3. This book by Melissa Michaels does not disappoint. The photographs are beautiful, and the multitude of topics she covers is astounding. The almost two hundred page book, in coffee table book size is just such a great how-to book with lots of inspiration. Having enjoyed and appreciated her first book,I was not let down when I received this, her second but hopefully not last piece of work.

    4. Melissa Michaels is inspiring. Someone suggested her first book to me when I had just moved into “new built” house & I was longing for the home I had lived in for 35 yrs. It really helped me see I could transform my new house into a home that was me. (I’m still working on it). I am a 67 yr. old grandmother who followed the fly lady years ago. Much of what Melissa writes about is not new to me but I sure needed to be reminded that the soul of my home resides within me.

    5. If you’re on the fence on this one, buy anything from this author. I’m not sure it inspired my rooms yet but the writing is like eating honeyed toast, it is full of content, and it makes you feel good to read it. Love it. Thinking of buying a physical copy.

    6. I love this book since it is not only about decorating, but creating a home with intention, not just filling it up with pretty objects and calling it done. It will help you find your way to create the interiors you always wanted, no matter what your budget or DIY skills are. Melissa shares her own home as a backdrop as she guides and inspires you with DIY projects, bulleted lists of inspiring ideas and beautifully photographed rooms that will spark your creativity, and encourage you to use what you already own in new and creative ways that will make your house truly a home you will love for a long time.

    7. SERIOUSLY helpful book. After reading just one chapter I transformed my entryway (which doesn’t really exist, but now I realize it does, thanks to Melissa!) into a beautifully warm and welcoming space. I recommend this to anyone who wants functional, beautiful help but doesn’t know where to start or have much experience with it!

    8. So delighted I bought this book. Melissa has a special way of making decorating —– for which I have NO talent!— a joy! It’s a simple and enjoyable approach that no one has ever taught me. I’ve had several decorators come to my house, and although they were very good, they talked me out of things that I wanted because it wasn’t ‘how it’s usually done’. Melissa works within the basic design elements, but elaborates on how you can modify anything to fit your taste. I love how she emphasizes how your home should be your sanctuary. Your safe and peaceful place. And that the journey to getting that place is part of the joy!.
