A wonderful hospitality and lifestyle book that will give you a myriad of ideas to create a welcoming, comfortable and cozy living space not only for guests but for your entire home. Each chapter contains lovely colour photographs, quotes, drawings and thought snippets from the author's notebook with simple ideas how to create and offer the warmth and welcome of your own home for guests, but more importantly, for yourself! If you are seeking a fun and informative guide to create your own special space, this book is written such as a personal design journal, full of great photos, creative fonts, intriguing vignettes and wonderfully easy suggestions to implement. I enjoyed this small, coffee table type book so much, I purchased a copy for my own book collection.
