Now with Jill’s new book we will all share the simple steps to recreating the spaces around us. Her clean, crisp approach to design and use of color comes through on every page. Let Jill inspire you to look at your personal spaces with a new eye. This book makes an easy transition from old to new. I felt like I could do some of these creative changes with the things I had available in my home already. You will love every page."

Though I've always believed in Jill's principle of "the artistic journey to expressing yourself through your home," her new book unclutters that journey with wonderful, inspiring signposts and goals that gives each of us permission, no matter our age or circumstance, to create a nest that is unique, reaffirming and truly deserving of who we are and what we might become! Could be she has convinced me I am finally ready to build that shack in the woods I've wanted all my life!
--Mary Randolph Carter, author, For the Love of Old
Jill Butler has a way of leading the reader right on through the emotions of the design process without pulling any punches while showing how important our houses are to self-image. There's a lot here for architects and designers to use and to keep in mind.”
Michael J. Crosbie, author, architect, critic, and head of the Department of Architecture at the University of Hartford
"Create the Space You Deserve is a self portrait of an artist's personal evolution through the reconstruction of her home. As coaches, it's impressive to see how Jill utilizes her education to create a profile of her journey from one transition to another in full creative and artistic expression. She has a lot to reveal and will keep the reader thoroughly entertained."
