Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Here, Engelbreit shares the philosophy she follows in life: "It's your house and it should be filled with the things and the colors that make you feel good." Rather than writing a step-by-step decorating book following the basic rules, the author offers a multitude of creative ideas using color illustrations with minimal text. This fun, whimsical book covers many different areas of the house-kitchens, fireplaces, children's rooms, windows, walls and pictures, and more. Recommended as an accessory to basic home decorating collections.

MARY ENGELBREIT'S HOME COMPANION is a delightful book filled with her charming illustrations and beautifully decorated rooms.
If you're a fan of ME than you'll really enjoy this book. The photographs are good and the book is chock full of uniquely decorated rooms. I honestly have to say that almost every room has something in it that I would like to incorporate into my own home.
There are fifteen chapters and at the end of each a "project" is presented with instructions called "Watch ME Make It." Some of these are: A Tea Towel Pillow, Hand-Painted Picture Frame, and Birdhouse Bookends. Most of the projects seem to be fairly simple to do. To be honest, I don't usually do projects, but I'm very tempted to try to make several of these.
I loved looking at how "various collections" are incorporated into the styles of the different rooms. I'm a bit of a collector myself, and it was a treat for me to notice that some items that I have from my own collections are featured in the pictures.
It may sound odd to say this about a book on decorating, but I found HOME COMPANION to be very uplifting and a joy to read. I think I could live in this book!

ME is an inspiration to all of us who love her style without the fuss. Her ideas for the home are simple to obtain and cost very little. I have shared this book with many of my friends, and they too are now hooked.

I used some of the ideas shown in the book to redecorate my daughter's bedroom. Only have one bad thing to say about this book... Once you start redecorating it becomes habit forming and you start branching out into the other rooms....!! YIKES!

If you enjoy Mary's illustrations and want to see lots of them, as well as get decorating ideas, then you will probably enjoy this book. While I love the photos of actual rooms and collections, there aren't enough of them. Instead there are too many of the drawings, which can be overwhelmingly cutesy if you're not in the mood.
