Deeper than the average interior decorating book,
This review is from: Apartment Therapy: The Eight-Step Home Cure (Paperback)
I had never really thought about the different types of people and how they are able or not able to decorate a home to their liking. It's interesting to think about the ways that our homes reflect problems in life, or even be the cause those problems. This book is inspiring not just for changing a home, but also for changing ones way of life.
Maxwell definitely developed his methodology while tailoring to somewhat high-end style, but I feel like it also caters to the budget DIY type as well. I'm not a fan of retail therapy as a way to fix your life, and am more encouraged by the information about de-cluttering and getting to the heart of what makes your life a joyful one, and making your home a means to that end. For example, making your space awesome for entertaining so you can invite friends over and be more social.
