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.

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!
I find it lifts my spirits on a day of gloomy weather and an accompanying cup of tea adds the perfect atmosphere. Enjoy it soon!

I tone down some of the numbers to suit 2013 but not her style... she is timeless in my opinion. :)Published on February 13, 2013 by Tanya Laporte
