A Well-Crafted Home: Inspiration and 60 Projects for Personalizing Your Space

Remodelista: The Organized Home: Simple, Stylish Storage Ideas for All Over the House

It’s easy to feel discouraged and stuck while in the midst of making decor changes to your home, especially if you’re renting your space for the foreseeable future. For anyone who doesn’t have the freedom to re-tile their bathroom, paint their walls, or expand their living room, blogger Myquillyn Smith gives the much-needed encouragement and sage stylistic advice to help you see your space with new eyes.

If you live in a home with plentiful color, this tabletop tome is a study in simplifying your palette. Author and interior designer Celerie Kemble makes the case for grounding one’s home decor in monochromatic tones, to allow for more creativity when it comes to room textures, furniture design, and allowing the color that is used to pop with personality.

If you aspire to have the kind of home that looks like each piece was carefully selected by a personal decorator, the way to make that dream a reality is by seriously rethinking your storage solutions. This new book from the editors at Remodelista is a great resource for minimalists and maximalists alike, as it lets you apply their new rules of organization to your own living style. It’s less about starting from square one than it is about making your home as efficient and streamlined as possible.

Home design and home organization go pretty much hand in hand. There’s a multitude of ways to store your art and treasures as well as your less-attractive, but functional extras in the tidiest and most seamless way possible. This book teaches the art of aesthetically pleasing storage that flows beautifully with the rest of your home, instead of looking like an eyesore or an afterthought.

Lovable Livable Home: How to Add Beauty, Get Organized, and Make Your House Work for You

There’s something truly special about homes with a creative spirit. Designer and DIY expert Janet Crowley walks readers through 60 diverse decor projects (including a knotted rope ladder, an heirloom linen table runner, and even a simple-sewn hammock!) to add high-end style with a homespun touch to your home. Whether you’re a beginning crafter or are ready for something more challenging, this interior design book is chock-full of inspiration.

Black and White (and a Bit in Between): Timeless Interiors, Dramatic Accents, and Stylish Collections

Sometimes all you need is a quick refresh in order to start seeing your space in a whole new way — and it doesn’t need to cost a whole lot or be a huge time investment, either. Home design pro Sarah Richardson has packed this guidebook full of budget-friendly tips and tricks that she makes work beautifully for a diverse range of spaces.

Styling a beautiful space isn’t just about placing the furniture in the right spot or strategically hanging a piece of art. It’s more about the intangible elements, like the mood, the scent, and familiarity that makes it a special place where you’d want to spend your time. Interior designer and blogger Lauren Liess divides her thorough “field guide” for decorating beginners into three parts to help you consciously consider every room in your home and find the best ways to make it come alive.

What we love about this interior decor book is that each home featured belongs to a different (real!) person, showcasing a variety of styles from which to glean inspiration. Blogger Anne Sage’s personable prose highlights events in her subjects’ lives that have inspired these eclectic and beautiful spaces, because real homes can tell some pretty incredible stories.

The Nesting Place: It Doesn’t Have to Be Perfect to Be Beautiful

Flipping through a gorgeously photographed interior design book can certainly spark the interest in giving your own space a little revamp.

You can talk the talk when it comes to interior decorating, but once kids come along, that’s when the major changes begin in the home, and they don’t slow down for a while! Authors Sherry and John Petersik know all about this transition from personal experience as the parents of two children. The home becomes less reflective of the self, and more representational of the whole family — but that doesn’t mean aesthetic and personal flair have to go right out the door! Meeting at the intersection of style and function, this beloved blogging duo breaks down how to make the same home space adapt to accommodate the needs of your own growing family.

Make Yourself at Home: Design Your Space to Discover Your True Self

If there’s anyone who can actually turn all of their #decorgoals from Pinterest into reality, it’s Diane Keaton. In this interior design tome, the actress and prolific Pinner documents her process of gathering home inspiration from the site, honing in on her industrial-chic aesthetic, and working with architects and designers to build a brand-new 8,000-square-foot home from the ground up. The pages are also peppered with advice for refreshing and rethinking your own space, both indoors and out. Keaton’s method of home design may be divisive, but it makes for a compelling read.
