Home Stories: Design Ideas for Making a House a Home
Kim Leggett’s ﬁrst book, City Farmhouse Style, was a big hit. Now Kim is back with the welcoming interiors her fans crave and a no-rules approach that is all about using what you love to create rooms that tell your personal story.
Everyone has a story worth telling, and every room can become part of that story—whether you decorate it with heirlooms, ﬂea market ﬁnds, simple mementos, or a mix. In Home Stories, Leggett shows readers how to use all these treasures to design very special rooms ﬁlled with interest and meaning.
She begins by asking readers what it is that attracts them to a certain piece: “Thinking hard about what really speaks to you, and then using it as the basis for design, is the secret behind all of the best, most interesting rooms.”
Each chapter presents fascinating spaces and the stories behind the accessories, furnishings, and mementos that ﬁll them. There are plenty of projects, too, plus practical design guidance and design inspiration for refreshing decor as the seasons change.
