Experience magical shifts in your life by redesigning your living space.
Home can be a space to explore your sense of self, a message board to cue your aspirational goals, and a story where you choose which parts of your past to put down and which to carry. In Find Yourself at Home, design journalist and interiors consultant Emily Grosvenor introduces her five steps to align your home to suit your purpose and your path:
PHILOSOPHY: Connect with the mystery and power of your home
SPACE: Prepare your environment for your story
BUILD: Discover design tools to cue your behavior
DESIRE: Bring your aspirations into your space
DESTINY: Take your purpose into the world
Drawing on ancient wisdom and modern science, along with examples from Grosvenor's groundbreaking research and work with clients, Find Yourself at Home is a philosophical and practical guide to making spatial shifts that will help you cultivate a more meaningful life by shaping your space so it shapes you back.
GREAT GIFT FOR HOME DÉCOR MAKEOVER AND FENG SHUI FANS: This is a great gift for people who are looking to rejuvenate their homes, and for those who love home makeover shows, marathoning HGTV shows, and bringing spiritualism and philosophy into their daily lives.
A FRESH TAKE ON HOME DESIGN: Many of us have decluttered, home-edited our pantries, tried minimalism, made our homes hygge, and chosen things that 'sparked joy.' Now it's time to shape our homes to reflect who we want to be and our purpose, to make every room align with the behaviors we want to create. This is for readers who are recognizing that our homes have become more than places to rest: they are places for mystery, self-discovery, and empowerment.
FOR READERS WORKING FROM HOME/STARTING NEW CAREERS: For many of us, our homes are now also our offices. This is the perfect guide for anyone wanting to bring more of their aspirations, such as focus, creativity, and purpose, into their workspaces.
