Inspiring Home Books You Need to Order

These three books helped me so much on my decor/design journey. If you’re needing home inspiration, these are your books to order. ? ?? I’ve chosen this selection of books because they’ve either explained, taught or inspired me and I think they’ll do the same for you!

If you have one and not the others, well here’s you a little late Spring read! I hope they inspire you the same way they inspired me!

Simple Decorating

This book is small but powerful! Simple Decorating has 50 tips any home could use. You will learn so much! It goes from how to select curtains to a list of items every home needs. If you’re a homemaker, I strongly suggest you order this $10.47 book from Amazon.

Simple Decorating is all about making you and your family feel comfortable at home. Despite my family being a small family of two, I want our home to share our story and be comfortable. ? ? Simple Decorating explains how to do that and so much more!

A Touch of Farmhouse Charm

This is my go to book. It is the farmhouse style DIY encyclopedia. A Touch of Farmhouse Charm has small projects you can whip out in 30 minutes as well as larger projects. The Author, Liz Fourez, gives an estimate of the time each project will take and so far she’s been right on each one I’ve tried! ?

I did several of these DIY projects at the end of last year and 5 months later I still find myself flipping through this book looking for more!! A Touch of Farmhouse Charm is great for those of us on a budget! ?  Okay,  I would talk about this book forever… moving on!!

The Magnolia Story
So much about the The Magnolia Story spoke to me. No doubt, Joanna has a relationship with God.

Alright time to get personal –  I read this book during the fall of last year. I was in a rut personally. ??‍♀️ I was frustrated with our home (that’s a complete blog for another day) and I was discouraged with my at the time very, very, very small vintage booth, Classic. ? Something about The The Magnolia Story spoke to me to be happy where I am at the moment and enjoy the journey.

Even today when I feel myself becoming frustrated (it’s not always easy being married to an entrepreneur ? ?), I think back to the The Magnolia Story and remember to enjoy the journey.

This book is rich with inspiration. No doubt, you will walk away inspired to keep pushing and trust God no matter where you are in life.

These books are all very different from one another but each one is so good!! I truly encourage you to read these even if you just start with one and work your way through the list!

    Thank you for the recommendations, I already have a touch of farmhouse charm. I would totally get the others two. I think the Magnolia Story no only helps in the journey of decor, business etc. But helps in the journey of life, having faith in God & faith in His purpose… keep enjoining your ride 🙂
