    5 Books to Help You Makeover Your Home 

    As we pack up the decorations and make room for new toys, it’s natural to take a hard look at the places where we spend the most time. Whether you’re itching to refresh your kitchen, need ideas on how to simplify, or just want to start from scratch and build your dream home, the books on this list will inspire you to get started. They’re packed with practical tips, beautiful photos, and even a few pep talks from people who have been right where you are now: hoping to transform a house into a home that feels totally and perfectly you!

    The Home Edit: A Guide to Organizing and Realizing Your House Goals, by Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin
    There’s no point to tossing another throw pillow on the couch or updating your gallery wall, if you’re frustrated every time you try to find something or your shelves are sagging with clutter. Before you can redesign, you need to reorganize, and this thorough guide will walk you through the entire process, including labeling your kitchen. The authors even promise to make it fun!

    Outer Order, Inner Calm: Declutter and Organize to Make More Room for Happiness, by Gretchen Rubin
    The popular author of The Happiness Project and Better than Before has a special way of articulating big ideas in easy to digest, memorable ways. In her latest book, she shares simple, practical ways everyone can use to make their homes feel a little more homey, so they can enjoy their time there more. The best part is the way Rubin offers different tips for different personality types, knowing there are no one-size-fits-all answers when it comes to something as big as decluttering. It’s a bit like hygge meets Marie Kondo, with the added bonus of learning something about yourself!

    The Minimalist Home: A Room-by-Room Guide to a Decluttered, Refocused Life, by Joshua Becker
    If you’re craving a minimalist lifestyle but aren’t sure how to get there, Becker is an experienced guide. He offers thoughtful and specific ways anyone can declutter their home. Along the way, he reminds readers why they’re embarking on this journey. The goal is to design a home that supports us in cultivating more productive and peaceful days. Keeping the focus on the purpose behind the trend will help you do the hard work of transforming your house—and your life.

    Homebody: A Guide to Creating Spaces You Never Want to Leave, by Joanna Gaines
    Designer Joanna Gaines has a keen understanding of what people want to find when they walk in the door. Combining clean lines, layered textures, warm touches, and personal details, Gaines shows you how to create a home that doesn’t just look like the houses she works on but feels like your own private sanctuary. Get familiar with your personal preferences, learn design basics, and even sketch your own plans. This book is made to guide you from fuzzy idea to fabulous reveal.

    The House That Pinterest Built, by Diane Keaton
    Deep blacks. Creamy whites. Wood beams. Brick walls. If you’ve ever swooned over an interior shot in a Diane Keaton rom com, you’re not alone. Even Diane Keaton herself looked to director Nancy Meyers—and of course, Pinterest!—when she decided to build a new home. She recorded her journey in this gorgeous coffee-table book. There are over 250 pages of visual inspiration, practical advice, and fantastical details that will have you eager to build your own dream home.

    What books will help guide you to makeover your home?

    How to Live Your Own Magnolia Story 

    “If only I could live in Waco…” If you’re like me, you come to this conclusion at the end of every episode of Fixer Upper. Thankfully, The Magnolia Story shows readers what life was like for Chip and Joanna Gaines before HGTV. Imagine sitting around the kitchen table, trading stories after dinner, and getting to hear how Chip and JoJo got engaged, what disasters turned out to be turning points in their lives, and grinning every time Chip says, “Now we’re rocking and rolling.” This book invites readers behind the scenes to get to know the couple a little better. Eager to live your own Magnolia life? Taking these steps might help bring some of that Fixer Upper magic to your business, family, and home:

    1. Start early. (In college, Chip had already become a serial entrepreneur, selling books, fireworks, and lawn services.)
    2. When in doubt, pick a theme and commit to it, whether it’s magnolia flowers, white subway tiles, or a vendor you love working with.
    3. Marry your opposite. Find someone who grounds you or someone who draws you out. Play off each other’s strengths.
    4. Go big. Get engaged in your own private jewelry store. Buy every house on the block. Have four kids instead of two. Don’t just have a dog, have three dogs. Then add a goat, chickens, and cows.
    5. Take risks and cultivate an entrepreneurial approach to life. (Read: if your husband buys a clunker of a houseboat sight unseen, go with it.)
    6. Related: embrace “opportunities,” even if you need to cry first. Don’t be afraid to have loud throw-primer-in-your-face fights. Just talk it through afterward.
    7. Embrace the messiness of life. Let go of perfectionism and focus on values that matter like family and being present.
    8. Forego owning a television. Watch big games at Baylor in the stadium or at a friend’s house.
    9. Forget watching the way a date treats your waiter. If you can find someone who gets along with ragtag neighborhood kids, the construction crew, and, clients with money to burn, you probably have a winner.
    10. Know what you like and trust that other people might like it too.
    11. Choose projects that have a clear beginning, middle, and end.
    12. If you’re the kind of couple that knows “the more time we spend together, the better our relationship is,” find a hobby or something you both like doing together.
    13. Focus on delivering a complete sensory experience to clients, not just selling products.
    14. Reinvest every dollar you make back into your business and community.
    15. The voice of God, intuition, inner wisdom…whatever you call it, don’t ignore it.

    The Magnolia Story is on B&N bookshelves now.
