Book Overview

Ever wonder how designers create such beautiful spaces? The co-founders of Havenly unpack all the styling fundamentals to create a personal and inspired home designed for actually living.

Traditional interior design often brings to mind fancy estates and expensive renovations, and as a result most of us think an expertly designed home is out of reach. Until now. Lee Mayer and Emily Motayed founded Havenly to offer professional design advice uniquely tailored to your distinct space, style, and, most important, real-life budget.

In Design the Home You Love, Lee and Emily share tried-and-true designer tips to create a home you love living in--from taking stock of your existing space to discovering your personal style and ultimately arranging furniture and decor like a seasoned pro. Featuring fresh ideas, livable inspiration, and eye-catching photography from real clients, Design the Home You Love guides you room by room as you learn how to unlock your home's full potential.

Cozy up with some coffee (or wine, if that's your thing) and let's get styling.

   Too academic in its approach...where's the fun?
I was very excited to get this book, but when it arrived, I was very disappointed. The text is teeny-tiny, and the photos are scattered across the screen. Like a storyboard or board-feel product, it's all about the visuals. I felt like I was reading a textbook, and that was not what I had in mind when I purchased this book. It was a struggle to get through it, then I gave up bc it felt very flat in tone and like work. The search is on for the perfect interior design book of my dreams. Yes, it will be back.
   Super helpful guide GET THIS BOOK!
Television images could not be loaded. Such an awesome book, Gillian. It helps you execute the vision in your head with details you wouldn't have thought of. So if you're an interior lover and want to round out your design skills, then this book is for you! Ps. ignore the spaghetti plate.
   Pleasant book, overhyped on practicality
The practical one was on rugs - size, fibers, placement. There is a budget list of recommended cuts for several levels of capital investment. There was a list of places to shop that might be of use to someone. I was hoping for suggestions on room furniture placement, dealing with existing home features, what to do with what one has shopbed your own closet for example. The practical word in the title lured me, but alas, failed in my estimation to deliver much of that. Prints are also available at discounted prices through the Web site.
   Glad to have this Book!
I'm not a designer. That was the reason I bought this book. It gives me great ideas and I can use them," he said. It's lovely to look at, Tunick said.
   Beautiful coffee table book
Whether it's a book, magazine or even a movie, I'm always on the hunt for the best and most aesthetically pleasing coffee table books. It's one of the best I've ever seen. This is a wonderful read for anyone interested in interior design tips and inspiration. Along with the help of these inspirational interior designers, there are so many gorgeous interior spreads that have given me tons of ideas for my apartment. It's great to have guests over and they are intrigued by it and love browsing through the book.
   A Must Read
I was looking for the perfect coffee table book and came across this gem. I received the book yesterday and I'm already reading Part 2. The book is divided into three parts: The Foundation, The Style Breakdown, and Styling. An added bonus for me is how I love that the author grew up in the Washington DC area, where I currently live. This is a book with designer photos that you can't put down! Yes, it does meet the designer photo criteria, but also serves as a functional book that you can easily read and apply to your own home and style. The author further showcases each concept with beautiful visuals, including full-page pictures serving as the perfect coffee table book for guests. The book, published in 2021, is the culmination of years of research and experimentation by interior design consultant Robert B. Kelly. This book is by far the best interior decorator I have ever met.
   Practical tips and tricks to make your home look great (and feel like you!)
I'm a new homeowner and have been looking for home design books and practical tips on how to pull everything together. The design by Robert B. O'Neill was so original, it was immediately recognizable. Every space I’ve decorated to date has looked okay, but there’s always something that feels a little off, or not quite like me. I have found that this book has been a game changer in terms of laying out all of the practical tips and tricks that I need to know to make my space actually feel like home. They cover concepts such as scale and proportion, how to mix and match different colors, and even where to splurge vs. save on different items. The plan is to use the book as a jumping-off point to make changes, and I cannot wait to see how everything comes together. I feel more confident in my ability to decorate my home and the final outcome, and can't wait to revisit this book in years to come, she said.
   Perfect mix of Inspiration & Practical Advice
This book is beautiful as a decorative accent on my coffee table, but even better it's full of useful and inspiring designs. It's great to just flip through for inspiration, but it's also full of actually useful tips around discovering personal style to where to spend money in your home and how to style different surfaces as well. I have a lot of other design books, but the homes feel out of reach. It's a completely different beast. It's still beautiful, but it feels like I can actually translate those into my own home. The book is intended to be a gift to friends and family who appreciate design and want to spruce up their spaces.
   You WILL want to read this coffee table book! 10/10
I'm not a huge coffee table book fan, but I do love books around home design. I have collected many a coffee book, it's just that I've never owned one. Many of the pictures are beautiful, inspirational, but often more so aspirational. The book is not only beautiful but incredibly informative for the everyday real person. I'm a huge fan of the book, combining real photographs of spaces with advice on how to achieve different design styles as well as updating your space all on your own. Gone are the days of beautiful home design that were completely out of reach of the average Joe. His life has been defined by love, his family said.
