In My Opinion
I don’t consider myself a great designer. In truth, I tend to find what I like and put it hodge-podge around my home. I’m not one of those people, as Victoria Duerstock mentions, who sees a blank space and can picture the end result. Nope, I try something and keep it if I like or keep trying if I don’t like it.
Yet, in her design and devotional book, Heart & Home, Duerstock delivers tidbits and tips for both types of people (those who can envision a room from the get-go and those who end up taking a few stops and starts.
With beautiful photography of rooms, focal points, or design elements to go with every bite-sized devotional in this book, Duerstock ties an element of design basics with a spiritual truth. As an added bonus, readers will also enjoy either a prayer or scripture as well as a design tip on every page.
Like me, you just might find encouragement along with a few design ideas to try out in your home.
