IN MY OPINION
The Decorating Club by Susan M. Meyers is a story about so much more than decorating (although, that is a fun piece of the story). This book is about friendships formed when a group of women come together with the common goal of redoing a room in each of their houses.
These are not surface friendships, either. The women in this book do not shy away from tackling the hard topics, calling each other on their “stuff,” and encouraging each other to discover and go after their dreams.
There were a couple of small things that would have made this book even better. For example, if we were in a deeper point of view from each of these women, we would see the internal dialogue and wrestling each woman goes through when she it’s her turn to find her story and decorate her room. The way the book is written, each person has an immediate turn around and, in my experience, that’s not usually the case when it comes to such life-changing changes. It does, however, work for the sake of word count.
Overall, this was an enjoyable read with some great truths woven throughout such as ignoring negativity, finding who you are and what you want, and friendship. A sweet weekend read that just might motivate you to tackle a room of your own.
