No Place Like Home

Mar 10, 2011 07:45PM ● Published by Anonymous

Quite often we drool over the gorgeous rooms found in shelter magazines; often folding page corners to indicate what we dream we will do to our homes. If you’re like me, many of those dreams get stacked alongside the nightstand. Why? Because they aren’t real life. Who could possibly live in an all white pristine home dripping with silk and chandeliers and have children, pets and well, a life?

Stephen Saint-Onge’s new book, No Place Like Home: Tips & techniques for real family-friendly design. This book offers hope for those of us who do have a full workday, kids, pets, or all of the above.

Tips and design techniques abound in this book along with budget how-tos and real-life advice. Saint-Onge reveals ways to incorporate your personality into a room, how to define your style, and then, how to showcase your style. He even shares his personal style secrets for every room of the house.

In Part One of the book, Saint-Onge offers advice on how to get started, creative resources, remodels, renovations, redesigns, and even guidance on how to accomplish a weekend makeover.

In Part Two of the book, Saint-Onge takes readers through every room in the house and offers thoughts, techniques, and advice on how to coordinate fabrics, display art, seating arrangements, and so much more.

Saint-Onge is well known for his monthly column, “House Calls” in Better Homes and Gardens magazine and BHG.com and has appeared on numerous television shows.
