Most Helpful Customer Reviews
just received my copy of Vacation At Home and I am so impressed. It's really beautiful and it has immediately made me want to "edit" the things in my home to create a more restful and beautiful place. Seriously, I am inspired. There is something about the layout and gorgeous images and even though there is text, it is all super useful and easy to read and it doesn't talk down to the reader. In fact, I like that Vern gives you ideas on how to do this stuff on a budget and how to really honor your own taste and style. One of the ideas is to look at things you have out and to sort them by what really means something to you vs. what is just there because it's there. Then he offers ways to give the things that you love prominence so you enjoy them more. I've admired Vern Yip on TV and I liked the concept of making my house feel more serene, but I didn't realize the things I was doing that work against that. Anyway, I don't review a lot of books, but I was moved to share this.
