Inside the Not So Big House: Discovering the Details that Bring a Home to Life (Susanka)
$5.87
Description
Best-selling author of The Not So Big House Sarah Susanka teams up with architectural design writer Marc Vassallo to expand upon the message that has resonated with over a million homeowners and builders across the country: opting for personalized, well-crafted, thoughtfully designed spaces over superfluous square footage results in a home that comforts and nourishes those who live there. Susanka and Vassallo focus their lens on the tangible and sometimes intangible details that bring an otherwise ordinary home to life. Incorporating such details as dropped ceilings, built-in shelves, pocket doors, window seats, and well-placed alcoves infuses a home with the character of its owners and conveys a uniqueness that's mising in many homes built or remodeled today. From Rhode Island to San Diego, the 23 homes featured here illustrate exceptional attention to detail. Each offers inspiration for those building or remodeling to transform their home into an expression of all that is important to them.

The Right Color
$9.35
Description
The definitive guide to paint by the nation's most sought-after color consultant
When Martha Stewart was developing her first paint collection, the Araucana Colors (based on the hues of her chickens' eggs), she turned to the nation's top color consultant: Eve Ashcraft. Eve helped Martha to pinpoint the colors of that enormously successful paint line, thus assisting in transforming an industry along the way. In her first book, The Right Color, her own curated palette (her paint line launches this fall) and countless other favorite shades and color combinations provide inspiration for every room in the house. Packed with trade secrets, such as how to make a small room look bigger, how to use color to brighten a space, and how to use paint to resolve myriad architectural challenges, this book will give anyone the confidence to choose a palette that will make the most of any space.

Conscious Home Design: The Guide to Living Your Best Life by Designing for Happiness Health and Relationship Success
$16.63
Description

There is a paradigm shift happening in home design. Today's homeowners are more design savvy and demand more than what the old world values represent and deliver. For the Conscious Homeowner, gone are the days when a house is deemed adequate simply because it is built in Z architectural style, has Y number of bedrooms, and X number of square feet.

Conscious Homeowners expect more from their homes. They want increased functionality, reduced maintenance, and smaller utility bills. They want a home that maximizes their sense of individual freedom and personal privacy, while at the same time fostering greater family connection. They want highly supportive homes that enhance their lifestyle by removing friction and creating ease and grace.

Just as proper diet, exercise and good relationships are essential components of a happy, successful life, so too is proper home design. Conscious Home Design creates momentum in the lives of those who experience it, helping people more readily achieve their noble hopes and dreams, and bright ambitions. When you place the essential parts of life within the context of a consciously designed home, you and your loved ones will be served and supported night and day.

The Simple Home: The Luxury of Enough (American Institute Architects)
$6.83
Description
For everyone who craves a simpler lifestyle, not only in how they live but also where they live, The Simple Home features 21 houses and presents six different approaches to creating a home that realizes its full potential both simply and elegantly.
We are living in complex times, in a commodified, virtual, and overstimulated culture. One response to high levels of complexity and overstimulation is to look for yet another gadget or closet organizer to simplify our lives. But the answer lies somewhere else. The road to a simpler more satisfying life begins with a clear-eyed examination of the choices we are making for our time--and that includes choices about where we want to live.
The Simple Home presents six paths to simplicity, each illustrated by human-scaled, unadorned homes with straightforward floor plans and forms. These are open, light-filled homes (with rooms or spaces that are often multipurpose) that express their beauty in their utility and practicality. Simple homes are low maintenance and often green, designed for homeowners who wish to embody a different set of values in their housing choices than the run-of-the-mill starter castles littering the landscape.
The 6 Paths to Simplicity:
1. Simple is Enough
2. Simple is Thrifty
3. Simple is Flexible
4. Simple is Timeless
5. Simple is Sustainable
6. Simple is Refined
