5.0 out of 5 stars To those that say the BINDING IS TOO TIGHT :
Reviewed in the United States on 11 November 2018
This book is made to last; meaning, the binding and spine are tight and sturdy. This means that you cannot open this book carelessly: you must open the book and ‘break it in’ with purpose and care, so that the binding and leaves last a lifetime.

To do this:
1. Stand the book vertically, with the spine on a flat surface
2. Open both the front cover and back cover, so that they lie flat
3. Alternately open a few pages from the front and back, gently pressing along the seam, working your way towards the middle
4. Work the book in this way a few times, so that the spine expands and opens up. You’ll find it much easier to read after this.

On another note: this book’s purpose is to TEACH you how to Identify styles and motifs that you enjoy, and is a companion on your journey to figure out what YOU enjoy-it’s an exercise in critical thinking. Yes, the photos are mostly neutral, and you may think that the photos do not have enough color. However, you should not take this as a disappointment for the book. In fact, a congratulations is in order- you succeeded in what the goal of the book was- to teach you to indentify what YOU like and dislike. This isn’t a ‘pick and choose’ catalogue- it’s a textbook. And it’s a fantastic textbook

Reviewed in the United States on 7 November 2018
I just received my copy and obviously have not read it cover to cover, but I can already tell this is a great book. First off, the quality is incredible. It makes a beautiful coffee table book and will look just as nice sitting on your bookcase. The pages are matte and not glossy, (no glare) which makes it easier to really study the images and capture the true sense of the shot. Joanna encourages you to study the pictures to help you uncover your personal style and what you gravitate towards. This book really makes a wonderful gift. As for the content of the book itself, we’ll, what can I say? It’s also incredible. I love, love, love the format and how she divides the book according to different rooms in your house: Living, dining, entry, bedrooms.. etc. Each room has a short troubleshooting section where she describes common pitfalls that keep it from looking it’s best. The book also gives plenty of examples to help you narrow down your design style. The most unique thing about Homebody has to be the fold-out design template at the back of the book. The purpose of the design template is to help you put your plan into action. She describes how to use the template to help you identify trouble areas, sketch the basic layout of your space, and develop your action plan. There’s even a link so you can print additional templates as needed!! Joanna thought of everything. This book is different from other design books because it isn’t just filled with pretty pictures, it truly is a guide to creating a space you love. Again, I just quickly skimmed through the book, but I am thoroughly impressed and can’t wait to really sit down with it and put her suggestions to work!
