Summary, etc.: With humor and a dose of reality, Paige Rien gives readers actionable steps to adapt and make their homes work for them, imploring them to ignore outside influences and look inward for inspiration. Readers are asked to think about what makes them unique, not what style they prefer, making their lives and experiences the central focus in composing a very personal, very functional home. As opposed to traditional design books that are often a catalog of a particular designer's work, or a collection of work with no discussion of process, Love the House You're In is all about the reader: uncovering what she needs and desires and providing concrete, doable ideas to take her there.
