Designer Napier (coauthor, The Lantern House), who cohosts with her husband the HGTV show Home Town, has written a lushly illustrated book that describes the renovation of their home in Laurel, MS. She shares stories of their early renovations, the upgrades they made as they could afford them, their daughters, time with family and friends, and surviving a tornado that damaged their house. The author also includes her memories of the houses where she grew up and her grandmother’s home. Included in the book are her family and friends’ reflections, favorite room picks, and photos. There are also mentions and images of porches, entryways, home offices, kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, and living, dining, and guest rooms. This browsable, charming book includes stunning photographs of inviting and eclectic spaces, along with the owners’ thoughts on what makes these rooms in a house become a home.
VERDICT Fans of Home Town will relish this insightful look at the cohosts’ dream home and memories. This title will also likely appeal to readers who enjoy interior design and personalizing their own living spaces to create a homey feel.
