This review is solely based on the content as I purchased the book from Target to get the bonus chapter. I’m four chapters in and love the conversational tone and personal stories Joanna uses in her writing.I have to disagree with the handful of reviews that expressed a lack of color throughout the book. I honestly don’t get that vibe when viewing the photographs. Yes, there is repetition in the neutral color palettes but I saw great examples of incorporating color with furniture (green sofa, yellow stools), paint and tiles (blue trim, hunter green walls, blue backsplash), and accessories (red rug, blue pillows, artwork) all within the first 120 pages. Joanna has a particular aesthetic that she carries throughout her work and is consistent in how she adds warmth to a space. Her approach to design is very functional and intentional.The quality of the paper in the book has a matte finish so the colors may not be as vivid, rather there is a calmness and serenity to each of the photographs.
