No place like home

tips & techniques for real family-friendly home design
Stephen Saint-Onge
Book - 2011

"From the many room makeovers he has done for magazines, newspapers, and television shows, designer Stephen Saint-Onge has a very real sense of what everyday families want and need from their homes. Being a father, husband, and homeowner himself, he is living the life that the fans of his work are, and that allows him to connect to those fans in a unique and personal way. Stephen designs spaces that are practical, budget-conscious, and family-friendly as well as beautiful. His personal motto is "Good design has the power to change lives." No Place Like Home captures Stephen's design aesthetic, which mixes traditional American style with modern comforts and convenience. Stephen walks readers through his personal process for finding design inspiration in unconventional places--like films--and building a personal Look Book that helps readers define their own aesthetic. Full of creative advice, design tips, and renovation ideas, this book shows families how to create spaces that work for everyone. More than just pretty pictures, No Place Like Home serves as a useful tool for readers looking for guidance on making their homes truly livable. The first section helps homeowners approach design by defining their style and defining their goals and budget for the space; introduces creative tools and tricks that can have a big impact on a room; and educates readers on various materials, furnishings, and accessories. The second section walks through each room of the home, explaining secrets that Stephen has developed in working with hundreds of families. It includes not just living rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens, but also basements, combination spaces, and outdoor areas"--
