This book was so fun to read. It gave me a lot to think about for the new year. I enjoyed how Grosvenor set up each chapter in an easy to follow way but was still thorough. This will make a great gift for a hostess in the new year as well.
Thanks to NetGalley for the advanced copy for the purpose of this review.
Goodness! This book has it all! I love the idea of seeing your home space as a collaborator! How true it is that our homes hold energy and give energy, and this book is an in depth compendium of techniques to attract the energy we want and create spaces that we vibe with, that make us feel what we need to feel. There is no shortage of information on styles of houses, specific rooms, colour theory, energy clearing, energy attracting, decoration, and so much more! Grosvenor writes with a soothing voice, and the illustrations and design of the book communicate a calm and clear flow from chapter to chapter. There are exercises that help you find your goal energies and turn that knowledge into a space that reflects clear intention. It has definitely given me a perspective I hadn't considered before.
This is a must-have resource!! It is full of great strategies, advice, and easy to implement ideas. This is one I'll return to again and again. Many thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for the advanced copy of the book.
Thank you to the publisher and author for an advanced copy. All opinions are my own.
This book had a lot of great tips. I don’t feel that I was the right audience for it but I would definitely pick it up again in the future, perhaps after I bought my first home.
This isn’t a “how to organize your house” book. If you’re looking for tips on that, find something else.
What this book IS, is a way to connect to the energy in your home, utilize feng shui, take your purpose and staging your story in the home you live in. It helps you see your space and the pieces in it as messaging to your senses. How does a room make you feel? Do the objects in the room feel warm and inviting or cold and unwelcoming? This book touches on quite a bit.
Another aspect is leftover energy. I found this book super interesting in that regard. I believe in energy existing in spaces beyond the people that inhabited them. If you don’t believe in anything but a house being a house, you’ll find this book not to your liking. I appreciate the fact there are some tidbits about research done as well, I’m always up for a good fact.
I think the information contained in this book, at the very least, will get your wheels turning and considering the space you live in and HOW it affects you. This book opens up your perspective.

Somethings taking a new approach or adding new things into our life/ home does ave it benefits. The author didn’t know lack on any aspect of this book, it was so well orchestrated, the organization of topics, ideas etc we’re mapped out so well.
As an autistic adult this helped give me new ideas to have more a routine and feel balance at the same time. Highly recommend this to add to any home.
This book made the overwhelming feeling task of decorating the home and made it into easy to digest sections. I liked the idea the author was trying to prove that our homes are an extension of ourselves and sometimes a direct reflection of how we are feeling. The religious aspects in this book are there but minimal enough that they didn’t bother me at all. My favorite part of the book was the last section where the author delved into how to make an energy map of your home and ideas on how to enhance each area. I don’t know much about feng shui so this part was fascinating and very informative. Overall the information was great and easy enough for a beginner at home decor but also had insights for people who already have a distinct vision in their home.
A thought-provoking guide to making your space your own. In what ways might color, decluttering, feng shui, and many other adjustments bring your space into alignment with the life you want to be living?
This might be a great gift for new homeowners and/or anyone who feels stuck in place. I'm certainly going to utilize a few of these tips in my own space right now!
