"Drawing on ancient wisdom and modern science and filled with examples from the author's groundbreaking research and work with clients, this is a philosophical and practical guide to creating a home environment that reflects your values, shapes your behavior, and supports you on your journey of self-discovery."

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!

d Yourself at Home
A Conscious Approach to Shaping Your Space and Your Life
by Emily Grosvenor

#FindYourselfatHome #NetGalley

Note this book’s subtitle as it accurately describes what is inside. The author is well qualified to write on her subject as she is a Feng Shui consultant (and also a magazine editor). Grosvenor has also been perusing the real estate ads ever since she was a child.

In these pages, the author offers many insights and suggestions on how to make one’s living space just right. In doing this, Grosvenor draws on many traditions that readers may well find inspiring. She looks at a home through the lenses of “philosophy (connect with the mystery and power of your home), space (prepare your environment for your story), build (discovering design tools to cue your behavior) and desire (bringing your aspirations into you space).”

I enjoyed the personal sharing that the author offers in these pages. I also liked what I would call, activities, questions or things to think about. As an example, she asks readers to determine their home’s values. To help them she provides a list of many words that will enable readers to hone in on what is important fo them.

The illustrations in this book greatly add to what is found here. They all feel very peaceful and evoke the book’s spirit.

Those who read this title will, I think, begin to look at their spaces more mindfully and intently. Some genuine improvement and happiness may be the result.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Chronicle Books for this title. All opinions are my own.

I like the book, I thought the information for mapping out your home was the most useful and offered something that was different from other self help books that I've read. For me the last line of the book about loving your home is the key take away from the entire book.

Find Yourself at Home; A Conscious Approach to Shaping Your Space and Your Life by Emily Grosvenor was beautiful and so important to me. I’m a double water sign so you know my home is my most important thing to me. This book that belongs on every library shelf! I felt so lucky to get a copy for myself! I have shared on my goodreads, bookstagram, and booktok!

Overall, I like the book. I am quite familiar with Feng Shui and I thought the author did a good job laying out the basics of Feng Shui and house harmony. There are lots of details which she presented in an informative manner. I liked her honest appraisal of when her health was impacted and how she rearranged her house, which I did too so I understand where she was coming from. Yet, all houses are not created equal and perhaps that point needed more emphasis. The reason I say that is , my house is/ was built as a summer cabin and done with out any thought. I've had to rearrange how I see my house and I did specifiacally use Feng Shui to do that. But not everyone will see that .
Still it is an informative book and well worth the time to read. I especially like the 'move 27 things' which I have done iand is quite effective for moving energy.

I was so excited to receive this book from netgalley. I took some of the ideas offered throughout and have decided to apply them to my life. I very much want my home to be a safe haven for my family. Unfortunately, I felt the book got too intense for me - it left me feeling overwhelmed with the idea that previous home owners' lives will affect my own between these walls. I like to believe that it's our own energy and choices that affect what's happening around us, not people from the past.
