Design*Sponge at Home by Grace Bonney

From the publisher: The long-awaited home décor bible by the beloved design blogger… “Thank you,” wrote a reader to Design*Sponge creator Grace Bonney, “for teaching me that houses don’t have to be frumpy and formal. They don’t have to be matchy-matchy or rigidly modern.” They can just be comfy and unique and reflect who you are, no matter how small your budget or space. With over 700 color photos and illustrations and projects that are customizable, relatable, and affordable, this is the democratizing design book everyone has been waiting for.

Last fall I stood in line with 2 books in hand (one for me and one for this giveaway) to have Grace Bonney sign. Grace is so sweet and nice. And this book is fabulous, an instant favorite. If you’re in a decorating rut, or just like looking at cool houses, you’ll love this book. And check out Grace’s infamous blog Design*Sponge.


  1. This book looks lovely! Our home is currently a mesh of my first marriage, hand-me-down furniture, and a bachelor pad (which is surprising since we’re in our early 30’s, not early 20’s!) so any bit of home inspiration is a great thing!
