Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

My clients and I had run off course, and I was steering the ship. For a few years we were cast adrift, searching in vain for a place to call "home." Our ship, The Style, kept carrying us farther and farther away, grounding us on foreign lands. In the English countryside, we were chased down by fox-hunting hordes. In the Southwest, giant cacti loomed fiercely, and in a barren new land called "Contemporary," our spirits nearly froze to death.

Review:

Kelee Katillac was once an ordinary interior designer. She'd meet with the wealthy husband and overeager wife, help them furnish their luxurious homes in the style of English manors, copied carefully from magazines. But she knew there had to be more to her work and life. Slowly, she began to rethink her life's project, and to understand interior design as a process of "spiritual renewal." This book lushly illustrates the ways people seek to make their homes into places of rejuvenation and worship, surrounding themselves with "images that uplift our hearts and minds." We discover candles, flowers, altars and art, and the way the most ordinary space can be transformed into the site of a spiritual journey. The photographs and essays are punctuated with "rituals of belief," suggestions and tips for creating one's own cozy haven (such as taking a field trip to a museum to get ideas for arranging potted plants and buying new sculptures). As long as one's spiritual musings aren't limited to consumption and buying new chaise lounges, "House of Belief" offers inspiration for creating a beautiful and sacred spacewithin the home. (Beliefnet, June 2000) -- From Beliefnet
