About this title

Synopsis:

Transform your home with Tracy's signature style and spirited approach to comfortable living.

When Tracy Porter founded her company with a $5,000 loan from her parents, she never envisioned that eight years later it would be a $40 million business with products sold at thousands of retail stores.

In Tracy Porter's Home Style, Tracy demonstrates how to enliven rooms with old treasures and common objects. Lavishly illustrated, and brimming with inspiration, Tracy's book shows you how to reinvent your home with simple and creative ways to use paint, fabric, rugs, pillows, and even scents. Each chapter contains a multitude of valuable tips and rule-breaking ideas, and the Make & Create Guide for every featured project assures that you can adapt these projects to your own home. Tracy Porter's Home Style will help new and old fans alike create a warm and welcoming home.

Tracy has been featured on Oprah, E! Entertainment's Homes with Style, and in the pages of O Magazine, People, Good Housekeeping, and Victoria.

Review:

In Tracy Porter's world, decorating choices don't have to be permanent, and even the mud room is pretty. Her combination of vintage collecting and do-it-yourself crafting is appealing no matter what your budget, so grab your paintbrushes and prepare to gild a few lilies with Tracy Porter's Home Style.

The majority of the book showcases her own home and often shows the same piece of furniture in different settings--sometimes even with a completely different look. Each section includes short lists of "Tracy's Tips," which offer simple suggestions on everything from placing candles in the kitchen to effective uses for throw pillows. The feel is lush but also fun and flexible; she admits to mistakes like glossy black floors (they don't work too well with pets and kids!) while at the same time encouraging readers to take a few risks and paint the dining room that deep color they've been craving. Doorknobs, drawer pulls, light plates, and windows are all fair game for decorating, and the last chapter gives plenty of specific details for projects as small as hot-gluing a new tissue box and as large as refinishing a pair of chairs. If rich fabrics, striking colors, and a sense of play are what inspire you, this book provides all the incentive you need to have fun with decorating. --Jill Lightner
