Clear off the coffee table, because three noteworthy design books have just hit the shelves. Two were born from beloved blogs and one from the HGTV and “9 by Design” duo — and all three are full of accessible, inspiring home ideas.
“Design*Sponge at Home” by Grace Bonney (Artisan Books)
Gorgeous photos, informative captions, inspiring crafts, and DIY tricks — flipping through the dreamy pages of “Design*Sponge at Home” is reminiscent of spending an hour or two on Pinterest. (I’m not the only one who does that, right?) And trust me, you’ll wish you could pin just about everything you see.
Favorite feature: The DIY Basics section’s lists of all the tools you should have in your home and easy-to-follow instructions for the “how do I do that again?” projects that come up anytime you tackle a room redesign.
“Home by Novogratz” by Robert & Courtney Novogratz (Artisan Books)
Before-and-after lovers, this is the book for you. Walk through 20 home renovations complete with step-by-step details on the process and what it took to get to the end result. As if the Novogratz’s expertise wasn’t enough, it’s peppered with extra tips from pros on everything from hanging art to color selection.
Favorite feature: A budget analysis at the end of each overhaul so you know exactly how much dough went where.
“Young House Love” by Sherry & John Petersik (Artisan Books)
The Petersiks are breaking out of the blogosphere with their first book. (And yes, they’re bringing Burger, too.) With 243 tips and tricks for crafting, updating, and renovating your home (all written the signature Petersik pep you’ve come to expect from their blog), their book will have you itching to break out your ORB spray paint.
Favorite feature: Handy project breakdowns that let you know just how much time, effort, and money you’ll need to invest before you begin each project.
If you just can’t wait to get your hands on these books, you’re in luck! We’re giving away one copy each of “Home by Novogratz” and “Design*Sponge at Home.” To enter, leave a comment on this post. Good luck!
