Book Review: Romantic Prairie Style

Homes Inspired by Traditional Country Life

Partial Synopsis from Good Reads Romantic Prairie Style embraces simple pleasures, comfort and the long-cherished ideals of natural beauty, simplicity and harmony with the earth.

My Thoughts:  Can you tell I am still trying to tweak my recently painted Home Office?  Thank goodness my public library has a large home decor section!  This book contains stunning photography!  Many of the shots include family pets, which always make me smile!  For my old rock farmhouse built in 1935, this book is chock full of lovely ideas.  Not only are the pieces in these homes beautiful, they also serve a purpose.  In my modest cottage, everything needs to be functional.  My favorite quote in the book comes from Lisa Adkins on Page 125.  "I don't try to make things fit a certain look," she says,  "I love what I love."  Me, too!  ;-)

What have you been reading?

  1. Hi Marci. I haven't visited your blog for a long time and I'm glad I found it again. I've been reading so many books from various book review programs. Currently I'm reading Blessing Your Grown Children by Debra Evans. After which I will read Through My Fathers Eyes by Franklin Graham.

  2. Have now ordered this one from the library. Thanks!
