About this deal

She illustrates these with houses reflecting the styles (and not all are her own design) in some form of combination of the six. It was very nice to have a reference for the different styles and how each would look as a whole house.

Home Body: Book Review - Janice Greenwood Rupi Kaur’s Home Body: Book Review - Janice Greenwood

Feels like Rupi succumbed to the very capitalism she mourns and pushed this through too focused on the hot-button topics of the past year and lacking her normal inspiration and power. Hats off to Rupi Kaur for writing about something so incredibly personal and putting her fears, hopes and dreams on these pages as a reminder that things can get better and that despite how we sometimes feel, we are in fact, not alone. Rather, to me the joy in design is the challenge and gratification of creating a space that 'feels' like home every moment that you spend within its walls. Even though I find her openness about personal trauma and mental state courageous, unfortunately it is not enough.That being said, there were a few relatable poems that I screenshotted and I really respect Rupi’s vulnerability. This book from HGTV star and designer Joanna Gaines is recommended by several lists as a must-read interior design book.

I would say not my kind of poetry, but I don’t think what I just read can even be considered poetry. Căng thẳng trong công việc chỉ đóng một phần rất nhỏ khiến cảm xúc của mình tuôn trào như thế thôi; chủ yếu là hình như nỗi đau khi sống gần 30 năm trong một gia đình đầy những bất công, chứng kiến mẹ mình cô đơn trong chính cuộc hôn nhân của bà, cuối cùng đã bắt kịp lấy tâm hồn mình. It is obvious that all the rooms are highly styled and edited for photography and where 'real life' has not been allowed to intrude. I hoped there would be more "how to" in the book, but what was included was useful enough that it was worth the read for me.Each offers an honest look at some key moments in her (and our) life that ultimately helped shape the woman she has become. There's not a lot of text in this book, so it's mostly just about looking at pretty pictures of interiors. These political poems balance out the personal and individualistic pieces, giving voice both to the broader social issues of our times and the intimate anxieties they feed.

By placing this sentiment at the very front and back cover of the book, Kaur literally bookends the collection with the mind-body-identity relationship, asserting it as critical to living fully.I think people need to stop describing themselves like warriors and survivors and definitely stop making themselves victims and instead open up. Poetry is all about the art of mastering transitions: verbal transitions, thematic transitions, and the life transitions that often become poetry’s finest subject matter. Maybe I just don’t know enough about design to be able to take the principles laid out and apply them to my own situation? I found the book to be more inspirational than informative — there are descriptions of different styles, lots of photographs and drawings, and some general advice about the design of different rooms (such as Entryways, Kitchens, Bedrooms, Bathrooms, etc.
