Home & Garden

Homebody by Joanna Gaines

The popular HGTV show Fixer Upper might be over, but its designer Joanna Gaines isn’t leaving us high and dry. If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to use Joanna’s signature style in your own space (or wanted to get a room-by-room look at the Gaines’s own home), then pick up a copy of her new book. In Homebody, she shares her best tips and advice about creating a space that is warm and welcoming—and might just have a bit of shiplap and subway tile. This book is a must for Fixer Upper fans! - S.B.

Dry Gardens by Daniel Nolan

Like so many, I made the move toward low-water gardening out of a feeling of responsibility, but what I didn’t expect was how much I would love the drought-tolerant plants and landscaping elements that came with it. Dry Gardens celebrates those elements, showcasing the hardscaping—paths, stonework, architectural elements—as well as plants (including sage, succulents, and cacti) in 25 public and private gardens. This is a gorgeous look at gardens that are perfect for our current and future water resources. - S.B.

Make Something Good Today by Erin & Ben Napier

Erin and Ben Napier have gained a huge following from their show, Home Town, remodeling houses in their small hometown of Laurel, Mississippi, but fans may not know that they worked hard to rebuild and strengthen their community long before they landed on HGTV. In Make Something Good Today, the Napiers share that story and their years-long commitment to using their carpentry and design skills to transform homes into personal spaces that are comfortable, beautiful, and bring joy and pride to the owners—which, in turn, has made their town prosper. The charm and ease of this creative couple, so evident on their show, come shining through on the pages of their book. - S.B.

Small Space Style by Whitney Leigh Morris

Whitney Morris is a firm believer that one doesn’t need to live large to live beautifully. She practices what she preaches in the tiny 362-foot home she shares with her husband, son, and two dogs in Venice Beach. On The Tiny Canal Cottage blog and in this book, Morris shares her tips for living well in a small space. Refreshingly, she does not think that the answer lies entirely in clever storage solutions, but rather in not having more stuff than you need. She also has smart advice about sticking to a color palette (even with dog toys!) so that when things are strewn about, they don’t look out of place. Small Space Style will help you create a home you’ll love, no matter the size. - S.B.

Plant Style by Alana Langan & Jacqui Vidal

Close your eyes and visualize a lush, vibrant, greener-than-green jungle. Now get rid of the bugs and giant cats who want to eat you, lose the muggy, humid air, and add some cute pots and knotted plant hangers (see my review of Modern Macramé). Now open your eyes and see that you’re holding a copy of Plant Style, which, through its beautiful pictures, plant profiles, and care charts (including information on the water and light needs of the various plants) shows you how to curate and care for this jungle. - Megan
