Format: Paperback
Full of creative ideas based on sound feng-shui principles, for rethinking the design, layout and use of storage at home! Dawna Walters challenges us to make our home meet our needs. She suggests, room by room, how we can make amazing changes - not only to get things back in order but more importantly, to maximize our use and enjoyment of the living space we have in our homes, in terms of both function and style. Beautifully illustrated, this book inspires us on every page to live in a clutter-free and organised way, and to develop our living space to its full potential. It allows us to live the dream!

Great book I owned it before, but lost it in a house move so re-bought it. It's a book I refer to again and again especially when life gets a bit overwhelming, I find it has a very calming effect on me and enables me to get everything tidy and back on track. It's full of practical information and beautiful illustrations. It has definitely helped me to live in a more organised way.

Not just for designers... 11 Dec. 1999
By Lupita Valdés - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The minute I picked up this book, I could not put it down. There are so many great ideas in it, that it makes it almost impossible not to try to be a little bit more organized. I work in Advertising and it's been a great help.It's come in handy when I'm designing because it has such a great sense of space, structure and balance. This book is a must for anyone who needs help getting organized.

Quite Possibly My Favorite Book 1 Nov. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Dawna Walter should be considered one of England's national treasures! Her book has amazing tips for organizing the home. The book is cleverly divided into sections by room type. Each section has different examples, tips and lots of beautiful photos. Unlike other books on orhanizing the home Walter's does not consist soley of starkly modern interiors devoid of posessions. My favorite tip is to have storage under steps in a stairwell. It's hard to explain, but a picture;s worth a thousand words and the book has plenty! Definitely a book that you will come back to again and again.
My go-to book when needing inspiration and incentive 13 Mar. 2014
By V. McMillan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is not a brand new book, but it is a wonderful look at how to change the smaller areas, as well as the larger rooms of the home to be welcoming and relaxing. I've relied on it over the years to help me achieve the balance I want at home.
