“I love this book.  I have really hated my house and was thinking about selling it.  This book has made me rethink that decision and consider that I may actually end up loving it.  I do not love it yet, but after reading Love the Home You Have, I have a new appreciation for my house.  I am thankful to have a house and have found ways to make it feel more like a home.  I also love the website and the challenges that Melissa has set up.”

“Before I read this book I had completely given up on decorating. I was frustrated, I didn’t know what I liked, and I felt like it was too expensive for me to ever have a home that I loved. When I finished this book, I had hope. First—someone else felt the same way I did! and Second—She was able to overcome it! While this book is more sweeping, and not necessarily specific tips, It sparked ideas and inspiration for me to start making changes in my home. And it’s really changed my whole outlook!”

"Love the Home You Have is what all overwhelmed moms need—confirmation that they can find joy in the small things no matter the size of their home or the amount of stuff they have (or do not have)."
Susan Heid, The Confident Mom

"Love the Home You Have speaks not only to the well-organized mom who wants to create a beautiful and lovely home, but to the disorganized, stressed, often-overwhelmed mom (me) who just needs some reassurance about what a home truly is. Melissa has a passion for life and beauty that translates into one of the best (and most needed) books I have read in a long time. Well done!"

It doesn't matter if you live in a tiny basement apartment or a grand, 5,000-square-foot home. The ideas and tips Melissa shares can be done by anyone, in any decorating style, and even on the tiniest of budgets."
Diane Henkler, In My Own Style
