Inspiration from Room Recipes by Tanya Olson

I have a fun book to share with you today on interior design! I'll be the first to admit that I need a little help in this department. I'm eclectic and love too many things so when I saw the neat layout of Tonya Olsen's new book, Room Recipes, I felt it would be the perfect thing to shape up my home. Tonya has set up the book like a cookbook for your home with recipes for each area from work to play and wash to eat.

My favorite area of study is the WORK section because we've rearranged our house so that I can finally use my office! Woo Hoo! I can't wait to show you the room makeover for my office. I've painted the walls and it looks great, but you'll have to stay tuned to see what inspiration I've pulled from this amazing design book. Tonya has so many great ideas to make a home more functional, beautiful, and enjoyable.
