    I have a sister who is interested in decorating and the farmhouse style and all of that. When I first had the chance to read and review Restoration House, I thought it would be a design book that she would be interested in. This book is less of a how-to, decorating book and more of a book focused on creating a peaceful and good home, overall.

    Who This Book is For:

    Those who are interested in design but also interested in more than that. This book is all about creating a home with God's help.

    What I liked:

    This is a nice sized book and it feels good in the hand. The cover is pretty and it would look good sitting out.

    There are some really helpful tips in the book, like what to do when you have guests showing up and you do not have time to fully clean before they arrive.

    The author shares bits and pieces from her life in this book.

    What I didn't like:

    I wanted more pictures of designs and decor and that kind of thing.

    My conclusion:

    Overall, I think this is a nice book.

    I give Restoration House 4 out of 5 stars.

    I received this book free to review from BookLook. The opinions expressed in this review are my true thoughts and feeling regarding this book. I am disclosing this information in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.

    This book is the story of a woman (Kennesha Buycks) who realizes that God met her while she was restoring furniture. And He used this newfound hobby of hers to pour into her and transform her from someone who was more superficial and discontent to someone who could see the beauty below the surface and who is now content with her portion in life.

    There is so much in this book that it goes beyond coffee table book to a handy resource. I'll share some excerpts (photos) of the practical tips and guides that the author shares with us; the deep and meaningful prayers she shares at the end of each chapter; the hospitality hacks spread throughout. There is even a guide on creating your own cheese board for entertaining.

    I greatly appreciated the reflection and prayer sections at the end of each chapter because it brings God into our homes and into our designs & gives Him glory through it all.

    This book gets 5 stars from me and is DEFINITELY worth adding to your library! {FYI: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my HONEST review. In other words, I genuinely LOVE this book.}

    Good read on the various ways you can make your home your retreat and place of solitude and entertaining. Many topics are covered, including: food to serve and ways to serve, decorative items such as coffee table and decorations, color in various rooms, plants, and many others.

    Informative, contains many good pictures, and good narrative, the book is targeted towards women, but men can learn a few things too. After all, a man's home is supposed to be his castle! I was given a review copy by BookLook Bloggers in exchange for a fair review and appreciate the opportunity.
