The most comprehensive and complete home book from Apartment Therapy, featuring every aspect of design and decorating from floor plans to paint, specific rooms to style approaches, with the goal of setting up and living well in a place you love. 

“A complete and happy home is so much more than a series of pretty rooms. Between these two covers, we’ve captured everything we’ve learned at Apartment Therapy about decorating, organizing, cleaning, and repairs, so you can make and maintain your own fabulous home.” 

—from the Introduction

Getting a room to feel right is more instinct than science. You know a great space when you see it. Apartment Therapy trains your eye with more than 75 rooms, from bedrooms to kitchens and living rooms to kids’ rooms and workspaces. Explore every detail—lighting, color palettes, flooring, and accessories—that brings a home to life and, most important, makes you happy in it.

Reviews-
  • Refinery29 "Apartment Therapy is a trusted, go-to resource for many of us--and now it's a book. Apartment Therapy Complete and Happy Home is a must-have coffee table tome that shines a light on the seemingly lost art of homemaking."
  • Lonny "The most definitive title from the blog that started a digital design phenomenon is a can't miss. Filled with helpful tips, inspiring photos, and approachable advice, it illuminates the design process for recreational designers who want to turn the everyday into something beautiful."
  • Traditional Home "The brains behind the always clever and creative Apartment Therapy website bring their expertise to the printed page with this value-loaded guide to finding and making a livable and personal home. Tips on choosing colors, floor plans--and even light bulbs--along with practical organizing and cleaning pointers make this a must-read."
  • Every Day with Rachael Ray "Even if she has the perfect house, there are great ideas to be had in [Apartment Therapy's] new book."
  • Houston Chronicle "Ryan and Apartment Therapy's executive editor, Janel Laban, have co-written a book that digs deep into the nitty-gritty of creating a home--the art of turning a few rooms full of furniture into a well-designed, livable, put-together space."
  • Detroit Home "Readers will find all the tools needed to find, make, and maintain a suitable home. Whether you're a seasoned homeowner looking to freshen up or organize your lair, or a first-time homeowner, this book might be just the ticket for taking your living space up a notch or two in the design department."
  • Emily Henderson "Useful, pretty and full of information . . . It's easy enough to pick up and read 5 minutes at a time, and pretty enough to pick up and not even read a word."
  • The Atlanta Journal-Constitution "In Maxwell Ryan and Janel Laban's newest and most comprehensive book, they offer practical ideas for setting up, organizing and living in whatever place you call home. The three-part book first helps you understand and evaluate your space and your personal style. In section two, you begin to train your eye by looking at 75 of the most well-styled rooms in the country. Finally, a guide to cleaning, repairing and room-by-room organizing helps you maintain your happy home all year-long."
