The Home Edit by Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin


I borrowed The Home Edit from my local library. I had to wait for it as it had a months-long wait list. Once I had the book, I was allowed to keep it for only two weeks due to the high demand. That said, I don’t understand the big deal about this book. It was fun to read and esthetically pleasing, but the concepts were nothing new. Nothing I didn’t know about before.

The book is divided in three sections: The Edit, The Assembly and The Upkeep. Each concept is clearly explained, down to giving step-by-step instructions.

The photography is truly gorgeous. We even get a peek inside Gwyneth Paltrow’s children’s uber-organized play room.

If you love to own decor-type books, then this book will look very good on your coffee table because each and every page is glossy and chic. But if you are like me, (a bit mystified) you may want to borrow it from the library first.

I’m not sure why I didn’t fall in love with this book, but please don’t let my opinion hinder you because I’m pretty sure my opinion is in the minority.

Thanks for stopping by!
