“Your home and the way it’s designed is integral to your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.”

Create a home that nurtures your family and reflects your personal style, space needs, and taste. With a little do-it-yourself gumption and some proven design principles, you can learn to make your dream home a reality.

Inside you’ll find:

  • The four elements of a sanctuary and how to use them to create a functional, stylish, and welcoming space.
  • Beautiful photography that illustrates how any space can embody elements of a sanctuary.
  • Questions to help you evaluate your current home design and apply the concepts in each section.

Professional designers Tonya Olsen and Deboni Sacre will walk you step-by-step through your project—from the “before” (including budgeting and planning) to the beautiful “after.” No matter what your budget is or how hopeless your space may seem, you’ll soon discover that any home can become a sanctuary.
