shelter books

fair warning... rant ahead:

i will admit it. i get really tired of people wanting their homes to look like the houses photographed in books and magazines. and i get tired of most of the books and magazines putting out more and more pages of houses that look more or less the same. i know, dwell has its style, house beautiful has its-- but very few of those houses have the solid stamp of their inhabitants planted right in the middle of those photographs. mostly we are seeing (gorgeous) houses with very little PERSONALity. as beautiful as they are, i want something else: i want zing! i want creativity that is not professional! i want PERSONAL love of color and PERSONAL objects and PERSONAL sense of style.

i want to see how other people do what i am trying to do: create a home that suits and reflects me and my family.

don't you?
