This Summer I tried finding the perfect home decor book, not only made for the coffee table, but something with amazing photography to inspire. I highly recommend Kelli Lamb’s Home With Rue because not only do you get these amazing photos to gawk at, but each explanation also gives a reason why the decor works.

When you see an amazing design, it transports you somewhere. Your heart beats louder and you want to be there…in someone else’s story, but Home With Rue will show you how your home can tell your own story.

Even though I can’t reveal all the beautiful secrets from this book, I don’t mind sharing a few nuggets with you.

Don’t be afraid to go against tradition!

The living rooms displayed in this amazing book, showed that what you grew up with as traditional home decor, doesn’t have to be YOUR decor.
