FOR THE WHIMSICAL AT HEART!

Tracy Porter has a flair all her own & you will want to make it yours! I love her eccentric but fun style! Caution: not for the traditionalists! Even if you have a classic design style you can borrow tips and ideas to accent your style- something for everyone in this book- you should really enjoy seeing what she has done with everyday objects. I found myself saying 'why didnt i think of that'?!

It's a dream even for a French woman

I absolutely loved this book in spite of the fact I'm French and I sometimes must search words I don't understand in the dictionnary. Tracy Porter's ideas are incredible and a little crazy, but as I'm an artist and a designer too, I think I'm almost as crazy as she is, but it's very pleasant to find someone who go further in the crazyness. Her joy of life brought me a lot, at a time I had troubles in my inspiration, because of family problems, political difficulties (I love USA and it's not well seen in France these times). I already wanted to move to USA before but by seeing all her funny and sympathitic animals, it convinced me more. People in Paris have lost their fantasy, I think. Suddenly, I thought, I'm not alone... Well, it's a book about love. Everything in it is about love and it makes us feel so good.Thanks Tracy.Yael from Paris

A REFRESHING DELIGHT - A REMINDER TO DREAM

Having been a long time fan of designer Tracy Porter's enchanting products, I had the pleasure of curling up with her first book DREAMS FROM HOME over a relaxing weekend. How refreshing to read a book of such honesty that captures the spirit of dreaming and taking risks. Having moved from the city to the country to start her design business, Tracy shares an inside look of the changes and challenges that she and her husband faced to follow their dreams. The photography in this book is completely inspirational filled with Tracy's signature layered look. Tracy shares personal tales of how they transformed their 100-year old stone farmhouse into a place of comfort. She shares decorating and entertaining tips without being preachy or too instructive. What makes this book even more intriguing is the way in which Tracy weaves in personal stories - from her love for her grandmother to her family's Easter celebration to a suprise birthday party for her husband in an abandoned silo! This book is fun, inspiring, and reminds us all to dream and play and live life to its fullest. DREAMS FROM HOME is a must have for anyone who dares to dream!

Tracy Porter is having it all and in her own way!

Finally, a visually stimulating and inspiring book that is fun to read. Everyone I've given this book to has enjoyed reading it cover to cover. How refreshing to see a designer that doesn't just rehash the same old traditional style but instead allows her style to evolve. Tracy Porter doesn't try to set some unattainable standard for how one should live, instead she encourages you to "try on" everything you love. Mixing passions with personal style is what it's all about. I found Tracy Porter to be a young and daring spirit and an inspiration for more than decorating my home. Her self made choices of choosing travel over college, moving to the middle of nowhere (Princeton, Wisconsin), starting a business in a chicken coop days after getting married and now running an international design company from somewhere other than NY or LA, makes me think this one is in control of her destiny. She is definitely finding a way to have it all and in her own way and unlike so many other designers, she's not a snob. If you weren't already longing for life at peace in the country, you will be now!

Enchanting........

Delighted...entertained...amused.....captivated. Just a few words to describe how I felt after reading this book. The photographs are lovely and the text engaging. Tracy Porter is a true inspiration.
