Making Your Living Space a Refreshing Home

EXCELLENT! This book was exactly what I needed! I'm not gifted with a homemaking instinct. Emilie packed in this book hundreds of practical ideas that I could use to transform my house into a home and to make it a refuge for my entire family. She gives tips on decorating, organizing, hospitality, nurturing your family through your home, celebrating, creating a respite from the stresses of the world, and more. Easy to read, and easy to pick up and put down, the book is divided into very small, easily digestible sections. Her decorating style isn't mine, but her tips are so universal that it doesn't matter. She gives concrete examples of how to incorporate her advice regardless of whether you live in your custom designed dream home, a small apartment, or anything in between. She invites you into her home through her stories and pictures, and through that I can just imagine what it must be like to be a guest in her home. Definitely something I would like to model! This book would be a perfect gift to a first-time home owner. I really recommend it if you, like me, are seeking to add beauty, love and hospitality to your home. Thank you so much, Emilie, for addressing exactly what I have been seeking advice on for quite some time!

Beginning of a wonderful friendship--

I found this book at a bookstore on sale and I love country decorating so bought it. That was about seven years ago and have worn the book out almost , so buying a new one today. Since that booksale I have bought more than thirteen books of Emilie's and have enjoyed every one of them ,some more than others but never the less I am still a big fan of Emilie's. Have learned so much from her books in decorating, cooking, and worshiping our Lord. As others have said she is a classy lady and so much of her goes into her books----Try it---you will not be disappointed-----

Excellent - a must read for those who love their home!

As always Emilie Barnes has once again written a wonderful book! Welcome Home reminds us that as women it is our responsibility and privelege to create a refuge for our family and loved ones. Welcome Home encourages one to create your home into a place of beauty, where our loved ones can be nourished, encouraged and find peace and acceptance.The artwork is beautiful and suggestions for entertaining are excellent! This book would be a wonderful gift for a new bride, house warming gift or a special gift just for you! Thank you Emilie for all the wonderful books you have blessed us with. God Bless!

Emilie, you classy lady--you just get better with time!

Some of the pictures in this book first appeared in a spread that Better Homes and Gardens published of the "Barnes Barn." It's obvious that Emilie and her husband not only enjoy making their home colorful, comfortable, and beautiful, but also a place that they can't wait to share with others. While my personal decorating style is more streamlined than Emilie's, I share her love of company and hospitality. Hope you will, too. . .


I received this book last Christmas as a gift and I took it on a trip and read the whole thing before I put it down. I have areas highlighted so I can go back time and time again for ideas. Emilie is a wonderful author and I would highly recommend this book for anyone who has an interest in their home and their family's lifestyle.
