I recently devoured best-selling author, Chris Madden’s latest book, The Soul of a House: Decorating with Warmth, Style and Comfort. I shouldn’t have been surprised by how much I liked it, the photographs and her approach. For, I’ve been a fan for a very, long time.
In my 20s, single and living in Dallas, TX, I bought her book, A Room of Her Own. Perhaps you’ve read it too. It became something of a manifesto for gracious living to me and I have continually refered to it over the years and collected numerous other books by Chris, such as Bedrooms and Getaways.
But, here’s where it became a little more personal. Or at least a little more interesting to me.
