The long-awaited home décor bible by the beloved design blogger

"Thank you," wrote a reader to Design*Sponge creator Grace Bonney, "for teaching me that houses don't have to be frumpy and formal. They don't have to be matchy-matchy or rigidly modern." They can just be comfy and unique and reflect who you are, no matter how small your budget or space.

. Step-by-step tutorials on everything from stripping and painting furniture to hanging wallpaper and doing your own upholstery
