Format: Hardcover
Although the women in the book have a high status, that shouldn't restrict any woman from having a room of her own. It doesn't take luxurious accomodations to create a room of her own. With some imagination and decorating sense, a woman should be able to create the atmosphere that she wants. I haven't purchased this book but have glanced through it at a furniture store. Yes, these women do have celebrity status, but they are still women. Self-fulfillment is to put yourself first and that is what part of the book is based on.

This book is lovely and speaks to women everywhere. When the pressures of life build up and we need to feel safe and warm, there is nothing like a space of our own with all our favorite things and colors in it. This book shares ideas and inspiration, from decorating small spaces and outdoor tents (really),to the positive changes that have come about when women honor themselves with their own haven. Buy this book if you are looking for a "deeper" decorating experience. Oh, just buy this book because it's wonderful!

Not what a 'typical' decorating book is but it was a wonderful book. If you are looking for a decorating book, it will give you ideas, but it is much more than that. This book is a look into other womens lives and personal spaces. It gives you ideas for your own personal space by showing you what some have done. Creativity is in all of us. The ideas and examples given in this book are fantastic. Your creativity will flow after reading this book and looking at all of the beautiful pictures.

I found this book under the category of interior design and I purchased this book for getting some ideas for my bedroom design. But what it presents is much more than any design book can offer! While it is true that the book does not contain many "ordinary women" profiles, it also shows that extraordinary women, no matter where they live, what their life styles or goals are, they are extraordinary because the way they viewed their lives and cherished their personal spaces.

Wonderful book! A friend of mine loaned me her copy, but I had to go out and buy one for myself. Beautiful photography and inside stories about women who were brave enough to carve out their own space and call it that, "Mine!'. Many women I know would love to find the courage to do this, but don't. We all need a little corner to call our very own. I have one now thanks to Ms. Casson Madden. I'm surrounded by items which inspire and motivate me to do, think, and be my best.

Although I read a tremendous amount, and purchase many books, I have never written an on-line review - until now. I just needed to let other women know what a very special book this is. Not only are the photographs beautiful, but the stories, and the women are inspirational. I have already begun purchasing copies as birthday gifts for all the women in my life!
