What I love about this book is how it breaks down the relationship between our home and our happiness. It's no secret that our home makes us happy, and in turn our happiness makes our home, and this book points out the connection in a way that is relatable and doable. Plus, it's a reminder that perfection is totally boring - the most interesting homes are 'flawed' yet completely compelling and inviting." - Emily Henderson, stylist, TV personality, and blogger"Looking past trends and decor for show, Sage Living goes deeper to explore how our homes help us connect, entertain, create, celebrate and grow with our friends and family." - Nathan Williams, Editor-in-Chief of Kinfolk magazine"

Sage's prose is maddening, however. It's syntax is so flowery it's distracting. It reads more like she is selling a product with her hyperbole than describing specifics in the homes.
An editor should take the fall here. She ends sentences with prepositions, misplaces modifiers, etc. Or, like on pg 81, there is a bowl described that is not visible in the layout. I would have also liked to have more pictures even if that meant fewer featured homes to get a more intimate look at these spaces.
Overall, I am glad I bought this book, appreciate the cheerful, clean aesthetic, but felt increasingly annoyed at the prose.
I found many interiors to be repetitious, even though the author was covering a compleatly different persons home. In a way it challenges you, I guess. You think you are very ingenious with your decor, only to realize unimaginable amounts of people all over the globe adorn their homes in such a manner as yours. Honestly made me only want to re-explore my space and make it more personal and not so, clichè, maybe. Thank you for that!
