Book Description Today’s young women are smarter, more creative, and more independent than ever before. But even though sushi has pushed meatloaf aside and wine tastings have replaced Tupperware parties, home is still where the heart is. Whether alone or with friends, spending time in a place that truly reflects who you are can be rewarding, relaxing, even exhilarating—it’s up to you. Sanctuary, soiree space or just a special place to get crafty—with this inventive and cost- conscious guide for the modern girl, you can create an environment that is truly “you.” Try: ? Colorwashing and stenciling an accent wall ? Growing an indoor herb garden ? Creating a home spa, complete with homemade treats for body and mind ? Putting together a one-of-a-kind scrapbook ? Throwing a retro game night, a Stitch ‘n’ Bitch, or a not-quite-proper English tea From the paint on the walls to the parties you throw, No Place Like Home provides creative inspiration no matter where you live or what your style. From Publishers Weekly A nonfiction addition to the Chick Lit library, this small book aims to help single women-about-town turn their homes into hip, happy nests. Author Kehm jumps on the post- 9/11 "nesting" trend and manages to hit every other fashion that this demographic has recently embraced, from knitting to poker to home decoration, all in a breezy style. Occasionally, she’s too silly, as when she claims that "G-sales" is slang for garage sales these days or when she presents a quiz that purports to find readers’ style, but only provides stereotypes to choose from. Kehm’s book will work best for newly independent adults, such as recent college graduates, since older readers won’t find basic information such as "When you find a place you like, think about if you’ll feel safe there" helpful. Recipes for environmentally safe home cleaning projects, along with tips on houseplants and do-it-yourself spa products are mostly culled from other books or Web sites, but are clearly and winningly presented here. The advice on crafting largely consists of encouraging readers to try their hand at it and suggesting other resources. A selection of at-home gatherings, including a wine tasting and board game night, are fun, if not especially original. All in all, this slim volume is like a greatest hits of the female demographic non-fiction titles list and should be popular with its target audience.
