Library Journal Review

In her Spirit of the Home, Alexander gave an overview of principles one can use to create a restful, spiritual retreat from the stresses of everyday life. Here she focuses on how to use those principles, which include feng shui and space cleansing, in bedrooms and nurseries. Most helpful is her examination of the function of each room and specific directions for making it restful, which include evaluations of space, safety, color, scent, and sound. (c) Copyright 2010.
