Summary

Transform your home with Tracy's signature style and spirited approach to comfortable living.

When Tracy Porter founded her company with a $5,000 loan from her parents, she never envisioned that eight years later it would be a $40 million business with products sold at thousands of retail stores.

In Tracy Porter's Home Style, Tracy demonstrates how to enliven rooms with old treasures and common objects. Lavishly illustrated, and brimming with inspiration, Tracy's book shows you how to reinvent your home with simple and creative ways to use paint, fabric, rugs, pillows, and even scents. Each chapter contains a multitude of valuable tips and rule-breaking ideas, and the Make & Create Guide for every featured project assures that you can adapt these projects to your own home. Tracy Porter's Home Style will help new and old fans alike create a warm and welcoming home.

Tracy has been featured on Oprah, E! Entertainment's Homes with Style, and in the pages of O Magazine, People, Good Housekeeping, and Victoria.
