Product description


"I found it fascinating. The idea is that we often use our creativity to decorate our homes and we might also use our homes as places in which to do creative things -- cooking, sewing, painting etc, but Rattner has distilled dozens of studies and scientific research to come up with 48 ways in which we can boost our creativity by changing our decor at home." -- Mad About the House

"This is an excellent and original book on an unusual topic. It would be useful to anyone trying to solve problems or complete a creative project. Writing a book or illustrating a graphic novel? Solving programming or other analytical problems? Painting a picture or quilting a memory quilt? All of those activities can be assisted by being done in a more creative space." -- Diane Reviews Books

"I thought this was a book about interior design and it is, but it's more than that. It's a book on how to be more creative both by making your house more conducive to creative pursuits but also by what you can do personally to inspire creativity. The book is based on science and an explanation for each suggestion is given, backed by research or studies and it's all very fascinating." -- SMS Nonfiction Book Reviews

"The photographs shared in the book are amazing and give good ideas and suggestions to readers who are looking for ideas to do up their creative space with a good combination of comfort and style. The author gives worthy suggestions on how to unlock the hidden power of homes to increase creativity and to activate innovation. Reading this book and using the tactics and tips shared in it will help the reader to assess their needs, plan accordingly, exploit underutilized spaces, and make the home environment cozy and comfortable." -- Readers' Favorite

"This is an absolutely fantastic book. It's loaded with practical tactics and engaging commentary, alongside beautiful color photos. Each tactic includes suggested ways to boost creativity, along with supporting reasons for doing so and tips for implementation." -- Juror, Nonfiction Authors Association
