Canadian Interior Designer Shannon Acheson Shows How to Create the Home of Your Dreams

‘Home Made Lovely’ Releases September 8, 2020

WATERLOO – August 24, 2020 – Home: it’s where you have spent much of your time in 2020. It’s where the heart is, where your family is, but it’s also a greater reflection of who you are and what you value. Shannon Acheson, Canadian interior designer, editor and designer of the lifestyle company and blog, teaches readers how to make their physical homes a reflection of their greatest values in her first book, Home Made Lovely: Creating the Home You’ve Always Wanted (Bethany House, 9780764235375), releasing September 8, 2020.

Home Made LovelyWith Canadians having spent more time at home than ever before due to COVID-19, Home Made Lovely is full of timely tips to make home a comforting, safe and welcoming space. Acheson meets readers right where they are on their home-decorating journey, helping them share the peace of Jesus with family members and guests. “For me, a comfortable home is one tangible way to love the people within it,” says Acheson. “It’s a way to say, ‘Come home. You belong here.’”

In the book, Acheson helps women take on the task of redefining their homes and explains that Home Made Lovely is a mind-set and that decorating should be about those who live in the home, rather than making your home into a magazine-worthy spread.

In Home Made Lovely, Shannon will come alongside readers to:

  • Decorate in a way that suits your family’s real-life;
  • Declutter in seven simple steps;
  • Perform a house blessing to dedicate your home to God;
  • Express thankfulness for your current home and what you already have;
  • Brush up on hospitality with more than 20 actionable ideas that will make anyone feel welcome and loved in your home

Home Made Lovely is different than other decorating books because I believe that decorating our homes should be about those that reside in them, not creating a magazine-worthy spread. That before we decorate anything, we should first consider ourselves, our family, and our heavenly Father,” noted Acheson.
