by Deana Murphy
Designing for the King is not your normal interior design book, and we are not talking about feng shui, what the book talks about is designing on a spiritual level for the way the person lives and what they do in the design area.
This book, filled with scripture, which enhances the concept of the design set forth by the author, is a unique approach to interior design that anyone can try.
The book comes from an approach that is central to the person’s space, and not a design the designer likes, but designed for the way the client lives, with a spiritual component that is refreshing and worth considering when doing any design.
Designing is not about the material goodies, but more about creating a tranquil space for the rest and comfort of the people. As the author sates, “It is through love that the agreement, respect, patience, loyalty, and integrity will seamlessly flow. So we can say a family on one accord births the awakening of designing with purpose. But this cannot be accomplished without the underpinning of Scripture.”
A home should be a place of peace and emotional sanctuary that breeds closeness of the family. The quotes and scriptures bring this concept home in Designing for the King.
This reviewer gives Designing for the King a four star rating and a must read if the reader is considering changing their living space.
