Anthony Lawlor is known as the architect who brings soul to design. His acclaimed book The Temple in the House showed how to and the sacred in architecture. Now, in A Home for the Soul, he reveals how our houses and apartments can become havens of inspiration and renewal."From the moment we're born, we seek to find home." Lawlor says, "Yet, despite this primal longing, our dwelling places often disappoint us." In A Home for the Soul, we discover that the depth and meaning we seek is right in front of us if we but have the eyes to see. Lawlor teaches us how to develop a consciousness about the spiritual possibilities inherent in our interior surroundings; he shows how to recognize the sacred in material form. "Each time we bathe," says Lawlor, "we not only cleanse the body, we refresh the spirit. Each time we open our front door, we enter a universe of connection and signifcance."Lawlor leads us on a journey through each room of the house, opening our vision to hidden possibilities. We discover, for example, how a stove expresses the transforming power of nature, how clothes closets reveal our inner personalities, and how home of        ces display our talents. Lawlor shows us the mythological and archetypal meanings within the common objects of daily life--such as a bed, a bathtub, a pair of shoes, or a loaf or bread.The author also offers practical suggestions for arranging or building soulful homes. He explains how to use wood, tile, brick, and stone to express qualities of the spirit and how to use furniture and personal objects as allies in creating meaning.Finally, Lawlor shows us how to construct a Mandala of the Soul--a wood cabinet with compartments for housing the symbols of home that have particular personal meanings for each reader.        In these pages, we come to understand how all the rooms we live in can form a sacred place of wholeness, a home that cares for and uplifts the totality of mind, body, and soul.

A library book???????????? I bought it as a gift. Thank you very little.

If you are looking for lots of ideas for floor plans, design or decorating ideas, this is not the book you want. If you are looking for a book that will help you create a space that feels like "home," this book will help you think about what that means in terms of your space.
Lawlor takes an unusual approach to his subject by first examining each living area with respect to the Greek gods typically responsible for that space. Before one dismisses this as a New Age thing, study the ideas behind the activities represented by that god. It's simply his "hook" to get the reader to continue on, to think about what this space is intended to do in the routine of life. As a storyteller, I was thrilled to read of his ideas for planning one's living area, which should be a space for stories, music and social interaction. He does not ignore the ever-present television, but he does suggest planning for lively, involved social interaction, which we all crave but often lack in our busy lives.
He does give general suggestions for room layouts if you are in the planning stages of construction, and closes each chapter with his vision of the ideal layout for that living area. He suggests materials, colors, furnishings and accents for each specific area, so that if you are looking to change existing space, you'll find that, too. Anyone who places a priority on books as a major furnishing component will win me over every time, but his vision of planning for a home, not a house, has appeal as well.

This is less of a home book and more of a ... spiritual book? And not a very good one at that.

"The round shape of an apple reflects the completeness of the soul." The sentence after that compares the apple to a body part. Seriously? What does this even have to do with a home? And the number of times they use the word "soul" is just absurd.

I gave it two stars for the photos - I would almost call them photo vignettes of homes or details of homes. Good photos that are fairly timeless. If there had been more photos and less text I would probably have given it more stars but to me the text really just ruined the book and since 3/4 of the book is text... well you get the point.

Obviously there are some people who liked this book but I was not one of them.

This book is beautifully illustrated and great value for money. The author explains how he has arrived at this work after a serendipitous path in his youth. After creating his own 'special place' in which the burgeoning youth felt secure enough to externalise the process of growth, the adult has now presented the formula for creating our own 'special place', merely by making us conscious of what makes us feel comfortable. A recent and equally wonderful book by Richard Patton entitled "The Autobiography of Jesus of Nazareth and the Missing Years" also takes us down the inner path of youth to establish a comfort zone in which the the adult can sally forth into the outer world. Although at face value these books appear poles apart, they are in fact kissing cousins. At their core, both attempt (and succeed) at creating a satisfying meal for the Soul. Depending on how substantial a meal you want - you takes yer choice! Definitely recommended.

This book is not for anyone who is looking for an interior design book. This book is strictly for the soul. We live in a world where we are in a rush to do everything. We rush to clean our homes, eat, bathe, etc. This book explains in detail what each room represents and how it aids in healing us within. Being in the moment of cleaning, cooking, cleansing, enjoying that cup of coffee in the morning, that sunset we take for granted. The joy of putting different elements in our homes and how it makes us feel within. Our home is a place for healing us within, rejuvenating us, that place to go for tranquility and get away from the madness. We have to stop regretting the past or worrying about the future and be in the moment. Doesn't matter how much money you have you can still create a place that you can truly enjoy and call a home. Get it "a home for the soul", not the body.

This book is a must have. As a result, I actually enjoy cleaning my home and no longer refer to it as a chore.

When I read A Home for the Soul, I was in awe of the author's ability to express the principles in architecture which deeply influence a person's spiritual growth. This book effected my life deeply. The more I read, the more inspired I became. I looked at the world differently, at my home differently, at my relationship with my environment. I highly recommend this book to anyone.

And unfortunately, I found it very disappointing. I will admit that I was more in the market for a design guide, but this is more of a thought guide -- ways to THINK about your home that will make it a more enjoyable place to live. Yet, the end of each section goes into extremely specific detail (down to measurements!) about the author's "ideal" room of that type (kitchen, bedroom, gathering room). The change was both jarring and off-putting for me.
I have owned several homes,never feeling quite at home.We bought our 100 year old 22 room farm house 7 years ago.This home was not feeling like home either.After reading this book I knew why.I had to make it our home.I recomend reading this book before buying or remodeling a home.It will save you so much time and money.If your soul feels at home,you are happy in that home.
