About the Book.
“Home-ownership and home-decor are intimately connected, but this is the first time I’ve seen the two subjects converge in a single, holistic guide that will leave readers equal parts informed and inspired. This is quite possibly the most pragmatic home guide you’ll ever come across, and it’s pretty enough for your coffee table!”—Justina Blakeney, designer and New York Times best-selling author of The New Bohemians
Whether you are shopping for a first home, renting a new apartment or are searching for smart and affordable ways to redecorate or reorganize, THE NEW YORK TIMES: RIGHT AT HOME is the user’s manual for homeownership. From New York Times Real Estate columnists and home experts Ronda Kaysen and Michelle Higgins, RIGHT AT HOME is filled with information and tools on how to buy, decorate, organize and care for your home—whether that’s a two-bedroom apartment you’re renting for a year or the house where you plan to live out your life.
Kaysen and Higgins have spent more than two decades interviewing experts and demystifying all aspects of home buying and care. This guide, drawn from their work, will be with you at every turn, whether you’re unpacking the kitchen for the first time, moving in with your significant other, or figuring out what to do with all those baby bottles and sippy cups now that the last child is out of diapers and the cabinets are bursting. Including pro tips from experts such as Marie Kondo, Bunny Williams and Justina Blakeney, and featuring an annual home maintenance checklist, RIGHT AT HOME is the indispensable guide that you will return to again and again.
