Creating an Inspired Home: An E-book by Layla Palmer

Yahoo! It’s finally done!

You know I love writing about decorating and design- but my first e-book, “Creating an Inspired Home”, is about much more than just another pretty space.

It’s about injecting and reflecting your spirit throughout every nook and cranny of your home.
It’s about conquering design-related fear by harnessing your
imagination and enthusiasm.
It’s about surrounding yourself with
feel-good rooms, and understanding why they work so that you don’t have to keep re-arranging your furniture or wasting money on things that don’t even fit.

Design can have such a positive impact on the way you live, which is exactly why it’s so important to create an atmosphere dedicated to you, and the ones you love.

Author, editor and entertaining expert, Matthew Mead wrote my Foreword…

…and I’m absolutely thrilled to have had the opportunity to get his stamp of approval on something that is so very near and dear to me.

“Creating an Inspired Home” is an interactive e-book, so as you actually flip through the pages- you’ll discover links leading to other pages, as well as to various websites that I love. You will also have the opportunity to highlight sections or quotes that you want to remember with a neat “note” feature. And, last but not least, you’ll even see me pop up every now and then in some short video segments as well. Here are some outtakes that didn’t make it into the book…

To get the book, you’ll need to download a free DNL reader. It’s sort of like Acrobat Reader, and ensures that the book will stay free from viruses. It is located on the “Download E-book” page at Once you’ve successfully downloaded the DNL reader, you can download the first few pages of the book at no charge. This is just to make sure you can actually view the book on your computer before you purchase it. A link to purchase the full book is included on the last page of the free preview pages.

And that’s it! :-)
