Home by design:

Transforming your house into home by Sarah Susanka. This was my second time reading this book and I read it more carefully this time. It's about home design, specifically the details that make a house interesting and homelike. It considers things like the long view through the house as you enter the front door, when the design should be symmetrical or asymmetrical, mouldings and trim and different kinds of windows.

I liked this book, but would not recommend it to most people because it is quite involved and I think all but a few would find it rather boring. It would, however, be helpful to people who want to change their house from a box-like set of rooms to something homier and would like to know what things they could change.
