Eugene, Oregon—June 4, 2015—Harvest House Publishers is pleased to announce that Love the Home You Have by first time author Melissa Michaels, which released March 31, 2015, reached No. 2 on the New York Times Fashion, Manners and Customs list for May. 

Much more than a décor book, Love the Home You Have is an invitation for readers to fall in love with the home they have and embrace the gifts of life, people and blessings right where they are. Michaels admits to living in six homes before she was ready to let go of her pursuit of a perfect home somewhere else and embrace the one she already had. Along her journey of moving to different homes, Michaels discovered creative and affordable ideas to find beauty and contentment in the places she lived, which she features on her popular blog The Inspired Room (

Michaels reminds readers that they can transform the way they view their home and that finding satisfaction and happiness is about perspective. Our homes should be a genuine reflection of our lives, hearts and desires, not a replica or a duplication of what we see online or in a magazine. 

Melissa Michaels is the author of The Inspired Room (, a popular decorating blog on the web for the past eight years. The Inspired Room reaches over 600,000 readers each month and was voted Better Homes and Gardens Readers’ Favorite Decorating blog in 2014 and in 2015. She (along with her home and The Inspired Room) has been featured in top publications and magazines online and in print. Melissa lives with her husband and family near Seattle, Washington.
