A masterclass and look book in one, The Home Edit is filled with bright photographs and detailed tips, from placing plastic dishware in a drawer where little hands can reach to categorizing pantry items by color (there's nothing like a little ROYGBIV to soothe the soul). Above all, it's like having your best friends at your side to help you turn the chaos into calm.

Lovely photos of Impractical Storage Solutions. It seems as if the goal of the author was to try and sell lots organizing baskets and acrylic boxes. I found nothing of practical value in this book. Showed closets and pantries of the Rich and celebrated film star Kingdom. Nothing useful for us normal types.

As another commenter said, glad I borrowed and didn't buy. Nice to look at but who really thinks that things will stay as photographed?? Looks like people spent a small fortune on crates, boxes etc. Looks like more wasted space than anything! sorry, I don't sort my books by colour!! Goofy and unrealistic!!!

This book — called “The Home EDIT”— ends with a picture of approximately 300 silk scarves, arranged by colour in clear plastic boxes. Presumably, getting it down to just 300 silk scarves is the result of some hard “editing” . . .

The rest of the book is just photos of packages of pencils and protein bars emptied into clear plastic boxes. Also a “Ball Room Closet” and Gwenyth Paltrow’s dungeon-like play room.

The most un-selfconsciously ironic book I have ever seen.

Thanks goodness I only borrowed it and I didn't pay for it.
It's not a very realistic book. It is full of pictures of organized house perfection that has been arranged by professionals for people who spent the money to hire them and or celebrities who did the same.
It is not very realistic for the plebians.
This book just makes me feel bad.

It's pretty... more like a magazine article than a book.

If you think Gwyneth Paltrow walks on water, spend your days organizing your Pinterest tabs, and like to organize your books according to the colour of the spines -- hurray, this book is for you!

For everyone else who just wants to organize their basement, or wants to tame the pile of papers on your desk, or just needs know where they left the can opener, don't bother with this overproduced coffee table book. It's all style and no substance.

For those of us who have a lot of stuff that brings us joy! And want to keep it. In a totally organized way.
