What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Book Tour: The Happy Home Project
Renovating her own kitchen within its existing footprint in an eco-friendly way was the project that gave Nayar the biggest feeling of accomplishment while she was on her quest for a happier home. One way you can improve your own kitchen without cabinet demolition is to follow the philosophy of Vastu. In a nutshell, it's an ancient Indian science that promotes physical and spiritual health via design. The sunlight-grabbing, east-facing windows here maximize prana (an energy analogous to chi in feng shui). There is a lot more to Vastu than this, but for that you'll have to read the book.
