In her award winning book, Designing for the King, interior designer Deana Murphy delves into the heart and the home of the family. Can Christians integrate their faith into the elements of home design? How is the heart parallel to how we live at home? How can home design bring families closer together? What defines a lifestyle of peace and joy? When is this attainable? Deana has for sure taken home design to another dimension. “Whether you are a stay at home mom, business person, a student, an entrepreneur or an employee, Designing for the King will change your perspective of home living,” Deana says. “The principles I share in this book allows you to instantly grasp how to take both your life and your home from chaos to order giving it purpose simply by changing your thoughts, words, and actions,” explains Deana. In each chapter of Designing for the King, Deana guides the reader through the design process; first spiritually then naturally, justifying the value of designing with purpose and building on relationships, while adjusting spaces. Chronicling the lives of two families, with an unabridged transparency, Deana addresses the need for attacking, eliminating and avoiding chaos through the process of biblical guidance making home-living peaceful and secure for everyone. Deana includes chapters on ‘design-worship’ for an understanding that next to the users, the most important element of home design is the Lord. In Designing for the King, you will applaud Deana’s clear conviction of scriptural cites that supports her conclusions, and discover that her directions, solutions, tips and biblical wisdom are timely, relevant, profound and intuitive; appealing to a diverse readership in pursuit of order, peace, joy, unified family relations, and secure and restful habitations.
