Share Your Inspired Room {Book Launch Giveaway!}

Happy The Inspired Room Book Launch day! I’ve been sharing my house and rooms here on The Inspired Room for the past eight years and I have to say, I’ve loved every minute of it. Can’t stop, won’t stop! I feel so honored and humbled to have had the opportunity to share here on the blog, and now to have my very own books that you can hold in your hand and set on your coffee tables! It has been a real thrill to publish TWO books this year! I’ve poured so much of my heart into each one and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them. <3

But now that they are both out into the world (and hopefully hanging out at your house) I would really LOVE to see YOUR favorite room in YOUR house! As a part of my book launch festivities for The Inspired Room, I’m hoping that each of you will share your own inspired rooms and enter a fun celebratory giveaway!

Many of my blogger friends shared on their blogs last week and many more who will share their rooms over the next week or two. I would love if YOU would join in, too? (And you don’t have to have a blog, yay!)


You don’t have to have a blog to play along. There are three ways to share. 1) You can post on your own blog, 2) Create a YouTube video, or (even if you don’t have a blog) 3) You can share on my FREE community home-sharing site called Home Love Stories.

Just upload a few photos of your own inspired room and share what that space means to you. You can tell how the room has evolved or share a before and after, or tell your favorite stories about your room.

Today is the official publication date, so I’m very excited to celebrate and launch it into the world! If you get a copy of the book or see it in your local store, would you take a photo of it and share it with us online? I would love to see it sitting on your coffee table or on your bookshelf. :) Tag me on Instagram! Use the hashtag #theinspiredroom and tag me so I can find your photos. I’m so excited to see the book on your coffee table or shelf!

Also, if you like the book, I would love if you would add a positive review to Amazon or Barnes and Noble. It really helps others to see encouraging reviews when they are deciding what to buy, so I thank you in advance.

If you don’t yet have a copy, I’ve been told you can now get The Inspired Room book in any Barnes & Noble store, and of course, you can order it online from B&N or Amazon. I really hope you enjoy it and that it will earn a spot on your bookshelf or coffee table.

Thanks again to everyone who has so kindly shared about the book already. I’ll be back Monday to show you my Thanksgiving Table! Ah, my girls and I had so much fun with it. See you tomorrow!

    I can’t wait until my book arrives. Love the Tolkien quote. Does anyone know where can I get a copy of a poster featuring it?

    • Melissa @ The Inspired Room

      Hi Kathy!

      My daughter hand wrote that quote for the book and I think we might be able to make it available as a download or poster, let me find out and if we can I’ll post it! :)

    Hi Melissa, I have your new book and I will say it has been a great read. You write as if you are speaking to one person it is so much fun and adding the pictures of Jack and Lily is such a treat ( there will be no living with Jack now LOL) I have gotten so much more out of what it is like to move into a new home whether it is the first home second or fourth. I am in the process of moving into my second home, and I will take all the wisdom and experience you share with your experiences and I WILL LOVE THE HOUSE I HAVE. It will be different maybe perhaps bitter sweet and none the less a new and exciting experience. I hope if I learn how to download share some pictures. I now have your book on my only big piece of furniture left in my living room and it looks GREAT. Take care pet Jack and Lily be well and nothing but good luck with the new book. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Melissa @ The Inspired Room

      Thank you, Joanne. I’m glad you enjoyed the book (ha! yes about Jack!). Best to you in your move to your new home! I hope you’ll be able to share some pictures. Thank you so much! :)

    We live in Australia so I asked my hubby to order me a copy for Christmas……now I feel like a child waiting for Christmas to arrive. I received your book last year also & loved it!

  5. Amanda Cleckler
