Diary of Your Home: Ideas, Tips, and Prompts for Recording and Organizing Everything

This stylish home journal, complete with practical tips, checklists, and list prompts, is an indispensable resource for running the home and a keepsake from a life well lived there.

This unique journal will be shipped to customers in one of three different colors at random.  The most beloved homes create some joyful chaos—lively game nights or art projects in progress—as well as plenty of relaxation and comfort. Having one place to record all of your home’s details, from essential phone numbers to perennial to-dos, makes it easier to keep organized so you’ll have more time to enjoy the day-to-day. It is also a sanity saver, helping you preserve information that would otherwise get lost over the years, such as the exact paint color on your living room walls or the year your roof was installed.

A practical organizer and guided journal in one, Diary of Your Home offers prompts and lined pages for noting essential information, from your handyperson’s phone number to your bedroom’s dimensions. Covering topics as diverse as furnishings, repairs, landscaping, and entertaining, this book also encourages you to preserve your family’s memories and traditions, such as heirloom recipes and favorite activities. Diary of Your Home includes space for decor wish lists and mood boards, project pages with to-dos, schedules, and budgets.

Full of prompts, charts, and diagrams for list-making, record-keeping, and brainstorming; space for jotting notes, sketches, and memories or pasting in images; and a pocket for gathering business cards and swatches, Diary of Your Home is an indispensable resource and keepsake.
