Simple life know-how to make your home to your taste
Seeing differently when viewing the same thing and space / Imagine changes in various places at home / Add green plants to bring life into your space / Find new uses for old things / Make your house look like a model house with some dollar store items / Empty your home to reveal your taste


Should you empty out your house according to the minimal life trend to find comfort and leisure? In that case, your home may no longer be a place of rest, but just a continuation of dry and boring life. Joy of Expressive Life shows you how to take care of your home using old items and nature rather than just emptying out. We recommend this book to those who want a simple but tasteful home, those who enjoy green interior, those who wanted to be a minimalist but found out that minimalism wasn’t right for them, and those who want to give a warm feeling to children’s room.

About the Author - Park, Yoonah

In mid 1990s, when international travel and fashion magazines were not very common, Park, Yoonah found interest in other cultures while reading foreign magazines at a used bookstore. She spent about 15 years in Australia, US, and Japan as a student, resident, and traveler. During that time, she learned and recorded each country’s language, culture, and wisdom. With this, she teaches English at university and companies, develops children’s English study material, and translates the bible.

As a working mom who is always running out of time, she works as a passionate creative director to share ideas on how to simply and beautifully display materials based on nature.
