“Barbara Tammes has built a wonderful space for creating an unconditional life. Her castle in the clouds is an attractive and profound tool.” —Deepak Chopra, author of War of the Worldviews

“An inspiring tribute to the power and importance of your imagination. A book to cherish.” —Glamour magazine

"Why shouldn’t everyone have an imaginary happiness spa? Tammes thinks it’s such a great idea that she’s written a book telling us how to create one. The book begins with directions to three inner prefab castles readers can use while they are building their own custom relaxation mansions. Then she gives us blueprints for 22 “truly interior” spaces, along with the tools to decorate them as we wish. With whimsical illustrations by the author, this is a funfilled, inspirational gem." -Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight, February 2013
Longing for a retreat? A safe haven where you can disappear from the world for awhile?
