Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
The simple home is calm and uncluttered, with each item carefully chosen. Mark and Sally Bailey believe that good design means furniture and decoration that is useful, durable and honest. In the first part of the book, they explore calm Colors, Zen-inspired simplicity, and reclaimed or ethically sourced Materials, while Craft embraces the artisan's skill. Comfort means cozy textiles and warm wood, while tips from the Natural Cleaning chapter will nurture your home. Furniture is often multi-functional, and Curating Your Home looks at arranging your cherished collections. The Baileys then turn to Simple Spaces, showing you how to create welcoming Entrances, versatile Cooking and Eating spaces, Living Rooms with a great mix of personal items and adaptable furniture, soothing Bedrooms and tranquil Bathrooms. Finally, furnish Work Rooms with rescued desks and fittings.
* In tune with today's desire to buy well-made furniture and accessories that will last, and to create homes that are sustainable as well as stylish.
