This is a beautiful book by the publishers of Victoria magazine in USA. It is full of the most delightful photos of rooms that just whisper charm, beauty, peace and tranquility. It is exactly how I’d like my house to be.
I have to say the photography is simply stunning. There are quotes and ideas, tips for creating the look and using thrift shop finds and your own hand crafted pieces. At first glance I thought that the ethos of this book “Create private spaces where beauty and serenity coexist with functionality and practicality” might be a bit of a long shot with my mad animals and a clothes dumping, stuff trailing teenager, but really, the ideas are workable, even in a small area that can be just yours.
Gorgeous book even if you can work up enough enthusiasm to get off the sofa!
There is one copy to give away. All you have to do is leave a comment here saying what makes you feel peaceful.
For me it is my bed linen. I adore vintage bed linen and fresh sheets. It makes me just go ‘Aaaaah’ at the end of the day and feel great when I wake up.
