They need to be flexible - a space for working and relaxing, for entertaining, eating and sleeping, for family and pets. Whether you are a first-time buyer or an experienced home-owner, you will be interested in ideas for your home. How can you enhance its original features or add your own stamp of individuality? What colours will work best, what type of floor will you have? How will you display your pictures, and will you conceal everything in cupboards, or have it all on show? Will you choose minimalist simplicity or ordered chaos; traditional and classic, or modern and experimental?Whether you've considered having a fire in a glass jar, a new window placed high up in a wall or an outside dining room, this fascinating book answers all your questions and more. A unique and inspiring sourcebook of ideas, Stafford Cliff has put together over 1000 stunning photographs to delight, amaze and provide all the inspiration you will need to make the home of your dreams.
