Overview

In Handmade Home Mark and Sally Bailey of destination homeware store Baileys Home & Garden turn their attention to the real-life homes of artists, craftspeople, and designers or those who collect their work. Living with paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and textiles crafted by hand will give your home an originality that is welcome in this age of mass production. Mark and Sally start by taking a look at The Elements: Color, Texture, Space, and Display. Next, The Homes is an inspirational survey of the private spaces of those who love to create or live with handmade pieces. From the modern country house of a Finnish architect to the converted Dutch barn of a talented designer/painter couple, and Mark and Sally Bailey's own home in the depths of rural England, each of the locations show how handcrafted pieces bring variety and beauty to every corner of the home. Handmade Home is a celebration of handcrafted objects made with love, care, and devotion, showing how such items can be the inspiration for decorative schemes full of originality and soul.
