Overview

In Harmonious Home, bestselling author and interiors expert Judith Wilson takes you to the heart of fuss-free living. Imagine a home that is easy to move through and visually connected, one with light switches in just the right places, and seamless storage that works day in, day out. Living quarters with a color palette that functions as well in the kitchen as in the bedroom, with rooms that are configured to match your lifestyle. Imagine a home that works as a whole, from top to bottom, front to back, a space conceived with one strong and simple vision. Harmonious Home is a guide to creating that streamlined home. Whether you live in an apartment or a house, the book points the way to evaluating and maximizing its potential. Part 1, Thoughts and Plans, is devoted to initial ideas, from setting a budget to examining the architectural bones you already have. Part 2, Bare Essentials, helps sort the practicalities, from perfectly sited heating and lighting, to visually cohesive materials and colors. Part 3, Space Specifics, homes in on a variety of space configurations, from small rooms to open-plan zones, proving that it's not square feet that count, but how you use them. Each section ends with a case study of a real home that demonstrates beautifully how the harmonious home works, visually and practically. Harmonious Home is the must-have source book for the well-planned home sanctuary. Filled with useful checklists to guide you through each thought process and inspirational photographs of soothing, cohesive interiors, it proves that, with early planning and a strong vision, easy living is within everybody's grasp.
