Overview

Accessible, joyful and anti-coffee table, Love Your Home is an inspiring, visually exciting sourcebook of ideas for modern living. A book with presence, and a fresh, lively approach, it explores the very essence of what constitutes a 'home', examining how we live now as well as looking to the future. Published in association with Habitat and with a foreword by Creative Director Tom Dixon, Love Your Home is packed with facts about design pieces and their creators, practical advice, tips, recipes, care instructions and trade secrets from the experts, as well as mini interviews with everyday people, revealing what they love most about their homes. 'Create Your Home' gives an overview of the cultural revolution that saw the birth of Habitat in 1964 and looks at how it has evolved over the last 40 years, while still reflecting the need for timeless, functional, well-designed objects. 'Indulge Your Home' illustrates ways to step up the comfort factor and make the everyday glamorous by injecting a bit of luxury into our surroundings. 'Dress Your Home' tackles decorating, showing how we can give our living spaces the stamp of our personalities through the use of colour, pattern and texture, and how to choose materials that give the home warmth and beauty. Through sections Eat, Lounge, Bathe and Sleep, 'Share Your Home' explores the home's role as a retreat and sanctuary as well as a hub for entertaining and a centre for family life. Lastly, highlighting new developments in technology, as well as lifestyle and cultural shifts around the world, 'Imagine Your Home' suggests what our homes of the future might be.
