Overview

This handsomely illustrated volume will inspire anyone longing for a quiet corner for contemplation. Part One explores how traditional rooms may be furnished, laid out, and decorated to optimize a peaceful ambience. Part Two provides advice on carving out quiet spots from “unseen” spaces like hallways or landings, or creating new ones through attic conversion. More radical options include building a getaway garden gazebo or a balcony with a view. Much has been written on how or where to relax, but this essential reference demonstrates how to create your new private oasis within the home by fully exploiting the potential of hidden spaces, even in the tiniest of rooms. Evocative pictures combine with practical advice to show you how to create your own “private place.”
