The Comforts of Home: Thrifty and chic decorating ideas for making the most of what you have (Hardcover)
Small changes can make a big difference to your home—refresh your rooms and discover the true meaning of comfort.
The Comforts of Home is a book that enters into the spirit of how we want to live now, at a time when excess is no longer desirable. Author Caroline Clifton-Mogg puts a welcoming and beautiful haven within everyone's reach. The first section, The Elements, extols the joys of an orderly haven, covering both decorative aspects such as textiles and finishing touches, and practical topics such as storage and cleaning. The second section, The Rooms, shows how to create a home that's inviting and easy to live in – from the welcoming hallway, to the cozy kitchen, comfortable living room, satisfying study, practical bathroom and peaceful bedroom – through to the garden. The Comforts of Home offers clever decorating ideas that rely on imagination and style rather than a deep purse and suggests ways of making the most of what we have to put the heart back into our homes.
