Today’:s average homeowner has a more discerning approach to home decoration and interior design than ever before. Even on a very low budget, a few simple elements can produce amazing results, so there is no excuse for living in a place that doesn’:t work for you. A mix of old and new works well if done sympathetically: getting a balance of elements is a very important factor. The Home Modernised offers a detailed insight into the different levels of potential commitment, work and finance you might face, whether you are planning a cost-effective decorative project or a radical transformation.
The book is divided into three sections:
The Home Transformed is illustrated with showcase homes chosen specifically to enhance an understanding of all that is the home modernised. This chapter represents the core of the book. Each section addresses a different aspect of modernisation: from a decorative angle, the simple use of colour, finishes, lighting and furniture can drastically change your interior and help update its features. The reorganisation of the space can revolutionise your home, and extending your space can provide that extra work room, or whole additional floor.
The Home Dissected, focuses on the different elements of modernisation and specific ideas to help you achieve this more effectively. Ranging from floors and walls, staircases, windows and doors, to lighting, storage, display and furniture, each section includes a wide variety of illustrated ideas relating closely to he previous chapter.
The final chapter, Zones for Modern Living, breaks down the home into zones, for relaxing, sleeping, bathing, cooking, eating and working. Each reinforces the idea that the modern home is no longer a set of fixed rooms with distinct functions, but rather an integrated living space.
An extensive directory of resources puts the finishing touches to this thorough home interiors resource book.
