Book Description

14 April 2005 Mitchell Beazley Interiors
Whether the property you live in is large or small, in the town or the country, a flat or a mansion, you'll want it to feel uncluttered, spacious, bright, and airy. Space & Light provides solutions on how to achieve this quickly and inexpensively, and gives clever, practical examples of real homes that look fabulous as a result. Elements covers those key points of interior design that affect space and light in the home (colour, pattern, and texture, storage, furniture, mirror and glass, windows, and lighting), and takes a close look at practical examples. The chapter Ideas for Living is a room-by-room analysis examining the specific needs of each room and how to satisfy these without compromising on a feeling of light and air. Each "room" closes with a summary of the ideas covered by applying them to an annotated example. The final section has six real homes that show how these ideas have been brought to life, and how specific issues such as poor natural light or limited space have been addressed and resolved. The book is thoroughly practical throughout, with specific, easy-to-achieve ways to maximize space and light in the home.

More About the Author

Katherine Sorrell is a journalist and author who specialises in interiors, lifestyle and craft. She trained in news journalism and spent several years covering dog shows and jumble sales on a local paper before doing stints in TV research, sub-editing and even on a cartoon newspaper (brilliant but sadly short-lived). She finally found her niche when she took a job at Elle Decoration magazine, which led to a freelance career writing for many of the UK's leading interiors titles and an impressive range of books. After a very happy few years as features editor of Homes & Gardens magazine, Katherine downshifted in 2002 and now lives with her artist husband and their three children in Cornwall, where their Georgian house is decorated in an eclectic mix of antique, vintage and modern furniture.
