Reclaim the real heart of the kitchen and turn it into the living, breathing centre of your home.
This is not a kitchen design book. It is about what a kitchen is – or should be.
Traditionally, the kitchen was a place of feminine nurturing and sustenance, a place of safety and magic in which culinary and psychological magic both took place. Sadly, nowadays we have lost balance in our homes. Many of us no longer have a hearth, a living fire. The heart of the home is all too often replaced by a status symbol of clinical modern design. As part of a superb series, Spirit of the Kitchen includes advice on:
How to bring out the potential of the room; considering its history, mythology and psychology.
• How to use colour, sound, scent and light in the room.
• Furnishings and decoration, creative storage and finishing touches.
• Simple rituals and blessings for the room – smudging, cleansing and rituals.
This beautifully illustrated full colour guide from Jane Alexander shows you how to put the heart back into your home.
