5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational and informative, 3 Aug. 2010
This review is from: The Comforts of Home (Hardcover)
The Comforts of Home is the latest book from journalist and author Caroline Clifton-Mogg. She advocates making the most of what you have, finding inspiration via window shopping and rejigging what you already own to create livable spaces which you and your guests both feel at home in. A manifesto which is very timely this current era of austerity.

It's all about getting the basics right, with the first part of the book is dedicated to "The Elements" necessary to form well run-household. From the linen cupboard to the pantry Caroline suggests de-cluttering, organising, and getting into the nitty gritty of cleaning. There are even helpful hints on how to make your own natural cleaning products and a list of store cupboard staples. The second part, "The Rooms" tackles head on the individual challenges of each room which are aspirationally described as the "peaceful bedroom" and the "practical bathroom".

I was surprised to see the photo on the cover of this book as I'd seen it before in "Easy Elegance" byAtlanta Bartlett, page 83. The very same photo. It doesn't mean this book by CCM isn't good but one wonders why different authors use the same photos in different books. It's intriguing to say the least...
