This books is a great read and its lively text has done much to make me want to get stuck in and revolutionise my home and garden. I found Diarmuid Gavin's writing particularly interesting and useful and am very much looking forward to his next book. The book looks great and has been beautifully designed and put together. Well done the publishers!
Laurence LLewelyn-Bowen and Diarmuid Gavin produce what seem to be on the face of it, incredibly incredible indoor and outdoor spaces. The designs inspired by real-life aspirations for real people who have to inhabit these spaces long after the camera has stopped rolling. Yet somehow as each brief unfolds itself, a way through the design maze is found and Laurence turns the suburban into the sublime in his own distinct way - these strikingly innovative and sometimes achingly beautiful spaces do not so much marry with the graphic and fluid outdoor spaces conceived by Diarmuid, but live in luscious sin with them! This book will not only inspire greatness in all who read it - but might just inspire you to run down to Homebase for those mirrored walls or a mexican pink fireplace for your sitting-room or better, suddenly make you yearn to install an wonderful outdoor cinema with funky neon for your friends to enjoy! Surely that got to be better than staying in to watch 'Friends'.
