The Comfortable Home
An Inspirational Guide to Creating Feel-good SpacesBook - 2006
Is your ideal sleeping spot a soft mattress with heaps of pillows or a firm bed with crisp white sheets? Does your day start with a long soak or a short sharp shower? Home comfort is a matter of taste, so creating spaces that feel good (as well as look good) is essential.In "The Comfortable Home", Jane Burdon explores Relaxing Spaces, Eating & Cooking Spaces, Sleeping Spaces, Bathing Spaces, and Outdoor Spaces. She advises on furniture essentials, from the right bed to the best couch, and looks at the elements contributing to the comfort of each space, from flooring to blankets. A "finishes" section in each chapter details the tactile door handles, perfect flatware, and well-placed rugs that make a difference, and a series of room schemes offers further inspiration. With illuminating photographs and an invaluable list of resources, this book will give you the knowledge to decorate your home and the confidence to trust your instincts.
