A beautifully illustrated guide to creating a home interior free from clutter and keeping things simple.The simple home is calm and uncluttered, with each item carefully chosen. Its in tune with the current desire to buy well-made, well-designed items that will grow old gracefully, and to create homes that are sustainable and stylish. This doesnt mean a minimalist home   its about living in comfort in a carefully considered space. The Philosophy of the simple home explores Mark and Sally Baileys design ethos. Their Colour scheme is inspired by nature to create a feeling of tranquillity. Materials are reclaimed or reused, and ethically sourced. Calm reigns in the simple home   a haven from the stresses of life. Craft embraces the artisans skill and the pleasure of owning items that will last. Recycling furniture and materials will give your home an air of individuality, with old and new objects living happily alongside each other. Comfort is paramount, with cosy textiles and warm wood. A rediscovery of old-fashioned Natural Cleaning methods will nurture your home   try the Baileys own recipes for cleaning products without harsh chemicals. Furniture is sustainable, with clever storage to hide necessities. Finally, Curating Your Home looks at ways to make your space into your very own museum of cherished possessions. The Baileys then turn to simple Spaces, showing you how to create welcoming yet practical Entrances and Hallways, versatile, convivial Cooking and Eating spaces and supremely comfortable Living spaces. Bedrooms are soothing places with possessions tucked neatly away, while Bathrooms are functional yet warm. Workrooms are a joy to furnish with rescued desks and fittings from old offices or former factories. Above all, the Baileys urge you to surround yourself solely with the objects that you really love and to enjoy the beautiful calm of an uncluttered home.
