    Author: SCHIFF THOMAS R
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    In pre–Revolutionary War America, libraries were member-driven collections for the elite; it was not until 1790 that Benjamin Franklin helped to establish the first public lending library. Throughout the subsequent centuries the library has evolved, but always remained central to the cultural life of the nation.

    Thomas R. Schiff’s photographs trace the history of the library through aesthetic and style while featuring legendary architects such as Charles F. McKim; Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge; and I. M. Pei.

    The Library Book beautifully captures the shifting architectural styles and missions of the library in sweeping 360-degree panoramas from the very earliest American libraries to the modernist masterpieces of Louis I. Kahn and others.

    In his introductory essay, acclaimed author and library lover Alberto Manguel considers the story of the library in America, its evolving architecture and cultural role, and how the American model reflects the archetypal idea of the universal library.

    Including brief descriptions of each unique library, this book brings bibliophiles into one hundred libraries across the nation.

    We are bombarded by perfect interiors, images that aren’t attainable because they have been styled to the point where they bear no resemblance to reality. These interiors may be stunning, but they aren’t an honest reflection of how we really live and they tend to make us feel bad about our own less-than-perfect homes. Life Unstyled is about taking inspiration from real homes that are beautiful, creative and inspiring but a little rough around the edges, with signs of everyday life evident throughout.

    The first section, ‘Homes Unstyled’, sets out Emily's manifesto for creating a stylish home that is beautiful but lived in. It advocates allowing your space to evolve gradually so it is an everchanging expression of your tastes and interests; suggests ways to make the most of the home you have rather than yearning for unattainable perfection; offers ideas for wrangling papers, clutter and other stuff; tackles collections and displays; and rejects style diktats and shows how individuality can bring a home to life.

    The second section, ‘People Live Here’, visits real-life homes that are definitely not perfect yet display incredible style and creativity and reflect their owners’ needs, tastes and style. And throughout the book, quick fixes, DIY makes and ‘Every Home Should Have…’ boxes offer creative solutions with unique results.

    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    In his first book on interior design, internationally-acclaimed designer Jamie Durie shows us how to create a home totally at one with nature.

    International award-winning designer and TV host Jamie Durie has long been passionate about creating outdoor rooms – luxurious living spaces where we can cook, eat, bathe and sleep outdoors – but he is equally driven to create interiors that bring the outdoors inside. Over the last decade his work has evolved from landscape design into a very successful furniture and interior design practice. At the heart of his design philosophy is his belief that the closer we live to nature, the happier we feel.

    Living Design explores ‘Transterior’ homes where the interior and exterior of a home merge. In this book Jamie, along with Durie Design’s creative director Nadine Bush, showcases exceptional houses from around the world, including Jamie’s own, and demonstrates innovative ways to integrate nature into the home with plants, colours, textures, materials and architecture. Learn how to create a home that is a living sanctuary and make the natural world part of your everyday life.

    A house is merely physical but a home is far more subtle and elusive. This book takes the view that being at home is a metaphor for finding ourselves finding our core.

    What do we find at our core? Well, if the world's great wisdom traditions have anything to say about it then home is about qualities that we could equate with 'good' itself true happiness, peace, beauty, wisdom and inspiration. It is also about the good things in life such as harmony, relationships, health and wealth. So, how are we to find our core and create a home that reminds us of the qualities associated with it? That is where the practice of mindfulness comes in!

    By exploring the ways in which we feed our mind and our heart through our senses, how we use space, the practicalities of managing a home, and how we can live a healthy and sustainable life at home, The Mindful Home will enable us to shape the living space we really want, creating an environment that both nurtures and invigorates us, while meeting our needs.

    Beautifully designed, this is the ultimate guide to the art of conscious living Combines the two megatrends of Mindfulness and Home Improvement in a beautiful useful book which has attracted enormous pre publication interest around the world as the only book of its kind.

    Chapters include Philosophy of The Mindful Home, The Five Sense, The Five spaces, Home as a Healthier Environment.
