For decades, Terence Conran's Essential House books were the everyman's and everywoman's bibles for creating a residence that satisfied all of our home needs. Now, Maxwell Ryan and the team behind Apartment Therapy offer a complete home book for the 21st century, walking readers through every aspect of setting up, decorating, and caring for a place you will love to return to and one that will evolve with you, your family, and your priorities.
From finding the right place (and doing a Move-in Cure when you get there!) to getting a good room-to-room flow to defining your style, from sprucing up floors and walls to choosing art and accessories, this book first teaches you how to set up your residence for everyday ease and enjoyment.
Vibrantly photographed room chapters follow, drawn from 30 real-life homes, with in-depth tips and strategies for designing efficient entryways, comfortable living spaces, and even celebration-worthy outdoor spaces. Finally, guidance on maintenance--including both Year-Round and mini Home Cures and organization tips galore--will help you keep your home looking and feeling just right for years to come.
