"An Hour At Home" is a practical and inspiring book, full of exquisite, imaginative projects for making a beautiful, comfortable home. You will find dozens of ideas - most of the available on a shoestring budget and all appropriate for beginners - for cleaning, decluttering, organising, personalising and decorating, which can be completed in an hour or less, leaving you time to appreciate and enjoy the comfort and style of your sanctuary. In a time when we are becoming increasingly committed to treading lightly on the earth, this is a book that pays homage to the graceful art of old-fashioned homemaking, where gentleness, simplicity and thrift are the key - and beauty and comfort are the ideal.
Sue Stubbs has spent many years styling and photographing images of food, homes and gardens for lifestyle and interiors magazines and books. Sue learnt homemaking from her mother and grandmothers, who knitted, cooked, fancyworked and created throughout their lives, and who gave her a down-to-earth approach to beauty and simplicity. Sue's photography is featured in many Murdoch Books titles, including An Hour in the Garden.
