HOMES & GARDENS magazine is highly respected for its creative yet accessible approach to interiors themes. This unique, imaginative, contemporary design resource focuses upon the essential principles of design and decoration - space and shape, lighting, colour, materials and texture, fabric and pattern - and shows how these classic concepts can be adapted to any location or look. Both authors are familiar with the most contemporary design trends, yet also aware of the day-to-day concerns of changing your living space. An inspirational and authoritative reference base, HOMES & GARDENS explores the ideas of past masters and reveals how these are featured within a variety of present-day interpretations.
The author of the book, Matthew Line, is the Editor of HOMES & GARDENS, a highly successful interiors magazine. He has presided over its increasingly high profile, expanding circulation and younger, inspirational emphasis. Simon Cavelle, the interior design consultant, is a practising designer and course director of a leading interior design college.
