Kevin McCloud’s 43 Principles of Home Details
Kevin McCloud’s 43 Principles of Home represents a landmark piece of interiors publishing.
In this lavish and inspirational yet also practical book Kevin explores all areas of domestic living, from materialism to sustainability, craftsmanship to comfort. In his witty, wide-ranging commentary on the way we live now, the things we have gained and lost, Kevin’s beautifully written text brings insight and understanding.
Crucially, however, he also offers up his 43 principles of home life – each one addressing very real and solvable domestic issues. What is the perfect kitchen layout? How to create a feeling of space in traditionally sized rooms? How to create an extension that works? How best to choose colour for function? How do you create dynamic and enjoyable kids spaces? What to do with your empty fireplace? And how best to manage home waste and recycling?
An inspiring but always usable book from the foremost voice in modern architectural design.
