Taking a room-by-room approach, Chris describes the essentials of creating coziness from the colors to use, the textiles to incorporate, the decorative accessories and lighting to include, and how to bring a sense of personality and uniqueness to your own space. Using natural, or pre-loved and re-purposed objects is an important element of this ethos. Wherever you live, in an urban apartment, town house, or country cottage, Chris will inspire you to bring comfort and happiness into your space whether by creating a welcoming wreath for the front door made from foraged items, kitchen curtains made from old vintage quilts, eco-friendly natural cleaning products, or lavender bags and scented candles…
Your home will become a sanctuary, a home for the soul surrounded by the things you love, a place you will long to return to at the end of the day and one that is kind to the planet too.
