Book Description: In "Peaceful Spaces", Alice Whately offers chic and accessible ways to build an oasis of calm and comfort in your own home. The first step is to clear space and banish clutter. The next stage is to build on the blank canvas you have created using natural materials, soft colours, and carefully chosen furnishings and accessories. Whether your home is a minimal urban loft of a relaxed, pared-down country retreat, this serene style created spaces that are soothing rather than stark. -Covers spaces for living, eating, sleeping, bathing, and working, as well as spaces for enjoying the outdoors. -Tranquility has never looked so good.
