We all need a haven, a place to soothe, restore, & refresh our spirits after the stress & demands of everyday life. This place can exist for everyone in her own home with a little imaginative decorating. Welcome to Victoria Intimate Home, the first book devoted to the emotional furnishings that can transform an ordinary house into a private, tranquil oasis. Here beauty & serenity co-exist with function. In Victoria Intimate Home personal pursuits are explored, & one might find a basket with stationary & a pen next to the sofa, or a chair by the window for solitary reverie. Bedrooms & baths are designed with grace ad light in mind, where one can greet the morning & perform daily grooming rituals surrounded by favorite things. With more than 85 glorious color photographs accompanying the text, conversations with homeowners who have mastered the art of the intimate home, & poetry & prose from such beloved writers as Virginia Woolf, Honore de Balzac, & Saki, Intimate Home pays tribute to private spaces, encouraging beauty in all things & joyful love of life & its round of daily pleasures.
