With a little imagination you can see the potential of an older property. Modern, sustainable design can transform an aging edifice into a stunning, one-of-a-kind home with an eye to the future and a foot in the past. With a little imagination you can see the potential of an older property. Modern, sustainable design can transform an aging edifice into a stunning, one-of-a-kind home with an eye to the future and a foot in the past. How do you you bring new life to a home while celebrating its unique character? Revealing the true potential of a heritage property is more about developing an eye for opportunity than inheriting the perfect home. The transformation from ugly duckling to swan requires savvy ideas and the right approach. From lush suburban residences to former churches and barns, The Home Upgrade shows the rewards of reinventing a historic property that needs work. Whether changing floor plans, adding extensions, or using sustainable building techniques and innovative new materials, the juxtaposition between the old and the new is key. Through diverse case studies and interviews with leading architectural studios, The Home Upgrade inspires you to bridge the gap between the old and the new with sensitive interior design.

An ode to extravagant and lush interiors that are not afraid to take risks, this new design movement proves that when it comes to bold colors and rich detailing, more is always more. A 21st-century take on sumptuous interiors is sweeping through the design world, combining expressive colors and textures with unusual forms and materials. The result is a highly original interior style, a contemporary interpretation of art deco and classic 50s and 60s Hollywood film set interiors. This new maximalist aesthetic is lovingly layered with references―a welcome antidote to mid-century modernism and minimalist restraint. The House of Glam invites you into the most exciting homes, from Italy to the USA, that embody this decadent, playful trend, profiling key studios and designers at the forefront of the movement. Revealing the key insights behind this rich new spectrum of design, The House of Glam will convert even the most hardened minimalists among us.

A modernist take on Mediterranean aesthetics, this new movement in interior design embraces sumptuous minimalism through warm, earthy tones, and natural materials. A welcoming, new, down-to-earth minimalism is gaining momentum in home interiors, from California to Morocco, Portugal to Mexico. This trend combines folkloric influences with a rustic aesthetic, taking cues from arid landscapes to embrace warmth, light, and organic elements. Striking, sun-kissed interiors are replete with greenery to bring the outdoors in, and whitewashed walls are complemented by warm, earthy tones. Detailing like terracotta tiles, rattan furniture, and colorful handwoven textiles are offset by concrete, brick, and glass. The New Mediterranean showcases inspiring residences and apartments that are infused with this relaxed, Mediterranean aesthetic. The book introduces the designers, architects, and brands who are bringing the style to life, outlining key elements in order to show how to create this look at home. More than a design trend, this is a philosophy to transform interiors into havens of light, craftsmanship, and simplicity.

In these pages you will find side-by-side the advice of Marie Kondo and the teachings of Hideko Yamashita through Danshari (a Japanese approach to tidying up).
