Biography: general

In recent years there has been a huge rise in the development of loft-style apartments across the world, often housed in converted factory buildings and warehouses, and based on the principle of work/live open-plan layouts rather than on rules of traditional house design. Yet with all this focus on loft living, what is sometimes forgotten is that there is actually no need to invest in one of the cutting-edge, often expensive, new developments in order to achieve a contemporary look. Contemporary-house style is based on a few simple design principles that can be achieved in any style of home - an uncluttered, minimalist layout combined with functional materials, set off by natural furnishing and colors are the essentials of the contemporary look. This book presents a number of contemporary interiors that will inspire you to apply these design principles in your own home.
