But it doesn't have to be that way: you can start making anywhere your home right now and it doesn't have to cost the earth. In Keeping House, Emma Blomfield shares beautifully illustrated tips on homemaking and entertaining. Learn how to style and maintain every room in your house to achieve a state of meaningful living, and to decorate and connect with guests through beautiful events, with details on everything from styling small spaces with plants to creating the perfect cheeseboard.

Anyone can create a beautiful home by foraging, and salvaging what they find. Whether a box of rusty nails or a disused armchair missing a leg, discarded objects can be restored, recycled or repurposed to fill the home with personal style. Artful interiors are born from curiosity, creativity and imagination, yet many of us fail to see a potential curtain rail in a bamboo stick or a hidden kitchen worktop in an old carpenter's bench - let alone knowing where to find such objects. Presenting the techniques and philosophies of a wide spectrum of experienced foraging homeowners, this book showcases unexpected and inspiring interiors from all over the world, from an upturned boat in France to an Australian beach house. Such diverse locations each demand a different approach to foraging and, as a result, each home has a distinct sense of style.
