Conari Press, Berkeley, CA, 2000, 1st Ed 1st Pr. Hardbound, Ill: David Wakely. Meditations On Design: Reinventing Your Home With Style and Simplicity by John Wheatman. Published by Conari Press, Berkeley, CA, 2000. 1st Edition1st Printing. Hardbound, Paper DJ. Size 8vo (up to 9-1/2'' tall). Condition: Fine in Stained & Chipped DJ. 127 Pgs. ISBN 157324192X. LCCN 99-042091. The author stresses the importance of individual quirkiness in interior design, focusing on comfort and the needs of the homeowner. He also stresses the importance of decorating around treasured items and personal collections and not the ideas of a hired decorator: it's those beloved mementos, artworks, inherited furniture, and found craft items that give a home personality and appeal, and, because those collections are ever-changing and expanding, a home needs to be a continually evolving space. For all kinds of interiors (and some gardens as well), whether they be city apartments of country cottages, the author provides practical and uncomplicated ideas for displaying objects, housing books, and using an eclectic combination of furnishings to its best advantage to create a truly personal home.
