A comprehensive guide to designing, decorating, and furnishing your home.

Every room in the house presents its own specific challenges as well as presenting a plethora of choices when it comes to choosing important (and expensive) elements such as flooring and lighting. Whether it's a stylish but practical kitchen floor or plenty of hardworking bedroom storage, in Space Works hard-working expert advice is on hand from Caroline Clifton-Mogg, Joanna Simmons, and Rebecca Tanqueray. Every room is discussed in detail and the topics covered range from galley kitchens and bedroom lighting to choosing sanitary ware for bathrooms and creating children's work spaces for homework and crafting. Each chapter approaches planning and designing a hardworking and successful space, tackles the practicalities of the subject, and provides a wealth of inspiration when it comes to making those tricky decorative decisions.

Caroline Clifton-Mogg writes about interior design, gardens and other subjects. She contributes to magazines such as House & Garden and Telegraph Magazine. Her books include French Country Living, Tuscan Escapes, The Comforts of Home and A Space of My Own (published 8 Sept. 2011) (all Ryland Peters & Small). She lives in Notting Hill.
