This ‘manual for a better life’  is all about getting back to the basics of good shelter. It’s a guide to help you apply and optimise the five fundamental factors in home design - space, air, light, view and sound - to the five most common spaces in all our homes - entry, living area, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. In engaging, informed and accessible text supported by stunning photography, practising architect Joe Snell shows how to get the fundamentals right in order to lead a fulfilling, healthy and happy life in your home. Your spaces will provide renewed inspiration and your styling and accessories will have meaning and substance.

Your Best Home provides the tools and information for you to affect positive change in your own living environment, at your own pace, and within a budget.
