The ultimate guide to creating the perfect pared-back, romantic and soulful home.

"Atlanta and Dave have a unique talent to build, rework and decorate properties with a functional and romantic flow. Using reclaimed and authentic elements is a signature of their work and creates charming and timeless homes." Rachel Ashwell – Founder of Shabby Chic

In this timely interiors book, design duo Atlanta Bartlett and Dave Coote explore a new type of minimalism. This isn't the 1990s version where lonely sofas sat in monastic empty rooms but an altogether softer approach. The emphasis is in appreciating the imperfect, encouraging self-expression and never compromising on comfort - all while keeping the core principles of simplicity, utility and elegance firmly in sight.

This new minimalism has romance and nostalgia at its heart. It celebrates the plain and simple things in life; loves old, time-worn treasures; shuns materialism in favor of sustainability and creates a home to soothe the soul. The book includes stunningly photographed case studies of homes, alongside chapters on topics ranging from color usage and storage, to sustainability and sourcing found objects from nature. This is the perfect manual for curating elegant and soothing living spaces.
