Stuff of Life: Arranging Things Ordinary & Extraordinary
Stuff of Life
Arranging Things Ordinary & Extraordinary
Hardcover      ISBN: 1788790863
Hilary Robertson reveals a multitude of ways to style and display the "stuff of life"--the flotsam and jetsam of possessions, from pictures and ornaments to hats and bicycles, that we accumulate over the course of time.

In the first chapter, How to Arrange your Stuff, Hilary identifies and illustrates four different approaches to arrangements--intuitive, narrative, practical, and curatorial--and shows how each one can be achieved. She also considers the variety of display locations available within the home--walls, mantelpieces, windowsills, chests of drawers, tabletops--and suggests how to make the most of them. Next, in Stories Told by Real Homes, Hilary shares insider knowledge drawn from the experience of creating interiors that fall into five different styles--Neatnik, Bohemian, Naturalist, Sculpture Vulture, and Noble Salvage. Some people are magpies--they love stuff; finding, collecting, and displaying it--while their opposite, the minimalists, are on a mission to contain or tame it. The ideas in this book will appeal to magpies, minimalists, and everyone in between.

Ageless Homes for Later Life
Hardcover      ISBN: 1580933025
Unassisted Living documents the shift away from the senior housing that promoted disengagement toward architecture and design that promote active aging. The book is organized in six sections, corresponding to the concerns and special interests of Boomers--those who intend to remain in an urban setting, those concerned with sustainability, those with complex families and non-traditional households, and those who seek a community based on spirituality or shared interests.

Boomers are perhaps the largest generational cohort the United States has ever seen. Numbering some 78 million people born between 1946 and 1964, Boomers are not accepting traditional retirement or "senior housing" and are instead determined to remain active and engaged professionally and socially.
