The Natural Home is a collection of the world's most beautiful country houses. More than 300 colour photographs present an array of atmospheres, ranging from sun-filled Mediterranean splendour to idyllic simplicity and rustic comfort. With loving attention to detail, these houses have been built or restored by their owners and reflect harmony with their natural environment. Featuring traditional building materials, such as wood and stone, these dream houses have drawn richly upon local traditions and the skill of native craftsmen in architecture and interior design. A feast for the eye, this book is more than an invitation to dream: it also offers a wealth of ideas to homeowners everywhere. Chapters include Mediterranean Lifestyle, Alpine Dreams, On the Emerald Isle and African Lodges.
