Rethink: The way you live

Rethink: the way you live by Amanda Talbot .   Photos – Mikkel Vang.  Published by Murdoch Books.

Day after day Kim and I bring you inspirational and aspirational homes. At times I wonder if we are peddling an unsustainable dream. The vast majority of us will not live in a large house, on a large block of land with interiors outfitted with a large amount of money. High end is not the real end for most of us. And there is nothing wrong with that. Most o f us will live in apartments. We will share bedrooms and facilities. We will not  have $450 a drop wallpaper or even brand new furniture. But we will all strive to create family homes that are beautiful and sustainable and real. In fact it is liberating to know that throwing money at a house isn't necessarily the way to go or grow.

Amanda Talbot is an internationally renowned authority on interiors, style and design. She has worked for some of the biggest decor magazines and design firms on the planet. Think British ELLE Decoration and Livingetc to IKEA and WGSN. She's a trend forecaster and the author of Rethink: The way you live. Published by Murdock Books in 2012, and know in its second reprint, the book explores and celebrates the way people are starting to live, to redesign and redefine what they need to live well (and well informed). Homes are were we live and create, where we struggle and strive, where we love  and where we celebrate. Ritual, dreams and design. But Rethink: The way you live isn't a dry and crusty manifesto. Amanda travelled with Copenhagen based photographer Mikkel Vang to Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Paris, London, New York, Japan, and Australia to document global design trends within our homes and our communities. What resulted is a book of inspiring ideas and gorgeous images. A little subversive don't you think? Beauty and brains and bucket loads of reality. Having already struck a cord with readers in the UK and Australia, Amanda's view needs to be read by a wider audience. It's inspiring. So if you can't find it in your bookstore there is always Amazon ;)
