In this follow-up to her sensational Sensual Home, Ilse Crawford is once again breaking new ground in her study of the individual's search for the perfect home. Continuing the theme of 'one eye sees, the other feels', the book moves beyond the senses into an investigation of our basic human drives for survival, safety, love, respect, and self-fulfilment. This is then expanded to how we live, our homes and our daily activities. Despite our increasing reliance on technology to bring ease and comfort to our lives, Ilse says, 'we still want a sense of humanity, of home - a space that speaks to us radically and emotionally'. A unique flow of thought-provoking text, evocative photography, and state of the art design combine to produce a reaction in the reader which is as emotional as it is intellectual.
