About this title:

Synopsis: Amanda Talbot demonstrates how architecture and interior design at their best can make us safer, healthier, more efficient, enlightened and productive - all contributing to a fundamental sense of wellbeing. In essence, Happy shows us ways in which design can help us live a happy life. This global survey reveals how designers are creating joyous living spaces that play to our emotions - speaking to our hearts as much as to our heads - through strategic planning and execution and by using carefully chosen colours, textures, quality of materials and finishes. Chapters (which incorporate case studies from homes around the world, as well as styled images) include 'Colour', 'Communal', 'Down time', 'Edit', 'Flow', 'Humour', 'Light', 'Location', 'Memories', 'Nature', 'Order', 'Pets', 'Play', 'Senses' and 'Spontaneity'.

About the Author: Amanda Talbot is an internationally recognised stylist, and an interiors and design consultant. She is author of Rethink: The Way You Live (published by Murdoch Books in 2012). Amanda spent 10 years in London working with Livingetc and with ELLE Decoration as associate editor, as well as consulting to UK design icon Ilse Crawford and to Ikea, among others. She returned to Australia in 2011 to take up a judging role on Channel 9's Top Design. Amanda continues to work as a stylist and trend forecaster.
