Reclaim the real heart of the kitchen and turn it into the living, breathing centre of your home.
This is not a kitchen design book. It is about what a kitchen is - or should be.
Traditionally, the kitchen was a place of feminine nurturing and sustenance, a place of safety and magic in which culinary and psychological magic both took place. Sadly, nowadays, we have lost balance in our homes. Many of us no longer have a hearth, a living fire. The heart of the home is all too often replaced by a status symbol of clinical modern design.
As part of a superb series, 'Spirit Of The Kitchen' includes advice on:
- How to bring out the potential of the room; considering its history, mythology and psychology.
- How to use colour, sound, scent and light in the room.
- Furnishings and decoration, creative storage and finishing touches.
- Simple rituals and blessings for the room - smudging, cleansing and rituals.
