I absolutely loved talking on my Live Your own Way Podcast this time with best selling Author Sally Coulthard about her latest book Biophilia. She has also offered a prize for my readers with more information at the end of this post.
It was well worth the purchase and I am pretty picky when it comes to a good book. It’s a mixture of well researched facts mixed with useful ideas to enhance and balance our homes. Well worth every penny and as I said to Sally – it’s timeless in style so definitely a keeper too.
I feel I know so much more about the subject and how beneficial inviting more natural elements and plants in to your home can be for your whole family. Although plants are fundamental they aren’t the only thing that can help balance the home – there are many aspects.
Sally studied Archaeology and Anthropologie at Oxford University and has gone on to write 22 books – many nature based plus some excellent Interiors ones as well. We chat about this and what especially inspired this Biophilia book.
She also writes monthly for Country Living Magazine so her knowledge on her subject and experience is vast.
This is the inside cover of the book by Helen Bratby. The pages feel really tactile and every page is beautiful.
We talked about how the last few months have felt and whether things might change for good when it comes to slowing life down a bit and appreciating what is around us.
I do hope you enjoy the Podcast and as mentioned earlier there’s more … if you are on instagram I am running a giveaway for a few days as Sally is kindly offering the chance for someone to receive a copy of the book as a prize.
You can find my post here with how to enter that. I haven’t run a giveaway for ages so it’s nice to be able such a great gift.
Next week I am chatting to the super talented Dominic Chinea from BBC1’s The Repair Shop. Do subscribe if you enjoy as there’s more to come. So glad I started this show – I feel I am finding out more and more each week about different aspects of design – as you never stop learning do you ?
If you missed last week’s you can find it here.
