In Keep it Simple, Atlanta Bartlett and David Coote present a practical and inspirational guide to creating a happy and relaxed home that works perfectly for everyone who lives in it. They start at the very beginning, explaining the key elements at the heart of their own unique decorating philosophy, The Simple Mindset, which appreciates good, honest design, values quality not quantity and advocates rediscovering the simple pleasures of life. In Chapter 2: Making it Happen, Atlanta and Dave focus on design essentials such as working with existing architecture and choosing colour, furniture, fabrics, accessories and other decorative details. Finally, in Living the Dream, they take a tour through every room in the home, from attic to cellar, revealing how easy and enjoyable it can be to put together rooms that are practical yet personal and beautiful, and to create a home that's easy to live in and easy on the eye.
