Rethink The Way You Live

Rethink The Way You Live by Amanda Talbot

When I first picked up this book I spent about ten minutes trying to figure out why there was a small hole through its middle. Some text is punctured and many images have a strange spot in them. I hesitantly held the book up to my face and peered through, and it was at that moment I realized that while the hole is a gimmick, it allowed me to see the world in a different way.

Rethink The Way You Live asks readers to do just that – to “think again, reflect” about how they live and reconsider how to design their homes. Evocative images, scrapbook-style page layouts, handwritten quotes, personal stories and inspiring designs come together in a solid book that presents a fresh and enlivening vision of the world – and houses – we live in, and what we can do to make them even better.
