In 2005, Matt Gibberd and Albert Hill founded The Modern House – an estate agency, publisher and lifestyle brand that aimed to showcase the way in which good design can have a positive impact on wellbeing. In this beautifully illustrated book, Gibberd concentrates on the five principles that underpin The Modern House’s ethos – space, light, materials, nature and decoration. Guided by these tenets, he explores elegant environments, happy homes, clever design and notable success stories, as well as looking at ways to integrate these principles into any space, however large or small.

This is a lavish and inspiring look at modern design, and modern living.
