Living Normally: Where Life Comes Before Style
Trevor Naylor and Niki Medlik
The antistyle bible for those who ignore makeover culture, Living Normally is an interiors book with a difference. Fifteen inhabitants of ordinary homes are given the chance to air their views on life at home today and to have the world come for a cuppa at their place. The results are a snapshot of Britain today and a refreshing reminder that a home should be a place to escape to; to feel happy in; and to live in. This affectionately photographed look at our everyday homes is a celebration of nice people, the modern family and our need to surround ourselves with memories and the curious ephemera of daily existence. Meet Evelyn, the lady who came from St Vincent and stayed because she loves the snow. Share some time with Ivy, whose house is full of memories of her children and her beloved Albert, the spoon-playing policeman whom she recently lost. Enjoy these and all the others in this charming evocation of simple existence.
