Summary
"Living Normally is an interiors book with a difference. An anti-style bible for those who ignore makeover culture, it gives fifteen inhabitants of ordinary homes the chance to have the world around for a cuppa at their place and to air their views on life at home today. The result is an affectionate snapshot of 21st-century Britain and a refreshing reminder that a home should be a place to escape to, to feel happy in, and to live in. This fond portrait celebrates nice people and their need to surround themselves with the reassuring ephemera of daily existence. Meet Evelyn, the lady who came from St Vincent and stayed because she loves the snow. Spend some time with Ivy, whose house is full of memories of her six children and her beloved Albert, the spoon-playing policeman whom she recently lost. Most people want nothing more than to be healthy and happy, and to bring up their children in a safe and loving environment - not earth-shattering notions, but ones that are being forgotten in these stressful, competitive times. Living Normally salutes these sentiments and invites you to share the homes of the families who star within." -book jacket.
