This is Home is a back-to-basics guide on how to create authentic wholehearted interiors. It's about living simply – finding the essence of what makes you happy at home and creating spaces that reflect your needs and style.

Filled with clever ideas and creative spaces it shows that you don't need a huge budget to create a beautiful home.

This is Home provides examples and case studies of places with a global and timeless feel that haven't always been renovated in the traditional sense but are true homes.

This is Home is about simple living, how to focus on our values to create authentic homes full of meaning and joy. Natalie Walton steps inside fifteen homes across the world to meet the people who made them, and discover whether there is some universality to what makes us happy in the spaces we inhabit.

Filled with beautiful photography, transporting stories and practical advice, This is Home reminds and inspires us to nurture the space that helps make our lives possible.
