Think natural, loosen up, pare down, color in, and above all, live well! These are the key words of the new country living, and no home better exemplifies this wonderful philosophy than decorator Tricia Guild's Tuscan farmhouse. A tour around this warm and wonderful home is the centerpiece in a richly photographed look at what defines the best contemporary design. The first section, "A New Attitude," pinpoints the main features of this current approach. Then, the intimate glimpse into Guild's private world, as well as four other houses, spotlights her love of natural materials, her uncluttered arrangements, her loose approach to fabric, and bold use of color--as well as the inspiration she draws from the surrounding landscape. Rooms glow with brightness; her kitchen bursts with fresh produce; inside and out, tables are laid with embroidered cloths, jugs of garden flowers, vibrant mismatched plates, and delicious local foods. Finally, "Living and Entertaining" is an exhortation to fill your world with pleasure, and to bring exuberance not only to your dcor and design, but to all you do. None of the ideas is expensive, and every one is innovative, easy, and life enhancing!

Shouldn’t everyone receive a stake in society's wealth? Could we create a fairer world by guaranteeing income to all? What would this mean for our health, wealth, and happiness? Basic income is a revolutionary idea that guarantees regular, unconditional cash transfers from the government to all citizens. It is an acknowledgement that everyone plays a part in generating the wealth currently enjoyed by only a few and would rectify the recent breakdown in income distribution. Political parties across the world are now adopting this innovative policy and the idea generates headlines every day. Guy Standing has been at the forefront of thought surrounding basic income for the past thirty years, and in this book he covers in authoritative detail its effects on the economy, poverty, work, and labor; dissects and disproves the standard arguments against basic income; explains what we can learn from pilots across the world; and illustrates exactly why basic income has now become such an urgent necessity.
