Homes and gardens are fast becoming inseparable spaces.  Great interiors and great exteriors come from the same starting point – a place where good design, craftsmanship and creativity meet.


Best-selling author and designer Sally Coulthard has spent the last twenty years designing, building, planting and writing about homes and outdoor spaces.  She sees no boundary between the rules that govern good interior design and those which are needed to craft a spectacular studio or glorious garden.


Keen to make good design accessible, she’s written over a dozen books about restoring houses, designing interiors and creating outdoor spaces.  From garden styles to designing with salvage, creating workspaces to building sheds, Sally’s books inspire, encourage and equip readers to take on projects of their own.
