    DescriptionAmanda Talbot demonstrates how architecture and interior design at their best can make us safer, healthier, more efficient, enlightened and productive - all contributing to a fundamental sense of wellbeing. In essence, Happy shows us ways in which design can help us live a happy life. This global survey reveals how designers are creating joyous living spaces that play to our emotions - speaking to our hearts as much as to our heads - through strategic planning and execution and by using carefully chosen colours, textures, quality of materials and finishes. Chapters (which incorporate case studies from homes around the world, as well as styled images) include 'Colour', 'Communal', 'Down time', 'Edit', 'Flow', 'Humour', 'Light', 'Location', 'Memories', 'Nature', 'Order', 'Pets', 'Play', 'Senses' and 'Spontaneity'.
