We want to be modern, but we want to be human too' Ilse Crawford Ilse Crawford is constantly breaking new ground in her study of the individual's search for the perfect home. Continuing the theme of 'one eye sees, the other feels' from her previous book, Sensual Home, this book moves beyond the senses to an investigation of our basic human drives for survival, safety, love, respect and self-fulfillment. This is then expanded to how we live, our homes and our daily activities. Despite our increasing reliance on technology to bring ease and comfort to our lives, Ilse says 'we still want a sense of humanity, of home - a space that speaks to us radically and emotionally.' A unique flow of thought-provoking text, evocative photography and state-of-the-art design combine to produce a reaction in the reader which is as emotional as it is intellectual.
