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.
Bestselling 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 has 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.
Sally is the author of STUDIO (Jacqui Small, 2017), SHED DECOR (Jacqui Small, 2015), A HOME OF YOUR OWN: Creating Interiors With Character (Merrell), GARDENALIA (Jacqui Small, 2013), SHED CHIC (Jacqui Small, 2009), THE RECLAIMERS (Hodder & Stoughton, 2005), RESTORED TO GLORY: A Guide to Renovating your Period Home and Pure Living: How to Detox your Home (BBC Books, 2005) and seven other books.
Her most recent book, THE LITTLE BOOK OF FIRES (Head of Zeus), was published for Christmas 2017. Three more books follow in 2018.
She also runs her own private garden design practice.
