MY COOL HOUSEBOAT


MY COOL HOUSEBOAT

JANE FIELD-LEWIS    Book Number: 91935    Product format: Hardback

A companion to My Cool Kitchen code 91936 here is another photographic showcase of beautifully designed interiors, the real homes of people with great imagination, taste and creativity. One example is an amphibious caravan which switches seamlessly between a mobile home and messing about on the water. Clean stainless steel and plastic lines, lying comfortably against nautical wooden textures and leather upholstery, a sunroof and large windows flooding the space with light. With full length glass windows on the deck looking directly at eye level onto water, the floating Passivhaus aautarkhome in Berlin uses the filtered and treated river water for all domestic purposes. The book certainly is a 'feel good' style guide to unique and inspirational houseboats. A surprising number of people are now electing to live on boats and transform them into stylish and comfortable homes, unusual workspaces or thriving businesses for modern life. 35 stylish houseboats from converted ferryboats and disused freight barges converted into family homes, the 1920s Dutch barge bookshop Word on the Water in Kings Cross London, the nostalgic elegance with a splendid wood burner of a Thames sailing barge with dark red sails, floating cinema, bar, another book barge, a steep learning curve of painting and varnishing and salting the decks after rain and airing the boat in warm weather on the Australian sailing boat, the Berlin yoga boat nicknamed the African Queen and the Copenhagen recycled boat are some of the inventive and idiosyncratic solutions to living successfully in a small space. 160 large pages, colour photos.
