My nine year old daughter and I have been looking at your William Morris book ‘Decor and Design’ to help her with a school project. I find your explanations and observations so understandable and exact for a layman like myself – what a great skill you have.
I am embarking on a house building project of my own. We are hoping to build a new modern house with a distinct ‘nod’ towards the Arts and Crafts design. DO you think this is achieveable? am I mad!?! When reading your book I instantly wished that you were sitting with me as I look at the architects sketches. Is such a thing possible (in a virtual way)? We have a sensible enough budget for construction but are not wealthy affluent home counties types with streams of cash. My ambition is to create a home of integrity for my family rather than a show piece for external admirers. Are you able to guide or help in such circumstances?

I recently found a book of yours, “Bohemian Interiors”, in a library. It was a wonderful book with many inspiring ideas, and I’d love to buy a copy. Do you have a link to this on Amazon?

I’m glad you enjoyed the book! It’s out of print now, so it’s a bit pricey on Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Bohemian+style+elizabeth+wilhide but you could try other sources such as abe books to see if they have any cheaper copies.
all the best, Liz

Hi! I bought the swedish edition of “Natural Living” (Naturlig inredning, published by Raben Prisma in Sweden), that You wrote with Joanna Copestick. The book was first published in 1995 by Conran. In the book is a picture, taken by Jerome Darblay at page 49, a text abour floors. The picture is from the inside of somekind of longish big oneroom wooden summerhouse, the wooden floor is green and in the center of the picture is a large wooden table with ” foldable chairs in wood and black”… where is that picture taken, who owns the house??? I simply love it! I own a small Island in the Aaland archipelago and would like do build something similar. I’ve been dreaming of that house for over 10 years… I realise this is looking for a needle in a haystack, but I dislike giving up on trying to reach the moon 🙂 and make my dream come true. I would love any kind of hint of where to get information about the house… Kind regards from one that loves Your books in Finland

Hi Elizabeth, we enjoyed your book Small Spaces and really like the dining table pictured on page 108 – Harriet Maxwell Macdonald’s Apartment. Do you know where we might purchase this table? We live in the Colorado, USA. thank you! Kara Horner
