About the author

The Baileys’ style has been evolving for over 25 years in their home and business, which

includes a large showroom and shop in Herefordshire. They live near Ross-on-Wye.

In Handmade Home, Mark and Sally Bailey of destination homeware store Baileys Home & Garden turn to the homes of artists, craftspeople, and designers and those who collect their work.

Living with paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and textiles—in fact almost anything crafted by hand —will give your home a distinct personality that is welcome in this age of mass production. Handmade Home shows how living with handcrafted pieces is a joyful experience that awakens the senses and brings simple, tactile pleasure to every day.

The book begins by looking at The Elements: Color, Texture, Textiles, Made by Hand, and Collecting. Next, The Homes contains 12 inspirational case studies, offering a glimpse into the private spaces of those who love to create or to live with handmade pieces. Each of the carefully chosen locations demonstrates how living with art and craft can bring variety and beauty to every corner of the home
