About the author

Atlanta Bartlett is an interiors stylist whose trademark look is accessible and easy-going. Dave Coote is a furniture and interiors designer well known for his quirky, retro style with an emphasis on reclaimed materials. Atlanta and Dave live on Romney Marsh, Kent.

In Keep It Simple, Atlanta Bartlett and Dave Coote present a practical and inspirational guide to create a happy and relaxed home that works perfectly for everyone who lives in it. They start at the beginning, explaining the key elements at the heart of their unique decorating philosophy, The Simple Mindset, which appreciates good, honest design, values quality not quantity, and advocates rediscovering the simple pleasures in life. In Chapter 2: Making it Happen, Atlanta and Dave focus on design essentials such as working with existing architecture and choosing color, furniture, fabrics, accessories and decorative details. Finally, in Living the Dream, they take a tour through every room in the home, from attic to cellar, revealing how effortless and enjoyable it can be to put together rooms that are practical yet personal and beautiful, and to create a home that's easy to live in and easy on the eye.
