Book Overview

"The Sensual Home" is the key to creating private havens that soothe and enhance each of the senses: the all-important gifts of sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing that are so often overwhelmed by the frantic pace of the outside world. Separate chapters examine first the senses themselves, then our sensual needs in categories such as Light and Space and Energy and Spirit. 200+ illustrations, 175 in color.

A simple yet lush and intensely rewarding home decor book

I have owned this book for about 3 years now and it by far the most helpful home book I have ever owned. I think this is a book for people that are very aware of their five senses and want a home that is intimate, simple, nurturing and pleasurable. Crawford cover the five senses, examining how to enhance your home experience with fabrics, textures, smells, sights, sounds, tastes and sights. She focuses on using natural materials rather than chemical ones. Cotton, silk, cashmere, natural stone, aromatherapy, flowers, etc. are all discussed. There is a great directory towards the end on what businesses she recommends finding the best, natural materals discussed in the book. I also love that the cover of the book itself is textured. I always ome back to this book for guidance on what I really need in my home to make it a warm, intimate, senual, pared down and happy place.

Wonderful peace of soul

This book teaches us how to feel calm and organized, how to embelish and refine our senses with the best home arrangements. I loved it!

A Wonderful Book to rediscover your humaness!

This is a great book and a must read! It shows that if you slow down and take your time and really use your senses, your life would be much richer. Why is this unrealistic (as one reviewer mentioned)? Maybe most americans aren't up with the idea of living fully (and i don't mean with money or material things). we could learn a few things from the Europeans. They know how to enjoy life. I'd also reconmend A Natural History of the Senses by Diane Ackerman. Our senses are what make us humans.

An inspiration and reminder of the simple pleasures in life.

This is a wonderful coffee table book that one can pick up and read for inspiration and enjoyment. Reminding us to bring the senses into the home like hot baked bread, wonderful chocolate, fabulous linnens and indulgant pieces of furniture, this book is all about living intentionally, and living well through our senses. I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking to add some joy to their life through elements of their home.


I borrowed this book from the library. Then I ordered 3 and then 2 more to send as gifts to the women in my family, neighbors, friends. I'll have to order more...This book teaches you how to fully enjoy your home as a place of peace and creativity. Bravo Ms.Crawford of England!The beauty of the cover alone makes this a lovely coffee table book.
