Author's Bio

Best-selling author and designer Sally Coulthard has spent the last twenty years designing, building and writing about craft, homes and outdoor living. She sees no boundary between the rules that govern good interior design and those which are needed to create a spectacular studio or glorious garden. Keen to explore the relationships between good design, craftsmanship and creativity, she's written over a dozen books about creative spaces, restoring houses, designing interiors and outdoor spaces. From cool studios to salvage, workspaces to building sheds, Sally's books inspire, encourage and equip readers to take on projects of their own.
