This beautifully photographed book inspires and challenges people to reconsider how to redesign their homes to blend in with modern life.

Rethink: The way you live is a book to inspire and challenge people to reconsider how to redesign their homes. Told with beautifully photographed and evocative images of homes across the world, Rethink shows the way people are starting to live, with an overview of the amazing things happening and how you can include them in your life.

Do you grow your own food, reuse and recycle, source quality products instead of big-name brands, or take time to craft rather than purchase? If so, you are already embracing the global trend. In different corners of the world people are reviving age-old methods, redesigning their homes and communities to blend with modern life. Rethink: The way you live reveals the ways we can weave creativity, sustainability, quality and technology into our life and home. Our world is changing quickly and so are we, adapting to accommodate new social and environmental behaviour. With more of us finding creative outlets for reuse, recycling and reappropriation in our homes, combining age-old resourcefulness with new methods, modern technology and a fresh vision, we are seeing the redesign of our living environments.
