About the Author

Matt Gibberd was formerly a Senior Editor at the World of Interiors, and has written on design and architecture for the Telegraph, House & Garden and Elle Decoration. In 2005, he co-founded The Modern House, a pioneering design-led estate agency based in London, which he continues to grow with his business partner, Albert Hill. The pair established a new sister brand, Inigo, in 2021. Matt lives in the countryside with his wife, the designer Faye Toogood, and their three daughters. Their home has been published in Vogue, Cereal and the New York Times.

'Gibberd is co-founder of The Modern House, a design-led London estate agency whose website attracts 15 million page views a year. In handling the sale of thousands of homes, from small flats to listed architectural masterpieces, he noticed the same five principles for living emerging again and again: Space, Light, Materials, Nature and Curation. His delectable first book aims to expand on these transformative principles, from the effective positioning of doors and windows, to the anchor provided by possessions. Property porn with a point' * Bookseller *
