Home is where the heart ought to be. But nowadays too many of us are missing the human connection and emotional replenishment that only a rewarding home life can bestow. Designer Rosanna Bowles wants to change that. In Coming Home, she shares a year-round plan for establishing traditions-and, in the process, making memories-that will restore home to its central place in your family's life. Taking her cues from the seasons' changing moods-spring's awakening, summer's vibrancy, fall's bittersweet transition, and winter's introspection-Bowles creates a calendar of activities, rituals, and celebrations that will bring you back home in the deepest and most fulfilling sense. And because the table is where family and beloved friends most often come together, she provides more than fifty favorite recipes-for simple family meals and sumptuous holiday feasts-that deliciously express each season's character.
Rosanna Bowles started her successful dishware company in 1982. She has won many design awards for her tableware, including the Gift of the Year award in the U.K. She has been featured in the New York Times, Country Living, Family Circle, O magazine, Real Simple, Harper's Bazaar, and many other publications. She lives in Seattle, Washington, and on the Oregon coast.
