Twenty-five years ago, Mickey Robertson and her husband Larry made an impulsive decision to purchase a collection of historic but dilapidated Georgian farm buildings in country NSW, Australia. Thus began an unplanned, intensely emotional journey of restoration and renewal, traced in this richly illustrated book through a warmly engaging narrative and inspirational images by photographer Daniel Shipp. The natural world and the seasons are an integral part of Mickey's home and life, and she explores the links between them as she recounts the story of the creation of her home's interiors and her garden. Glenmore House exemplifies her philosophy that colour, texture, representation, sentiment, memory and emotion each play a role in creating a home.
