What could be more romantic than watching the sun rise and set over the sea, the mountains or the endless desert from a stylish little getaway shack with the ones you love?

In this beautifully illustrated book, design journalist, author and lifestyle editor Susan Redman not only inspires readers with many decorating ideas - collected from the most gorgeous getaway homes across Europe, the Americas and Australasia - she also delves deeper to reveal the personal stories of creative couples and individuals who have built, styled or restored their special hideaways.

From rustic retreats and dreamy beach houses to retro getaways and bespoke architectural havens, the diverse range of love shacks featured here offers design inspiration for your own home-away-from-home.

Providing readers with an authentic perspective, the 'shack' owners share design visions and decorating tips on how to awaken your inner stylist by combing the natural environment, local markets and vintage fairs to source love shack treasures.

Along with stunning photographs, 
Love Shacks also features interesting notes on the wild and natural setting of each love shack, so you can immerse yourself in the gorgeous surroundings of each home and find out how the people who live there connect with nature in their sanctuary.

This compelling book gives a unique insight into the desire to escape the urban jungle for a holiday home of one's own making in a remote or wild location, while exploring the role of design and creative vision in the process, making it perfect for anyone with a similar dream.
