Space, Light, and Harmony—containing 70 beautiful color photographs—is an adventure in design, building, and living. It is the true story of the evolution of a home—from initial planning to interior decorating—that serves as a powerful metaphor for personal development.
Years ago, Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters) withdrew to the woods in a personal search for clarity. In designing his home, he felt that it must reflect this inner search. In the process of building, the author explores practical topics such as what a home should express, architectural choices, interior design, and how to select art for your home. He also discusses deeper principles behind these choices, such as the importance of myth, the meaning of friendship, and the need to find balance in our lives. Full-color photographs throughout, presented in a gift-book format.
