Georgia Green hat zwar keinen Verlobten mehr, dafür aber einen triftigen Grund, um nun ihrem Fernweh nachzugeben. Nachdem ihre Hochzeit geplatzt ist, verkauft sie ihr Haus, kündigt ihren Job und schnallt sich zum ersten Mal im Leben einen Rucksack um. In Thailand findet sie allerdings statt der erhofften Erkenntnis zunächst nur Mehrbettzimmer, Ungeziefer und extrascharfes Essen - aber auch ein paar unwiderstehliche Reisebegleiter. Und vor allem lernt Georgia, auf wie vielen Wegen das Glück zu erreichen ist. "Katy schreibt mit Humor und Herz. The Lonely Hearts Travel Club ist wie Bridget Jones auf Reisen." Holly Martin

The definitive reference on designing commercial interiors-expanded and updated for today's facilities Following the success of the ASID/Polsky Prize Honorable Mention in 1999, authors Christine Piotrowski and Elizabeth Rogers have extensively revised this guide to planning and designing commercial interiors to help professionals and design students successfully address today's trends and project requirements. This comprehensive reference covers the practical and aesthetic issues that distinguish commercial interiors. There is new information on sustainable design, security, and accessibility-three areas of increased emphasis in modern interiors. An introductory chapter provides an overview of commercial interior design and the challenges and rewards of working in the field, and stresses the importance of understanding the basic purpose and functions of the client's business as a prerequisite to designing interiors. This guide also gives the reader a head start with eight self-contained chapters that provide comprehensive coverage of interior design for specific types of commercial facilities, ranging from offices to food and beverage facilities, and from retail stores to health care facilities. Each chapter is complete with a historical overview, types of facilities, planning and interior design elements, design applications, a summary, references, and Web sites. New design applications covered include spas in hotels, bed and breakfast inns, coffee shops, gift stores and salons, courthouses and courtrooms, and golf clubhouses. In keeping with the times, there are new chapters focusing on senior living facilities and on restoration and adaptive use. A chapter on project management has been revised and includes everything from proposals and contracts to scheduling and documentation. Throughout the book, design application discussions, illustrations, and photographs help both professionals and students solve problems and envision and implement distinctive designs for commercial interiors. With information on licensing, codes, and regulations, along with more than 150 photographs and illustrations, this combined resource and instant reference is a must-have for commercial interior design professionals, students, and those studying for the NCIDQ licensing exam.
