Description


Nomad at Home dissects the desire to wander the globe from the point of view of the design-led traveler, those for whom “it is a better thing to travel hopefully than to arrive.”

There are few countries I have visited without consulting the local real estate agent’s window or poring over the free property magazine. Whether in Puglia or Provence, I am already imagining my new life there; the basket I’ll carry to market, the dress I’ll change into for an apéro, the flea market at which I will buy my furniture, the secret cove where I’ll swim.”

In Nomad at Home, compulsive wanderer Hilary Robertson showcases 10 unique locations and tells the stories of different nomadic tribes: the Adopters, who have left home forever and made a life elsewhere, as well as the Escapists, always on the move, with a base in two, three, or maybe even four locations. Then there are the Serial Wanderers, who simply absorb the DNA of any given destination and bring it all back home; creating Provence in Pittsburgh with ingredients gathered on their travels. There are more ways than one of satisfying a wandering eye. As well as offering inspiration from homes all over the globe, Nomad at Home also contains champion shopper Hilary's nomadic sourcebook, which allows readers to hit the ground shopping in destinations all over the world, with an address book for every country covered, every story told.
