"A house is not a home unless it has been given your personal imprint. Even after you have made your choice of colours, wall-coverings, and curtains, your house is merely a shell until you have filled it with your own things. The Finishing Touch is about the things you place in your homes - those possessions you proudly display, as well as those necessities you'd rather hide away.
The Finishing Touch encourages you to take a fresh look at the contents of your home to decide whether you are doing them justice. Whether carefully arranged, scattered at random or discreetly hidden away, these objects make a statement about you. The Finishing touch suggests ways to use these items to make your home an original showcase that reflects your personality and taste."
