Description

The English style in interior design is admired and imitated the world over. The 21 houses featured here are country cottages, farmhouses and rectories, as well as terraced townhouses and flats. What links them is as much an attitude as a look. Just as the English prefer to dress for comfort than for all-day glamour, so the English style of decoration tends to be practical and informal, designed around the people who occupy the rooms rather than to impress. This is a book about houses that are lived in and loved, with interiors that are relaxed and relaxing, that are not afraid to be pretty, and that are above all comfortable. There are many facets to traditional English style, and the book's chapters, Plain English, English Eccentric, English Rose, English Country House and Classic English, reflect these different approaches. At the end of each section are pages devoted to practical and accessible ideas for furnishing a house in the English style, and the directory of sources will help you achieve the look in your own home.
