Classic English Interiorsby Henrietta Spencer-Churchill
Classic English Interiors is a sumptuous showcase for a distinctive style that is now as popular in Manhattan as in the country houses of England. Written by The Lady Henrietta Spencer-Churchill, the book is divided into two parts. The first half reveals the private and the public side of Blenheim Palace, her ancestral home, explores the country houses of Oxfordshire from which Lady Henrietta drew much of her inspiration and features selections from Woodstock Designs portfolio. Her fascinating text reveals life behind the scenes in some of Britain's most beautiful country houses. Hundreds of specially commissioned photographs show how she has translated the confident sweep of classic English style to produce homes of great elegance; comfortable family spaces; fresh, simple schemes and smart, stylish ones. Classic English Interiors is also an immensely practical book. The second part is an extensive Designer's Lexicon -- an inspirational pictorial survey of halls and stairs, windows of all shapes and sizes, seating areas, fireplaces, dining areas, kitchens, walls and floors, beds and bedding, bathrooms and lighting. Here one will find hundreds of ideas for everything from wallpaper friezes to dried flower arrangements; from choosing rugs to displaying cherished collections. Classic English Interiors is both a confident style statement and an invaluable reference work for the home decorator.
