Editorial Reviews

Alice Joyce
The style associated with the British king Edward VII appears very spare when compared with the Victorian style, which preceded it. Hockman provides a synopsis of the historical conditions existing shortly before 1900, setting the scene for design trends that ensued once Edward became king. Hockman's well-illustrated book offers a serviceable, informative resource for anyone wishing to restore an Edwardian ambience to interiors or hoping to find ideas and motifs for exterior renovations. Hundreds of decorative elements are reproduced, showing details of facades, furnishings, and fittings. Hockman also recounts the architectural themes that dominated building styles at the time, but perhaps most useful are photographs of contemporary rooms decorated with an eye toward capturing the essence of Edwardian design.
