Overview

Regency Style is a comprehensive survey of the Regency period (1780-1837), when the English fascination with interior decoration first emerged as a popular occupation for both the wealthy and the average house owner. The book traces the evolution of the eclectic, quintessentially British style, as it combined influences of the antique and the exotic with the technological innovations of the day. Author Steven Parissien examines the Regency house of England and America from the outside in, from its architectural shell and its windows, doors and ironwork to the decoration, color schemes and furniture for each room. This book brings to life the work of such key designers as John Soane and Thomas Hope. It's a text you can truly feel at home with!
