Romantic Country Style: Creating the English Country Look in Your Home

Overview

The idea of English country style may conjure many images -- from cottages snug in flower-strewn gardens to rustic homes furnished with all the signs of peaceful country life to grander houses presiding over rolling vistas of fields and meadows. What all these visions share is the image of the country retreat as a romantic rural idyll.

Overview

The idea of English country style may conjure many images -- from cottages snug in flower-strewn gardens to rustic homes furnished with all the signs of peaceful country life to grander houses presiding over rolling vistas of fields and meadows. What all these visions share is the image of the country retreat as a romantic rural idyll.

This is why we find English country decorating style to be so attractive -- and so romantic. This book shows how the look can be achieved by anyone with a desire to create a charming and intimate country home. This style has evolved slowly over the centuries and continues to do so, refined and adapted according to practical and decorative considerations. And its great advantage is that it can work as well in a small apartment as in a large country house.

In this book you will find classic kitchens, relaxed family living rooms, cozy bedrooms with quilted comforters, cool summer retreats draped with muslin, country-style gardens, ideas for outdoor living, and much more.

Produced in association with Victoria magazine, Romantic Country Style shows how to create and enjoy the essence of English country style in your home.

Introduced in 1987 and enjoyed by four million readers every month, Victoria magazine devotes its articles to fashion, home, and cooking, including beautiful features on home decorating and style.
