Overview

The English House is a vivid photographic tour of the private homes and lifestyles of the storied English countryside that offers England's rich span of architectural and interior styles as wonderfully inspiring and intiguing examples of current influential decorating trends. Whether a charming and humble cottage or a grand Georgian and Palladian manor house, all the homes featured in this stunning book illustrate the epitome of styles that define the English house.

The delightful text details each house's quirks while highlighting the decorating approaches and design ideas-startling juxtapositions, new takes on tradition, witty visual puns, and bold new combinations. This is an ideal book for any anglophile and is equally appealing to anyone with an interest in interior decoration, with many design ideas that easily translate into interiors on either side of the Atlantic.

Sally Griffiths started writing after her own home was featured in British House & Garden 20 years ago. She runs a photo library called Red Cover and is the author of The English Country Cottage.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Each of these books uses color photographs to show the exteriors and interiors of homes found in their respective locales. Griffiths (The English Country Cottage) and McBride (Private Tuscany) visit homes from cottages to manors and include photographs of interiors, exteriors, and grounds with descriptions of the inhabitants' approach to restoration and decoration. Bariller and Klimi, both first-time authors, visit the homes of their regions with an eye toward how inhabitants have incorporated vernacular elements in their decor. Both include photographs of the region itself as well as photographs of the exteriors and interiors of homes; the majority of Klimi's book focuses on dwellings on the Greek islands. Purchase where there is an interest in contemporary interior design. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
