Overview

Perfect English Farmhouse celebrates the characteristic style and fascinating history of the classic farmhouse and shows how to turn your own home into a similarly welcoming retreat.

Farmhouse is a word that conjures an array of appealing associations: fresh eggs and baby lambs, chunky wooden beams and stone floors, cream teas and harvest suppers; a place of welcome and plenty. With their generous kitchens and meandering layout, the architectural informality of the farmhouse suits modern lifestyles. In Perfect English Farmhouse, via a series of case studies, Ros Byam Shaw explores both traditional and contemporary farmhouse style. The book is divided into chapters according to style: Organic, Traditional, Fresh, No Frills, and Funky, and at the end of each chapter a spread highlights the key elements of that particular decorative look. At the back of the book, there is also a comprehensive listing of UK and US sources to help readers create their very own take on perfect farmhouse style.

There is a reason the English country look is so popular and that is because it looks as if you can pull this look together without employing a decorator and it looks comfortable and you don't need to protect your rooms from your family. It shows rooms ready to be lived in and loved. Ms. Shaw knows you want to put your family things in, and shows homes filled with books, family pictures, animals and not over decorated, that you would gladly move in and settle down with your feet up. Pristine is not the word for these room, it is comfort, first and foremost. The photos are great and illustrate the book wonderfully. The author and photographer have worked together before and it shows. If this is a look you love, you will love this book.
