Victorian revival, which the author defines as the rediscovery and blending of Victorian design and architectural details, has become a vital part of current design schemes. Filled with many carefully chosen, beautiful color photographs, this work highlights Victorian style as it appears in hallways, kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, special rooms, and outdoor spaces. The well-written text offers an abundance of practical and imaginative ideas for creating a variey of moods and atmospheres. Kemp shows how Victorian elements can enhance any style: traditional, contemporary, minimal, romantic, country, or eclectic. Appendixes cover working with a designer, and an excellent source of supplies listing completes a very useful catalog. Highly recommended. Mar garet Jean Owens, Santa Ana P.L., Cal.
