Description

Intended for anyone who wants to restore original features in an Edwardian house, or simply to create the light gentility of that period in a modern home, this book looks at each room in turn, as well as the exterior and garden, in terms of how it was then and how antique and modern furniture, funishings and fittings can be used to recreate the setting. The book contains source material from contemporary catalogues, together with photographs of houses and finished rooms in Britain, Europe, North America and Australia. Major trends of the Edwardian period – including the Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Nouveau and the Queen Anne Revival – are all featured, with the work of architects such as Lutyens and Rennie Mackintosh, gardeners such as Gertrude Jekyll, and design houses such as Liberty and Heals.
