The Cotswolds (Gloucestershire, West Oxfordshire, and parts of North Wiltshire) have a rich history, stunning architecture, and glorious countryside. English Country Interiors features 18 specially photographed Cotswold homes, all with classic and singular charm. Each house belongs to a person with a particular trade, from bee-keeping and bookmaking to carpentry and cooking, and reflects the owner's work and interests. Many period-style buildings are showcased, including a mill house where an artist finds her inspiration; a 17th-century hunting lodge; and a terraced cottage where a farmer follows age-old agricultural traditions. Mark Nicholson's stunning photography brings alive this beautiful section of England-a favorite of both British and foreign tourists-capturing the essence and feel of each individual property.

This chronologically arranged set of case studies looks at how interior design has constantly redefined itself as a manifestation of culture, from the eighteenth-century to the present day. The book looks at the amateur activities of female "home makers" in search of creative outlets and married couples seeking to modernize their homes as well as the contributions of early professional (female) "interior decorators," and later, (male) "interior designers." It also considers the more anonymous role of commercial enterprises, such as hairdressing salons, cruise ships or modern offices. Issues relating to interiority, gender, and the relationship of the public sphere are also considered opening up a new level of design historical enquiry.

An unprecedented tour through the rich interiors and magnificent collections of one of the great houses of the English country landscape, and a treasure of British architectural heritage. Wilton House in Salisbury, England, has been the ancestral home of the Earl of Pembroke for nearly 500 years and boasts one of the most fascinating and varied histories of all Britain's historic houses. Shaped over centuries by the most significant names in architecture and interior design, Wilton is known as the finest example of Palladian architecture in England, with interiors by Inigo Jones and John Webb, furniture by William Kent and Thomas Chippendale, and unparalleled collections of both classical sculpture and Old Master paintings--with masterpieces by Raphael, Titian, Rembrandt, and Tintoretto among its rooms. The book explores the development of the house and its collections, from the Van Dyck paintings in Jones's remarkable Single and Double Cube state rooms to the Arundel marbles housed in James Wyatt's Gothic-revival cloisters. With a foreword by the Earl of Pembroke, a revelatory text by the historian John Martin Robinson, and imagery drawn both from Wilton's private archives and from eminent architectural and interiors photographers, this book lifts the veil on Wilton House and its remarkable history.

Interior Finishes & Fittings for Historic Building Conservation complements Materials & Skills for Historic Building Conservation, combining the history and application of each material with current knowledge of maintenance and conservation techniques. Of direct practical application in the field, it takes the reader through the process of conserving historic interior finishes, covering everything from decorative plasterwork, joinery and paint colour; to chimneypieces, lighting and fire safety management. The series is particularly aimed at construction professionals – architects, decorative arts historians and specifiers, surveyors, engineers – as well as postgraduate building conservation students and undergraduate architects and surveyors as specialist or optional course reading. The series is also of value to other professional groups such as commissioning client bodies, managers and advisors, and interested individuals involved in house refurbishment or setting up a building preservation trust. While there is a focus on UK practice, most of the content is of relevance overseas (just as UK conservation courses attract many overseas students, for example from India, China, Australia and the USA). The chapters are written by leading conservators, historians, architects, and related professionals, who together reflect the interdisciplinary nature of conservation work. This volume on the historic interior is the fourth of a series on Historic Building Conservation that combine conservation philosophy in the built environment with knowledge of traditional materials and structural and constructional conservation techniques and technology: Understanding Historic Building Conservation Structures & Construction in Historic Building Conservation Materials & Skills for Historic Building Conservation Interior Finishes & Fittings for Historic Building Conservation While substantial publications exist on each of the subject areas - some by the authors of the Historic Building Conservation series - few individuals and practices have ready access to all of these or the time to read them in detail. The aim of the series is to introduce each aspect of conservation and to provide concise, basic and up-to-date knowledge within four volumes, sufficient for the professional to appreciate the subject better and to know where to seek further help.

British West Indies Style is divided by island, from the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, British Virgin Islands, Jamaica, Nevis, S. Kitts, Antigua, St. Vincent, St. Lucia, Mistique, Grenada, Barbados, Trinidad, Tobago, to the less-traveled islands of Bequia, Dominica, British Guyana, and Montserrat. Author Michael Connors discusses the history of the British islands and the unique designs and styles found there during both the colonial era and the 20th to 21st centuries. The 250 photographs taken especially for this book capture the indigenous materials, detailing the hardwood furniture, linens, glassware, antiques, terraced gardens, walled courtyards, and tropical fruit orchards. This colourful new book explores the architecture and crafts of the region and looks at the design and color of many of the British islands' most beautiful private colonial, traditional, and modern homes. It looks at design and color both inside the home and out on the streets--giving ideas for the use of local materials, painting and stenciling techniques, environment-enhancing design, and indoor-outdoor living----all of which are being found more and more all over the world.

Peek behind the curtains of London's iconic theatres with acclaimed actor Simon Callow as your personal guide. This richly illustrated exploration of the most remarkable London theatres features witty and engaging texts by actor Simon Callow, whose knowledge of the city's dramatic venues is intimate and wide-ranging. One of the most prominent photographers of the past 50 years, Derry Moore, captures the theatres from every angle, whether it's a velvet box seat at the Novello, the view from the Theatre Royal, Haymarket's proscenium, or the grand entrance of the foyer in the Apollo Victoria. Exquisite close-ups of architectural elements--such as flamboyant Rococo Baroque friezes, William Edward Trent's Art Deco mermaids, painted marble pilasters, and elaborately framed mirrors--highlight often unnoticed features and present each theatre's unique character. From the West End to the South Bank, Westminster to Hackney, the theatres profiled here come to life in ways we rarely see, when the seats are empty and the stages silent.
