Brother and sister Charlie and Ros discover that they have inherited Ashenden, a beautiful eighteenth-century house that is set in acres of English countryside and in need of serious repair.

William Morris - one of the most influential designers of the 19th century and an important figure in the Arts and Crafts movement - revisited in this inspirational interior design guide. Rich natural colours, liquid floral patterns, light airy rooms and simple wooden furniture are all radical principles of the Arts and Crafts movement, and are also the fundamentals of most modern decor. There has never been a better time for introducing Morris designs into the home. Illustrated with a wide range of historical and contemporary decorative schemes, this practical and inspirational guide suggests simple and cost-effective ways of creating an interior decor that aspires to purity, colour and craftsmanship, as defined by William Morris. Chapters provide information on pattern-matching, wall and window treatments, floor coverings, tiles and furnishings, so that a 'Morris style' can be extended to whatever degree of authenticity desired. A comprehensive suppliers' list details where to buy Morris and Co. fabrics and wallpapers, and Arts and Crafts furnishings, while an illustrated glossary containing sixty of the best-known designs allows for easy pattern selection and identification

Sir Edwin Lutyens : designing in the English tradition by Elizabeth Wilhide( Book )
17 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 536 libraries worldwide
"This volume offers the first thorough examination of Lutyens's work in interior and furniture design, revealing its enduring relevance and appeal." "Elizabeth Wilhide traces the development of Lutyens's style and identifies the basic principles that informed his work, such as his finely tuned manipulation of space and light - an outsize staircase steals space but evokes spaciousness; a circular cook's table is flooded with natural light from an enormous lantern window in the roof. Reflecting his flexible, inventive mind, Lutyens's furniture and interiors are, like many of his buildings, precise and seemingly traditional, yet at a second glance whimsical, individual, and always supremely liveable."
