Roger Banks-Pye was one of the most sought-after interior decorators of his time. Design director at the doyen of interior decoration Colefax & Fowler, his work appears traditional at first glance but is in fact spiced with innovation, originality and irreverence. This classic volume shows the decorator at work in a selection of the private homes he transformed with flair and panache, from a London studio flat decorated on a shoestring to a Scottish hunting lodge where money was no object. This book is a record of the spaces he created and there are accessible, practical and creative ideas to be picked up on each and every page. Inspirational Interiors allows a privileged glimpse into his unique world of style."--Provided by publisher."@en ;
