English Country Interiors by Sarah North,Mark Nicholson Pdf
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.
Interior Design and Identity by Susie McKellar,Penny Sparke Pdf
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.

Comfort, simplicity, and elegance are the main characteristics of country interiors, making them the perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of modern living. Katrin Cargill draws on the enduring appeal of traditional rural homes to present a new, updated, easy-to-achieve approach to interior style. The unique "Easy Country" look brings together design influences from around the world. It is a distillation of elements associated with English country cottages, Shaker meeting houses, classical Swedish interiors, simple Mediterranean farmhouses, and the homes of the early American settlers. Katrin offers her own inimitable interpretation of the components of these styles to produce a look that is entirely her own—relaxed, unpretentious, and full of character and warmth. • The style is not confined to homes in the depths of the countryside. It is equally effective in a tall townhouse, a tiny one-bed studio, a small row house, an urban loft, or a weekend cottage. • Illustrated throughout with vibrant photographs by Simon Upton.
