I love the size of this book (9" x 11"). I actually chose this book based on the cover. It is so cheerful, cozy and bright. There are twice as many pictures as there are pages. The photographs are spectacular. The book is divided into 5 chapters; Romance, Character, Holiday, Simplicity and Elegance. At the end of each chapter there is a useful review picking up on ideas and also a comprehensive directory of sources. You can get the Perfect English Cottage look for yourself!
This book with it's pictures and stories took me to a place that I want to have in my home all the time. I can picture the cobblestone lined streets, thatched roofs and roses around the door. This book makes a great addition to any home enthusiast's collection!
So I say HUZZAHHH! 5 stars & a Cornish pasty!
The homes are much more about practical necessity than about decorator style, and they feature the kind of comfy, unmatched style of home that you can picture the characters of some mystery novel by Agatha Christie living in. There are glorious antiques galore, pots of just picked flowers from the garden, and the paintings of ancient relatives hanging above a fireplace.
Just the thing to sit down with a cup of tea, and enjoy browsing through.
