First edition. "'The English Room' takes you on a room-by-room exploration of the English home, contrasting town with country life, rooms designed for pleasure with those for more practical needs, and rooms meant to receive visitors with those that are private retreats. Country cottages and London flats, high ceilinged drawing rooms and farmhouse kitchens all conjure up the essence of English life. Chippy and Keith Irvine cover the history and changes in customs that have contributed to the creation of the English home, providing inspiration for today's interior decorator" (the publisher).
