Métropole commerciale, industrielle et culturelle, Londres attire comme un aimant créatifs et entrepreneurs depuis des siècles. Rien ne caractérise mieux la diversité et la vitalité de la capitale britannique que sa multitude de cadres de vie hors du commun. Cet ouvrage vous ouvre les portes d'intérieurs sans pareils dans le monde. Témoignages de styles allant du classicisme majestueux jusqu'à l'avant-gardisme, les photographies sont une invitation à découvrir certaines des résidences particulières les plus remarquables de la ville. De genres très différents les unes des autres, elles reflètent cependant toute cette attitude londonienne indéfinissable, composée d'un inimitable mélange de confort et de glamour. L'excentricité typiquement anglaise transparaît dans l'emploi de matériaux ainsi que dans des juxtapositions fort intéressantes. Ce livre richement illustré rend à merveille le luxe de demeures exceptionnelles conçues par de grands noms de l'architecture d'intérieur, dont Tara Bernerd, Rabih Hage, David Carter, Stephen Ryan, Veere Grenney, et enfin et surtout, Geraldine Apponyi et Monika Apponyi, les décoratrices de renom qui ont dirigé la publication de cet ouvrage. Vous ne manquerez pas d'être fascinés par la large palette d'intérieurs magnifiques et originaux que recèle cette ville époustouflante.

What is the difference between the 'Gothic' and 'Gothic Revival' styles? How can you tell an lonic column from a Doric column! To understand the many ways in which the British have decorated and furnished their homes, you must learn the language, which can be baffling to the lay person. Oliver Garnett guides the reader through the complex world of historical styles and ornament, drawing on examples from the unrivalled group of houses now in the care of the National Trust. First, he examines some of the broader stylistic issues: what do we mean by style? How is it created, disseminated, exploited, revived and reinterpreted? He then looks at some of the key 'building blocks' of style-the types of ornament that you will encounter most frequently in a historic building. Finally, he provides thumbnail sketches of the stylistic labels that have traditionally been applied to British interiors, from "Tudor" to "Modern Movement." Many of these labels conceal as much as they reveal, but the way that they have been creatively misunderstood by later designers is all part of the story of style.

Stylish interiors and happy dogs make the perfect home. You may have the coolest home on the street, but a house is not a home without a dog. So how do you keep your interiors Instagrammable when you have a canine companion, with all the associated paraphernalia of feeding bowls, leads, beds, and toys? As a dog-owner for over 20 years, and a former home buying manager at Selfridge's in London, UK, Geraldine James is the perfect person to show you how to incorporate dogs into your life without sacrificing your style or their freedom to roam the house and backyard. Whether you live in the city, in the countryside, or on the coast, your home can still look good with a few careful compromises. Then there are the "designer" dogs – dogs belonging to designers whose beautifully curated homes are none the less canine-friendly. And finally there's a special section on rescue dogs, and the joy they can bring to your life and your home.
