Exploring properties as diverse as a small Victorian townhouse and a former country dairy, she reveals how the design of each home has been reinvented for the 21st century. The book is divided into a series of key styles: Period Piece, Urban Chic, Rustic, Recycled Spaces, and Country House. this classic book, beautifully photographed by Christopher Drake, is now available in paperback. *Ros Byam Shaw combines the experts' advice with her own experience of renovation. *If you love old fireplaces and contemporary furniture, or you want a period piece, you'll find inspirations for transforming your old house into an elegant new home. *Each section includes ideas for furniture, lighting, fabrics, colors, and finishing touches appropriate for the particular style of interior.
