A TRUE English interior is not perfect, nor set-up and "staged" like those seen in interior design magazines. It evolves over time, incorporting different elements and eras.
If you are looking for a book where all is PERFECT in a home, where everything matches, and where there isn't a cushion out of place...move on.
If you are looking for true English style, then look no further, you have found a most enjoyable read and a feast for the eyes!!
I have another of this authors books: "Perfect English", and she never fails to provide a most beautiful book.
Only downside, it was printed in China, something (and the only thing) which I find a negative.
have seen already since years. Lots of untidy interiors of cottages in England and which is not really the
true English style you see in magazines like "Country Homes an Interiors". All you see in this book is sloppy
and shabby interiors you would not want to live in. I don't think she is doing the "English look" a favour in
showing such homes. The English cottages I know are completely different and much much nicer and romantic.
Believe me. Waste of money!!!!
