This book takes a detailed look at the design and decoration of domestic interiors in Europe and America during a period that has never before been considered in its own right. The homes portrayed include those of aristocrats and artists, members of fashionable society and the bourgeoisie. Their salons, studios, bedrooms, libraries, and bathrooms - from architectural framework to choice and arrangement of furniture, to the minutiae of personal taste - provide fascinating insights into the domestic life and fashions of the time. From the Old House Journal reference library.
