Classic Georgian style by Henrietta Spencer-Churchill( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Classic Georgian Style Henrietta Spencer-Churchill explores the Age of Elegance, a heritage which is strongly evident in her own classic style. She tours a variety of Georgian houses and estates throughout the British Isles to give a fascinating overview of the period (1700-1830)." "Looking first at the styles and fashions of the time, we are given a real sense of Jane Austen's England - the refined elegance of the furniture, the classic lines of the architecture and the rolling slopes of Capability Brown's landscapes. Next comes a detailed look at Georgian exterior elements - the architecture in its setting, including town and country buildings, cottages and grand estates, courtyards and lodges, follies and outbuildings. Moving indoors, we examine the rooms and decor in fine detail, from hallway to living room, staircase to bedroom, with all the furniture, moldings, finishes and textiles that made the era unique." "A final, invaluable section in this complete source of Georgian style provides a palette of paint colors and short biographies and style guides of the influential architects, cabinetmakers and craftsmen of the period, such as Robert Adam and George Hepplewhite."--BOOK JACKET

In Classic Fabrics Henrietta Spencer-Churchill shares her knowledge of the long history and art of decorating with fabrics, enabling anyone to recognize and use traditional textures and patterns to shape great rooms. The first section of the book examines the history of fabrics, from medieval tapestries and eastern silks, to eighteenth-century Toile de Jouy and the latest innovations in synthetics. This is followed by a series of beautifully photographed rooms that show how textiles are used in the home for curtains and drapes, table linens and bedspreads, cushions and lampshades, and the more specialized canopies and awnings. The final section describes the textures, patterns, and weaves of cottons, linens, wool, silks, satins, velvets, damasks, jacquards, laces, and tapestries. Finishes such as felting, glazing, waterproofing, and moire are explained, and hundreds of fabric samples are reproduced. Illustrated with over 200 vibrant color photographs, Classic Fabrics offers hundreds of inspirational ideas and practical tips
