Irish country style evokes both richness and simplicity, with wonderfully textured natural materials, earthy colours and uncluttered interiors where the beauty of individual objects shines through. IRISH COUNTRY shows how to recreate this look in your own home, wherever you may live. Focused around the work of Nicholas Mosse and also drawing on many other examples, it looks at the essential elements of the style, including pottery, fabric and furniture. Each chapter opens with fascinating information and history, covering everything from traditional spongeware motifs to the regional variations in Irish linens. Practical information, including step-by-step projects, then enables the reader to bring these ideas into their own home, with sections on decorating pottery, for example, embroidering and using linen for all kinds of purposes, or decorating an Irish country-style table. This fascinating and personal book will enable anyone to enjoy some of the quiet simplicity and magical atmosphere of Ireland in their own life.
