9780711232198: Sister Parish: American Style

Sister Parish was the grande dame of American twentieth-century decorators and is credited with developing the style of interior decoration known as 'American Country Style'. Parish-Hadley, the decorating firm she founded and ran with her business partner, Albert Hadley, was extremely successful and it produced a huge body of work, but Sister's most famous client was Jacqueline Kennedy, for whom she worked at the White House and at Glen Ora, a presidential retreat in Virginia.
This is the most comprehensive record yet of the work of Sister Parish, grande dame of American twentieth-century decorators and originator of 'American Country Style'.

About the Author:

Martin Wood is an established textile and interior designer. His books on influential figures in the history of design include Nancy Lancaster, John Fowler, Laura Ashley and Sister Parish, all published by Frances Lincoln.

Review:

In place of the prissy Regency Revival, she offered a relaxed old-money look, part opulent, part hand-me-down. Chippendale mirrors and Aubusson rugs were undercut by patchwork quilts and crocheted throws, and personalised by flashes of garish colour and painted floors. Above all, as Martin Wood shows, it was the approachability of her rooms - 'comfortable for forty, comfortable for four' - that saw her ferocious peke hold sway for so long.
