About the Author:

A passionate antiques and textiles collector, a writer, and editor for interior design and antiques periodicals, the author lives in Seattle, Washington.

From Library Journal:

The West Coast editor for Old House Interiors magazine, Coleman here reviews the use of vintage textiles from the 19th and early 20th centuries in domestic interiors. Filled with photographs showing how he has used vintage fabrics in his own home, the book explains the use of fabric in Victorian interiors and offers suggestions on how to re-create the look. Care advice and resources for fabrics are included, but, unfortunately, the minimal text contains scant historical information. For large interior design collections.
