This celebration of Victoriana invites readers to rediscover the sublime pleasures of that singularly opulent era. Lavish, ornate, and elegant, Victorian style was driven by the adage that “nothing should ever be done halfway.” Focusing on the details that characterize the Victorian aesthetic—from symmetrical arrangements to layered lace cover-ups—this beautifully illustrated guidebook encourages today’s decorators to embrace the bold stylings of a more extravagant age. Replete with suggestions for introducing royal touches to even the most modest home, the book includes directions for specific projects as well as a definitive directory of resources for Victorian decorating.
A Selection of the Homestyle Book Club.
