Synopsis: 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.

Illustrated throughout with specially commissioned color photographs and original architectural drawings and plans, Classic Georgian Style is an essential resource for details of the period. Lade Henrietta Spencer-Churchill's own decorating sense informs her authoritative discussion of the style to allow an understanding of the spirit of period decoration and its place in today's interiors. This is a beautiful guide for decorators, collectors and those who cherish the refined tastes of Georgian England.

About the Author: Lady Henrietta Spencer-Churchill is the eldest daughter of the 11th Duke of Marlborough, whose family home is Blenheim Palace. Her interest in interior design began in the baroque grandeur of Blenheim and the other great houses in which she and her family live. She pursued this interest by studying fine art in Florence and Paris, and her formal studies were completed in England at the world-famous Inchbald School of Design.

Lady Henrietta now runs the highly successful interior design company Woodstock Designs, and undertakes commissions worldwide. Her fabric and wallpaper collections, marketed as Spencer-Churchill Designs Ltd, are sold through leading interior design stores, as well as in her own outlets in London and Woodstock, England, and through Grey Watkins in the United States. She has also designed two collections of fabrics and wallpapers for Marvic Textiles Ltd. She is a Fellow member of the Interior Decorators and Designers Association (IDDA) and a past president, currently Regional Director, of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) UK Chapter. Her latest venture is in British television for Granada Sky, presenting the program "Classic Interiors."
