Synopsis: Rich, natural colours, light airy rooms and simple wooden furniture - all radical principles of the 19th-century Arts and Crafts movement pioneered by Morris, that are still fundamentals of modern decor. This is a practical guide to creating an arts and crafts design in your own home - whatever its size or shape. Snakeshead, Eyebright and The Strawberry Thief are some of the many authentic Morris designs available today as fabric or wallpaper, which draw inspiration from nature and revel in soft, free-flowing forms. These sumptuous patterns can easily be combined with bare floor-boards, oriental carpets or simple painted furniture, in either a modern or traditional home. This practical and illustrated guide by Elizabeth Willhide shows the reader a variety of simple and cost-effective ways of creating a Morris style that will complement your own modern living space, and can be extended to whatever degree of authenticity you desire. Chapters provide information on pattern matching, wall and window treatments, floor coverings, tiles-and furniture. A full colour glossary of Morris and Co wallpapers and fabrics will make pattern-choosing easy, while a suppliers' list contains essential addresses of both antique and reproduction stockists.
From Library Journal:
Morris (1834-96) was an amazing figure, an accomplished painter, poet, translator, weaver, and typographer; a designer of stained glass, tiles, carpets, furniture, and tapestries; and a socialist organizer. Wilhide focuses on Morris's zeal to "Bring art back into people's lives" via his stunning wallpapers and furnishings, which drastically changed late 19th-century English interiors. While the book is well written and researched, its special appeal is the inclusion of numerous lush photos of historic rooms decorated by Morris & Co., along with contemporary rooms decorated from current sources. For the decorator or renovator interested in achieving the Arts and Crafts style, there is an illustrated glossary of current suppliers, dealers, and collections. An essential companion to William Morris by Himself (Little, Brown, 1988) and Linda Parry's William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement (Portland House, 1989). Highly recommended for public and academic li braries.
