Intended for anyone who wants to restore original features in an Edwardian house, or simply to create the light gentility of that period in a modern home, this book looks at each room in turn, as well as the exterior and garden, in terms of how it was then and how antique and modern furniture, funishings and fittings can be used to recreate the setting. The book contains source material from contemporary catalogues, together with photographs of houses and finished rooms in Britain, Europe, North America and Australia. Major trends of the Edwardian period - including the Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Nouveau and the Queen Anne Revival - are all featured, with the work of architects such as Lutyens and Rennie Mackintosh, gardeners such as Gertrude Jekyll, and design houses such as Liberty and Heals.

From Booklist:

The style associated with the British king Edward VII appears very spare when compared with the Victorian style, which preceded it. Hockman provides a synopsis of the historical conditions existing shortly before 1900, setting the scene for design trends that ensued once Edward became king. Hockman's well-illustrated book offers a serviceable, informative resource for anyone wishing to restore an Edwardian ambience to interiors or hoping to find ideas and motifs for exterior renovations. Hundreds of decorative elements are reproduced, showing details of fac{‡}ades, furnishings, and fittings. Hockman also recounts the architectural themes that dominated building styles at the time, but perhaps most useful are photographs of contemporary rooms decorated with an eye toward capturing the essence of Edwardian design. Alice Joyce
