When I discovered all the wonderful books written by the English designer, Lady Henrietta Spencer-Churchill, elder daughter of the 11th Duke of Marlborough, I was hooked. I have several of her books (7 at last counting) and love them all! Her books never feel dated and are always relevant since the subject is always centered around classic, timeless design. If you love English design, you’ll love this book.

3 Things I Like About This Book:
- In this book Henrietta takes us through the various styles of classic design which including: Victorian, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Colonial, Federal, Queen Anne, Georgian, Empire and Arts & Crafts.
- The first part of the book gives us some of the history for both European and American interior design. In the second half we get to tour homes decorated in the various design styles mentioned above.
- Henrietta’s books aren’t just a pretty face. They are indeed beautiful and are filled to the brim with pictures of gorgeous rooms, but they are also an education in design styles, especially this one.
