In The BNOTP Library: Bringing It Home: England

Every time I pull a book off the shelf to share, I invariably think, “I love this book, I should have already shared this one.” Then I remember, I always think that about all the books I’ve shared.

Bringing It Home England by Cheryl MacLachlan

3 Things I Like About This Book:

  • If you love English style, there is much to love in this book. The homes featured in the book look and feel like real English homes. No decorator show houses in this book, just lots of beautiful rooms.
  • Tons of pictures! If you’re looking for ways to cozy up a room and give it some personality, warmth and character, this book should give you a lot of ideas. Even if you don’t need any ideas, this book is just beautiful to go through!
  • After the introduction, there’s a chapter titled The Substance of English Style. That’s followed by chapters showing English decor in The Living Room, The Bedroom, The Dining Room, The Garden and The Kitchen. There’s a small section showing a timeline of English Design starting with Gothic in the late 12th century, going through the various styles over the years (too many to list here) ending with Arts and Crafts/Aesthetic in the 1920’s. Very helpful, seeing that!
