‘The definitive source book for anyone interested in the Arts & Crafts style ... stunning’ Period Living and Traditional Homes

Overview

Pamela Todd celebrates William Morris’s genius, presenting a thorough overview of his life and career, and showing how he envisaged and implemented schemes for interiors in his own homes and those of others. A series of ‘Case Studies’ explores six contemporary houses – from a modern London townhouse to a traditional Arts and Crafts home in Massachusetts – that have followed and adapted Morris’s dicta, brilliantly demonstrating how the style can be applied to our environment today. The book concludes with a comprehensive style-sourcing section, as well as a gazetteer of places to visit for inspiration.
