Perfect English Cottage explores 18 inspirational homes that celebrate the best of cottage style in the English countryside.
The book looks at the decorating and design solutions that make the cottages as attractive inside as out, as well as practical and comfortable to live in. Bestselling author Ros Byam Shaw takes a fresh look at this perennially appealing style, which she divides into five chapters: Character, Holiday, Romance, Simplicity and Elegance. The featured homes are incredibly varied, from a tiny house with exposed beams to a pared-down Georgian gem, to a picture-perfect cottage with roses over the door--and plenty more adorning the interior. Each section ends with a Get The Look page with ideas for recreating the style in your own home.
First published in 2009.
