Simply exquisite.

On lovely, thick pages fourteen iconic English Country Houses are featured celebrating diverse styles beginning with the Jacobean, traveling through the Baroque, Palladian, Regency, Gothic Revival to the Victorian. In the foreword of this book, the English country house is described by Sir Roy Strong:

"They are never showy on the outside. Exteriors are always concerned with sobriety and silhouette, which only heightens the revelation when the door is thrown open and the visitor enters to be astonished by the dazzling opulence within."

The rooms in this book ARE a revelation--there are about 15 full-page and half-page photos of each home featuring rooms, details of rooms, chapels and noteworthy paintings, carvings, and sculpture in the homes. There is also an exterior view of each home.

The book explains that the English country house had a purpose beyond meaning to impress. They were, in the words of Strong, "cultural oases where it was possible to see Old Master paintings, antique sculpture, assemblies of rarities and substantial libraries, as well as collections of drawings, engravings and manuscripts." As England was ruled by a King/Queen subject to Parliament, the country house was more than a refuge for the owner, it was his power base. The King came to the owner's home, and stayed in the house's state rooms, not vice-versa.

There is a detailed history of each home from their inception to the present day by author/historian Jeremy Musson. You may want a timeline of English Royalty and a map of England to mentally place the homes as you read. A veritable dynasty of architects and designers worked on the homes from Inigo Jones, to William Kent, Robert Adam, Chippendale, John Fowler, David Hicks and David Mlinaric.

The photography is sublime by Paul Barker and from COUNTRY LIFE magazine files. It's a gorgeous volume which exceeded my expectations. The homes are museums of the finest furniture, tapestries, art and architecture throughout the history of England. The chapters may leave you feeling wistful, wishing to see more of each home. I wanted to see every room from the bedrooms to baths, to the kitchens and servants quarters.

You may want to learn more about the English Country House interiors after studying this book. I did. The cover is a beguiling view into what is inside.

HASH(0xa010de94) étoiles sur 5 Sumptuous and scholarly 23 janvier 2013
Par Toby Alleyne Gee - Publié sur

Countless books have been written on the English country house, and the subject never ceases to delight. Yet Jeremy Musson's sumptuous, beautifully photographed book explores some of Britain's great houses in unprecedented detail. His text is scholarly and extremely informative, without ever being dry, and brings the fourteen houses featured, almost all of which are still in use as private residences today, to life. He presents them in historical and political context as well as explaining how this influenced the major interior fashions and styles, from the 17th to the early 20th centuries, of which they are such fine examples. The author also shows how the English country house has never been a static, dusty affair, but has constantly evolved. I particularly enjoyed the chapter on "The English country house today", which details some late-20th-century renovations of - and even additions to - some of these venerable edifices, such as Castle Howard in Yorkshire. The detailed photography is a delight, showing gilding, sculpture, stucco work and furniture as well as grand enfilades and state rooms. For any aficionado of the country house, student of interior design or homeowner seeking inspiration, this is the perfect book.

For lovers of Palladio and Adam, English Country House Interiors is a real feast.
It is a must-have reference for those of us who can only dream of living in such
rich interiors. It is wonderful for fireside reflections. I have stacks of book
on the English Country House, and this is by far the best.
