Présentation de l'éditeur

It is enshrined in English law that your home is your castle. Whether it is indeed a castle, a humble studio or a tree house, the principle remains that, in England, one's personal space is sacred. In An English Room, some of England's most prominent figures share their precious retreats and reveal their thoughts about Englishness, English rooms and the treasured objects within them. Benedict Cumberbatch divulges where he likes to read scripts; Stephen Fry invites you into his dressing room at the Apollo Theatre, London; P. D. James discusses the inspiration for her novel The Black Tower; and fashion designer Paul Smith contemplates the joys of his book-and-knick-knack-crammed office. The impeccably dressed Gilbert & George take you on a tour of their beautiful Queen Anne house, while Alan Bennett waxes nostalgic about his rumpled existence in Primrose Hill. Derry Moore's discerning eye captures the essence of the English room at home or abroad, whether it be a country cottage, large estate, exquisite chapel or an artist's studio. All those with a passion for English culture, society, design and fashion will take pleasure in this unique view into the private lives of some of England's national treasures. This book not only showcases the splendid and internationally recognised art of English interior design but also contains some of the finest examples of English portraiture today.

HASH(0x8f1fb498) étoiles sur 5 English Interiors Have Changed 13 décembre 2013
Par James M. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Beautifully produced book which is most enjoyable. Sadly, while English interiors remain top-drawer, I thought that the ones in Derry Moore's 1986 "The Englishman's Room" exhibited more individuality, charm, personality, whimsy, warmth and eccentricity. Used copies of that book are inexpensive; check it out.

HASH(0x8fea746c) étoiles sur 5 Extremely disappointing if your interest is English interior design 23 mars 2014
Par Decorating Diva - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I bought this book sight unseen. If your interest is in traditional English interior design and decoration, please save your money! I guess I should have paid more attention to the description and not the title of the book, An English Room, which I feel is actually rather misleading, suggesting to me, at least, a picture book full of English style decoration. Instead, the book deals with notable places (not necessarily rooms) identified by various English personalities, notable for their own reasons, often not related to design or decoration at all. There appears to be a standard format: each personality seems to have four pages devoted to him or her; the first page provides some text about the individual and the place, the second page is a photo of the individual and the third and fourth pages each show a photo of the place. Again, not all these places are actual rooms; some are not. For example, P.D. James' portion (after text on the first page and her photo on the second page) consists of a photo of a landscape with a 19th century tower, followed by another landscape photo. Her portion might very well be meaningful to a P.D. James fan, but of little interest to someone whose focus is English design. Similarly, the Duchess of Norfolk's portion depicts a treehouse in a landscape; the Marquis of Salisbury's pages feature a staircase and tapestry in a stately home. There are several artists whose sections follow a similar format: text on the first page, their photo on the second page and the third and fourth pages devoted to some presumably interesting (not to me, however) aspect of their often starkly unfurnished studio or home (for example, three pairs of shoes on a chair). My least favorite section of this book covers someone named Jill Ritblat and her pool room in her London home; there is virtually nothing within the four walls of the room except for a completely featureless rectangular in-ground pool which presumably can be covered over (as it is in one of the photos) and used as empty space for entertaining. I did enjoy the four pages on Benedict Cumberbatch who chose the Garrick Club Library as his location (as pictured on the cover and in the book). However, don't buy the book, as I did, thinking that his portion is representative of the rest of the book. It is not. I bought the book assuming that was the case and am extremely disappointed. I would most definitely return it, if I could.

HASH(0x8efa8e34) étoiles sur 5 Need to see rooms... 23 novembre 2013
Par Kat Lyn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A beautiful collaboration of photos and written word on rooms that hold such impact to their denizens. It shows both lovely interior and exterior architecture; but also reveals a passionate side to its occupants choosing them as personal places. I particularly have a preference for book nooks myself, so I give my approving nod to Simon Jenkins, Jeanette Winterson, and Benedict Cumberbatch on showing us theirs. But I also can see the comfort and security the others feel in the other nesting places such as theatres, churches, Indian ruins, art studios, homes, etc. These places can inspire design, comfort, and so much more for many people. It also makes me nostalgic for my childhood room, with its pink stucco walls textured down like flowing waterfalls. Silly really, but I miss those little things like that sometimes.

Don't waste your money on this n ook unless you enjoy looking page after page of empty rooms. I was expecting to see rooms like depicted on the cover. Very disappointed.

HASH(0x8ef0260c) étoiles sur 5 The cover is great, but the whole book is stunning 12 mai 2014
Par Born in a Library - Publié sur Amazon.com

I admit that the cover "GOT" me and the 4 page section where Mr. McDreamey describes his favorite room was not enough, but I loved the photos and essays from all the other notable subjects and their favorite rooms. It is not a "decorating" book, it is really a tribute and a testimony of what it means to have an English room.
Beautifully photographed and nicely written, it was defintely worth the price.
