Review:

Artist Graham Rust has long aspired to decorate an entire house with murals and trompe l'oeil decorations. Since visiting Italy, he has been inspired by the frescoes of Veronese in the Villa Barbaro at Maser. His dream, although practically unrealistic, has finally been realised in this beautiful book. Basing his idea on an 18th century house designed by Sir William Chambers and later extended, he adorns every room with his truly wonderful and imaginative paintings. From the attic to the basement, via bedrooms, dining rooms, hallways and stairs. Designs from the classical to the contemporary, from the East to the West, botanical and zoological, all are encompassed under one roof, giving each room an intensely individual feel. Not just for professional artists, this book will also inspire the ordinary homeowner who wants to stamp their own personality on their house. Techniques are clearly explained and the theory behind his choice of designs well-founded. This is a remarkable book, full of inspiration and amazing ideas - a must for all those with an artistic bent and a love of the unusual. - Lucy Watson
