'This book examines in lingering close-up the beguiling dream world he has created, faithful to what survived of Fowler's post-war schemes, embellished with his own bravura flourishes, a sophisticated Lilliputian elegance he dismisses airily as 'hodgepodge'. This celebration of a much-loved house includes titbits of decorating advice. For all its practical inspiration, however, this book is unabashedly escapist - and all the better for it.'

(Matthew Dennison Country Life)

'In one of England's most entrancing little buildings, King Henry's Hunting Lodge, we are treated here to a mere fraction of the Haslam decorating vision. Photographer Simon Upton has visited in all seasons, his sympathetic lens resting on this and that of note; Nicky's text and explanatory captions accompany, the touches of DIY included. The result is a compelling room-by-room tour.'

(Minn Hogg World of Interiors)

?This is a pleasurable book about pleasure. The literary style is mellifluous and intelligent. For those not lucky enough to know this wonderfully engaging man, this book about his equally engaging house is the next best thing.?

(Stephen Bayley Spectator)
