Synopsis: Nancy Lancaster, who was born in 1897 into a wealthy Virginian family, became one of the greatest influences on interior decoration and garden design in Great Britain and America in the second half of the 20th century. She created what is known today as the 'English Country House Style' ? a mixture of faded colors, chintzes and painted and antique furniture. In the garden, she worked in a formal yet romantic neo-Georgian style, which is still a strong spirit in British garden design. This book examines Nancy's contribution to the arts of interior decoration and garden design by chronicling her own homes and gardens ?and her extraordinary life. Mirador, her family's Virginian country house, was to remain her key inspiration throughout her life. Nancy herself, her houses, her gardens and her friends are shown in an intriguing collection of photographs by distinguished photographers of the era, including Horst and Cecil Beaton.

About the Author: Martin Wood is a designer of textiles, interiors and gardens who also has a winning way with words.

Folio in b&w illus jacket; 200 pages : chiefly photos and illustrations; portraits ; 29 cm. Includes bibliographical references (pages 194-195) and index.

He also chronicles her remarkable life: her three very different marriages ('I was always better at picking butlers and husbands'); her dynamic design partnership with John Fowler; her interactions with friends and guests including her aunt Nancy Astor, Duff and Lady Diana Cooper, the Duchess of Devonshire (then Deborah Mitford), David Niven, Anthony Eden and - in the darkest days of the Second World War - Winston Churchill." "The story is illustrated by a collection of images of Nancy, her houses, her gardens and her friends, by celebrated artists and photographers of the era, including John Singer Sargent, John Lavery, Alexandre Serebriakoff, Cecil Beaton and Horst P.
