A practical and inspirational guide suggesting simple, cost effective ways of creating an interior decor that aspires to purity, color, and craftsmanship, as defined by William Morris

Rich natural colors, liquid floral patterns, light airy rooms, and simple wooden furniture are all radical principles of the Arts and Crafts movement, and are also the fundamentals of most modern decor. There has never been a better time for introducing Morris designs into the home, whatever the size or shape. Willow Bough, The Strawberry Thief, and Compton are just some of the many authentic Morris designs that are available today in sympathetic color renderings. Elizabeth Wilhide shows how these sumptuous wallpapers and fabrics can be combined with bare floorboards, oriental carpets, or simple paintwork in every modern living space?be it a small apartment, country cottage, or large townhouse. Chapters provide information on pattern-matching, wall and window treatments, floor coverings, tiles, and furnishings, so that a "Morris style" can be extended to whatever degree of authenticity desired. A comprehensive suppliers' list details where to buy Morris and Co. fabrics and wallpapers, and Arts and Crafts furnishings, while an illustrated glossary containing 60 of the best-known designs allows for easy pattern selection and identification.

About the Author: Elizabeth Wilhide was born in the United States and has lived in England since the l960s. She is a leading expert on interior design and has written numerous books on the subject, including Eco, Lighting: A Design Source Book, New Loft Living, and The Ultimate House Book.
