This book was the result of a collaboration between a historically-minded decorator and an architectural historian, both concerned with the preservation of English country houses. It explains how new forms of decoration were introduced and came to be used in the context of life in a great house. This is examined in the light of contemporary documents and with reference to interesting interiors still surviving, including Ham, Knole, Clandon, Houghton and Attingham.
