Here is a lavish and inspiring look at the romantic movement in design. More an attitude than a single visual approach, the romantic style is suffused with abundance and edged with fantasy, appealing to our desire to create a place where we, and those we love, will find pleasure. The interiors revealed in 150 evocative colour tableaux range from elaborate domestic theatre to voluptuously casual disorder, from elegance to enchanting whimsy. Warmly lit, cluttered with keepsakes and dressed in alluring fabrics, they beckon with the promise of comfort, intimacy and indulgence. 'In the Romantic style' explores the history of romantic design and describes in detail how curtains, drapery and coverings can soften an interior; how the arrangement of furniture and accessories can make a room infinitely seductive; and how surfaces and finishes can create a distinctive mood. For everyone who has ever yearned for a romantic oasis, this evocative book shows how the simplest touches can transform a room by imbuing it with romance.
