Timeless Interiors is about capturing the romance of the past without throwing away your washing machine and living in an old fashioned way.
Primarily an inspirational source book, it shows how to recreate the tricks designers use. She shows why a room looks romantic and how to get that effect through colours, paint, wallpaper, flower arrangements or still-lives on a shelf.
The opening chapter of the book is a detailed story of the featured houses. The following sections are divided room by room : halls, sitting rooms, studies, bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchens and dining rooms.
The creators of these interiors are not all designers by trade, but with imagination they have created an individual and romantic style of their own.
