200 pp, illustrated in colour and black and white. 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 colours, 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. 0711224293
