John Minshaw Designs
'It is in its pared-down luxury, however, that the house has its edge. All the panelling, architraves, doors, windows and skirtings were custom-made for the building; new floors were laid in rich brown or bleached oak boards, with limestone used for the hallway and bathrooms; at the flick of a Lutron switch, mood lighting changes the atmosphere of each room; and furniture and mirrors are scaled up to look just right in the large spaces, such as the oversized ottoman and sofa in the living room. Although the house is sparsely furnished, the pieces are of an enviably high quality.' The Times on John Minshaw's award-winnin...

A Gentleman's Refuge: A Work by Anthony Foster
Anthony Foster receives an invite from a dear friend, a horse lover (and for this reason a 'knight') to re-design, decorate and buy artworks for a 'shelter', a villa, starting the job from scratch. For Anthony Foster, the task provides an opportunity to work in complete freedom, having a dialogue with the linguistic variety of our times, free from any obligation with respect to periods and genres. The result is a structured space, which is at the same time eccentric and fluid, characterised by a clear atmosphere and a simple formality, classic in terms of symmetry, layout and brightness. The majority of the artworks ...
The Country Houses of Robert Adam: From the Archives of Country Life
Robert Adam is the only architect whose name appears in the "Oxford English Dictionary" to define a distinctive style, not only of architecture, but also of furniture and interior design. Given his pre-eminence it is not surprising that barely a year has passed since 1913 in which "Country Life" has not featured at least one article on Adam's work, and the magazine has accumulated an unrivalled archive of photographs of his buildings and their interiors. In this new book, Eileen Harris sets out to provide a pictorial survey of Adam's country and town houses arranged in chronological order to show the development of his ...
The Country Houses of Sir John Vanbrugh: From the Archives of Country Life by Je...
For those unfamiliar with the "From the Archives of Country Life ..." books, it is a tasteful series of fine architectural volumes that presents well composed black and white photos from articles originally appearing in the magazine of that name. Occasionally, as in the present volume, the archival material is supplemented by new color photography and current texts which do reference the former articles and commentary. Vanbrugh's almost meteoric rise to fame rests on remarkably few commissions, but such were their scale and detail that it is easy to comprehend how fully they must have occupied his time. This book exc...
