Here is a compact and useful guide, filled with original drawings, which detail the changing uses of space within houses over the centuries. In addition, it shows developments in fashion, decoration, and furniture within different rooms and how these have steadily evolved with the passage of time. The book covers an immense range of interior styles from 1500 to 1960. In addition there is a glossary of terms and a historical time chart. The book will prove invaluable to those who visit period homes, and at the same time will give useful pointers to those planning to restore their own home in a particular period style.
