"I do not think that young married people quite comprehend how much of their comfort depends upon the domestic arrangements." In nineteenth-century England, securing an advantageous marriage was an almost universal concern - but what happened after the confetti had settled? First published in 1887, this bestselling domestic handbook describes and advises how to avoid the perils awaiting couples setting up their home, from choosing a house and interior decoration to managing servants. At the time, From Kitchen to Garret encouraged popular interest in the nuances of domestic taste and economy; it now serves as a useful guide for those hoping to recreate Victorian decor, as well as giving a glimpse into an age when passions could be roused by wall-to-wall carpeting and a marriage destroyed by a husband's indigestion.
