From Organisation to Decoration: An Interiors Reader is a reader for students, scholars and practitioners interested in the theories, processes and principles of the aspects of the theory and practice of interior architecture, interior design and interior decoration.

The book is divided into three parts, which reflects the focus of the different strands. It aims to contextualise, explore and clarify past and present debates in all three areas of the field of interiors. Each section is concerned with the processes, histories and ideas that shape the interior and includes discussions about development, identity, organisation, conservation, material and surface concerns and attitudes towards the host building. A broad range of writings are included - cultural theory, historical essays, scholarly papers, commissioned texts, extracts from books, interview transcripts, and magazine and newspaper articles. A case study and an annotated guide to further reading concludes each section, thus offering a succinct overview of the theories and ideas underpinning the interior for the beginner, as well as providing stimulation for students and practitioners in the field.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"So if the largely superficial treatment that interior design receives at that level wearies you, this vigorously thoughtful essay collection should work as a reminder that 'interior designer' is just as noble and intellectually exacting an occupational title as 'architect' or 'engineer.'" - Norman Weinstein, Designers & Books

"For anyone who wants to best understand the interior design, 'From Organisation to Decoration' is a strong addition to interior design studies collections, highly recommended." - Library Bookwatch
