Inspired by the Classicism of the great Italian architect Palladio, designers such as Burlington, Campbell and Kent adapted his ideas to the English climate. They thus created a new style which was to pervade town and country house design throughout England and become a major influence in the colonies of North America.

In this magnificent book, Steven Parissien explores the rise of Palladian villas in England and follows the style as it spread, through the use of pattern books, to the more average home. The book examines the origins, forms and development of the style through building materials, fixtures and fittings, as well as period colours and coverings, presenting the reader with a full picture of Palladian architecture, furnishings and decor.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Prettily illustrated, elegant and spacious in layout, Palladian Style is as much for reading as for reference."-Brian Sewell, Daily Telegraph
