Description
Is it possible to bring an entire country home with you? You certainly can, especially with Cheryl MacLachlan leading the way.  Her signature Bringing It Home® series, which previously explored the look and lifestyles of France, Italy, and Sweden, now offers a fresh perspective on the distinctive charms of England, revealing the many ways to enrich any home with the best of English decorating, design, and entertaining. With her usual wit, warmth, and erudition, Cheryl MacLachlan explains and demonstrates essential elements of English style. Displaying the ease and confidence of someone who really knows her subject, Cheryl examines England's comfortable interiors--the overstuffed sofas and chairs, rich, dark woods, classic patterns, and vibrant colors. She takes us on a room-by-room tour of the quintessential English home, providing insider tips, easy how-to's, and decorating hints, along with more than 250 gorgeous, full-color photographs. We get a close look at the furniture, fabrics, and decorative touches that make English style so appealing. We examine the English penchant for striking graphics, their celebration of flora and fauna, and their irrepressible knack for the eccentric touch. We are given a brief overview of the history of English style and explore various aspects of daily life in England, from entertaining to housekeeping, including, of course, the national pastime--taking tea. Cheryl MacLachlan also takes us for a stroll outdoors to study the key components of the lush English garden. The author closes her tour with an entertaining and enlightening discussion on the language differences between British English and American English. Bringing It Home--England explores the beauty and appeal of this fascinating country, revealing its many timeless charms. Learn what makes English life so welcoming--and then bring its best qualities back to your own home!
