An intimate celebration of British country life with all the hallmarks of how design and dogs are as intertwined as roses and Wellingtons. This dreamy look into some of the most beautiful country homes and gardens in England, lived in by many of Britain's brightest design stars and their dogs, is brimming with inspirations. At Home in the English Countryside showcases a mix of glamorously bohemian and casually aristocratic country homes captured in original photography and lively text. Presented are the striking and chic houses of several of Great Britain's top international designers, from Paolo Moschino and Kit Kemp to Anouska Hempel and Veere Grenney. Beloved canines of several sizes and breeds, among them whippets, Labrador Retrievers, lurchers, Cavalier Kin Charles spaniels, and Jack Russell terriers, are shown in their picturesque homes and gardens of fragrant flowers. The designers offer ideas on how to live stylishly with their dogs. Seen are dog collars (one of custom leather and green malachite), dog bowls of antique Spode porcelain, and chic and comfy napping spots. Anglophiles will be inspired by the lives of these designers, who are devoted to their canine companions.

Author: Roy Strong
Sir Roy Strong and his wife, the designer Julia Trevelyan Oman, have lived in the country for nearly thirty years. In 1987 he was asked to write an occasional column reflecting this quintessentially English way of life for the prestigious magazine A Country Life. This charming book brings these popular pieces together, portraying the passing of the seasons in what the author describes as his 'beloved adopted county' of Herefordshire. A Country Life is a wide-ranging kaleidoscope of memories and observations, embracing the countryside, gardens, cooking, and remembrances of things both long gone and only yesterday. The author writes lyrically of the arrival of the bright green tarragon shoots in spring; of the delights of eating al fresco; of making sorbets from blackberry and quince; of the russet beech hedges in winter and the sweet nostalgia that comes from unpacking Christmas decorations. The keynote of A Country Life is delight--a portrait of life in the English countryside, which seems as old as time itself.

Fascination with the Bloomsbury set - Virginia Woolf, Leonard Woolf, Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Lytton Strachey. Dora Carrington among others, never ceases. Bloomsbury at Home is the story of the friendship between a group of witty, lively, like-minded, highly-talented individuals who came together during the first half of the twentieth century. The book is divided by biography and geography into chapters centering on specific people and places, for example, Garsington, the home of Lady Ottoline Morrell, and Hogarth House in Richmond, home to Viriginia and Leonard Woolf, and of course no book on the Bloomsbury set would be complete without mention of Vanessa Bell's home at Charleston. Illustrated with a wide range of colour and black and white photographs, memorabilia (everything from menus to postcards). portraits and paintings by members of the group. Pamela Todd assembles a detailed account of how and where the Bloomsbury group grew up, interacted and lived together during the first half of the twentieth century producing some of their finest work, as well as evoking the richness of that extraordinary period in English art and literature.
