The Victorian House Book : A Practical Guide to Home Repair and Decoration Hardback
No book gets to its 4th edition unless it is found to be useful.
With its 2,000 illustrations, 320 pages and 100,000 words, The Victorian House Book is the biggest and most comprehensive renovation manual available, offering you more inspirational decorating ideas and practical guidance than any other book on the subject. 'Head and shoulders above the rest' is how the RIBA book buyer described it.
Written by Robin Guild, one of Britain's most successful interior designers, the book explains how to modernize your house while preserving the original architectural features.
The emphasis is on sympathetic improvement: work with the architecture you have, not against it.
Windows, doors, roof-lights, fireplaces - all instil character and possess the power to embellish and enhance if treated in the right way.
