The Regency period (c.1780-1837) saw the development of what is today one of the most popular styles in architecture and design.
The combined influences of the antique and the exotic, together with the technological innovations of the day, produced a sophisticated style that was eclectic but also quintessentially British.
By examining the constituent parts of the Regency house in England and America - its architecture, doors and windows, plasterwork and ironwork, colours and coverings, services, furniture and gardens - this comprehensive and stimulating book will inspire not only the owners of period houses but also anyone with an interest in this uniquely attractive style.
