The author takes a detailed look at the design and decoration of domestic interiors in Europe and America during a period that has never before been considered in its own right. The homes protrayed include those of aristocrates and artists, members of fashionable society and the bourgeoisie. Their salons, studios, bedrooms, libraries, and bathroom - from architectural framework to choice and arrangement of furniture, to the minutiae of personal taste - provide fascinating insights into the domestic life and fashion of the time.
