With delightfully spirited text and gorgeous photographs, Rooms to Remember captures an original approach to decoration. The look is inspired but never enslaved by the past, and relies not on money but on imagination and freedom -- the freedom to use illusion and visual excitement, ignore fashion, mix styles, and express personal vision. Barbara and Rene Stoeltie draw on elegant, original interiors as varied as an American country retreat, a French fisherman's dwelling, and an eighteenth- century Dutch manor house. Though wide-ranging in style, all are united by a spirit of invention; and the people who have created these eclectic and timeless rooms delight in sharing their expertise.
