Timeless grace and charm: that's the hallmark of the Victorian style, with its exquisite lacework, fine china, pretty keepsakes, and loving attention to detail. Recreate that era in your own home and watch every room turn into a luxurious retreat, glowing with femininity and warmth. Splendid photographs on each page present so many entrancing ideas to choose from: a table runner makes an elegant window valance, a worn table looks well-dressed in linens and laces, and treasured items present their best face to the world in one of these perfect displays. And don't forget the new: just-bought trinkets and glassware become more alluring when placed side by side with antiques and heirlooms. So, tuck fresh flowers everywhere, and let your imagination lead you to a romantic sanctuary. A Selection of Country Homes & Gardens Book Club.
