This book presents the colours, textures and aesthetics of the Tuscan Living.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » "The stately homes of England, how beautiful they stand ..." And stand, and stand .... for hundred and hundreds of years. For they are not just beautiful buildings, they are truly homes - generation after generation handing on the history and responsibility to those who come after. The houses described and pictured in this book are not 'stately' in this sense. They are amaller. and not necessarily inherited. But each one sits comfortably in the landscape, and enhances it. Sally Griffiths, and Simon McBride who took the stunning, perceptive and empathetic photographs, have chosen eleven houses from different periods: a Tudor Manor House, two village schoolhouses, two follies, a small farmhouse.... Some have been adapted, and changed over the years. All have survived the changes. The current owners have carefully, lovingly and respectfully decorated and furnished them to retain the atmosphere; but all are 'lived in'. We're privileged to go through their doors, and share their treasures.(Kirkus UK)
