Books By Author David Heathcote

Seventiestyle by David Heathcote Seventiestyle, Paperback (November 2006)

Talks about home decoration, furnishings and interior design from the 1970s.

70s House by David Heathcote 70s House, Hardback (November 2005)

Often associated in the public's imagination with the excesses of Punk and Glam, the 70s was, in fact, an important watershed for interior domestic design. It marked an essential transition from the Modernist-dominated design culture of the 60s to an era in which style and the individualistic ethos of fashion design became the guiding principles.
