Description
From the old Palace of Westminster to Louis XV's Petit Trianon at Versailles, and from the set of Gone with the Wind to his own grandmother's sitting room, the author of The Secret Lives of Buildings takes us to interiors that have been changed or even erased by the passage of time. In this history, Edward Hollis exhibits a novelist's knack for highlighting the telling detail in any scene, and relates many intriguing anecdotes, to re-create rooms of the past, and consider what they tell us about the world of today.

"[Hollis] dazzles and dizzies the reader in this cultural history of interiors.... Like the interiors he's celebrating, Hollis's book is a meeting place of ideas, history, objects, and personal interpretation.... The results are deeply satisfying."Publishers Weekly
