About the Author

Jeremy Musson is an expert on the British country house and author of twenty books. He was architectural editor of Country Life magazine for many years and remains a regular contributor. Hugo Rittson Thomas is a portrait photographer


If all philosophy is said to be 'a series of footnotes to Plato, ' then all English decorating might be said to be a series of footnotes to Sibyl Colefax and John Fowler, whose eponymous business has long survived its original partners. Their genius was, as the architectural historian Jeremy Musson has it, for 'creat[ing] interiors of a kind of self-conscious nonchalance, suggestive of long occupation and possession.' A new book from Rizzoli, with text by Musson and photographs by Hugo Rittson Thomas, presents English country house style in full flower. Expect soft sofas (never 'settees'), worn rugs, chintzes, and the ubiquitous Aga range. --NEW CRITERION
