Country Chic has always been a popular decorating style
and it is not hard to see why -
country decorating is comfortable and accessible;
it is forgiving of wear and tear, of less than perfect combinations,
and provides an oasis of warmth in a high-pressure world.
Interior decorator Beatrix Kleuver is a real outdoor person.
Nature and history are her great sources for inspiration.
In Country Chic she enthusiastically carries the reader along with her
into the interiors of a number of historic and contemporary country estates,
using photographer Jan Verlinde's many beautiful photographs.
Including interiors designed by Beatrix Kleuver herself,
this publication also features photographs of the private home of Laura Ashley,
a mansion designed by William Morris and
the sleeping room of Dutch princess Juliana,
making it an exciting read for any aspiring interior designer.
