This text explores the appearance of the style in the design of Palladian villas in early Georgian England, such as Marble Hill and Stourhead, and in 18th-century America. The book follows the style as it spread to the average home through pattern-books written by Gibbs, Robert Morris and their prolific successors, Batty Langley and the Halfpenny brothers. Focusing on the typical Palladian style house between 1715 and 1755, the book explains how to recognise the key motifs fo the style. It examines the origins, forms and development of the style through building materials, fixtures and fittings, and period colours and coverings, presenting the reader with a full picture of the architecture, furnishings and decor of the period. Paperback, 240 pages.
