All of the homes are original, stylish, charming, and authentic.
 
Author Violet Naylor-Leyland has profiled her friends and family—from society figures, titled aristocracy, and fashion and creative folk to a few wonderful unknowns—gathering together a mixed demographic with an emphasis on unique and inimitable style, represented not only by fashion but by interiors, possessions, and in some cases examples of the work of those featured. Marrying gorgeous design with Naylor-Leyland’s engaging and witty texts, this book provides rare access to the personalities featured, giving readers up-close insight into their personal tastes. Pairing gorgeous photos of interiors with engaging interviews with each subject, Naylor-Leyland shares how her subjects’ private spaces cultivate unique ways of living, working, and socializing. This book is perfect for lovers of interior design, fashion, and the distinctly English way of life.
