From Sloane Square to Notting Hill and from Spitalfields to Piccadilly, discover the most original and exceptional homes that London has to offer. Barbara and Rene Stoeltie take readers on a diverse and personalized journey through London in this selection of the most elegant, quirky, bold, and original residences of the capital city. Take a tour through the homes of the interior design elite, from Christopher Gibbs's classic English home on Cheyne Walk to David Gill's cavernous renovated glove factory in Vauxhall; from Gabrielle Cross's extensive collection of inherited art to Sera Hersham-Loftus's ultra-feminine Victorian house in St. John's Wood; and from Anthony Redmile's antique-filled abode to Duggie Fields's post-modernist art collection housed in Earls Court. Readers can integrate ideas into their own home, as the Stoelties, true connoisseurs of the world of interior decoration, dissect the style of each home in concise and enlightening texts accompanied by exquisite photography. This volume presents an exclusive array of London homes that perfectly reflects the diversity and eclecticism of the city's inhabitants and will also provide a source of inspiration for contemporary interiors.

London's historic houses and domestic interiors have suffered greater loss and change than most of their provincial counterparts due to political and social change, war, and a tradition of continuous rebuilding. The photographic archive accumulated over the past century by the magazine Country Life forms a remarkable and evocative record of houses as they were. In this latest collection, the vanished magnificence of the great 18th-century houses of the aristocracy, from the glamorous Rococo interiors of Norfolk House to the Gothic Pomfret Castle. Other houses are seen at key moments in their history: Robert Adam's Home House occupied by Samuel Courtauld and his celebrated collection of Impressionist masterpieces; the monumental Classical interiors of Dorchester House, photographed shortly before they were swept away. In addition to many images of spectacular turn-of-the-century opulence, the book also reflects fashionable taste between the wars: Lady Diana Cooper's bathroom, Chips Channon's staggering dining room, and Lord and Lady Louis Mountbatten's elegant apartment.

As London has discovered a more urbane attitude to interiors, a wealth of designers and architects has begun a revolution in the treatment of the capital's interior spaces. New London Interiors brings together the best work of the new millenium - including houses, apartments, restaurants, bars, museums, art galleries, theatres, cinemas, boutiques, salons, gyms, and even schools, colleges and offices - and shows how interiors are the springboard for some of Britain's brightest architectural talents, and a field that engages some world-renowned names. Critical texts by architecture critic Kieran Long evaluate the projects in the context of design, architecture, materials and fashion to create an absorbing snapshot of the state of contemporary interior design.
