Great literature and decorating style is matched with home decor items. Kenneth Grahame, author of Wind in the Willows description of "The linen . . . . though it was clean of course, smelt beautifully of lavender." Anne of Avonlea is one of my favourite books. In Green Gables, she "made the tea table, a thing of beauty," by scattering roses in her own artistic way. Each item is mentioned with the book and then a description of how you could use them in your own home. Page 365 has a beautiful gold chair that just must be seen! Wonderful ideas, that are definitely worth a look!

Beautiful book with lovely connections to literature. I'll have to read some of the ones I've missed. I'll take this book out again I'm sure.
