With 500 plates (half in color) Calloway (design and drawings, Victoria and Albert) illustrates the 20th century devotion to interiors as expressions of individual taste, national characteristics, and artistic and social aspirations. He charts the course of fashion and the influence of designers, decorators, artists, clients, and innovators in interior decoration in both America and Europe. The work is divided by decade each with an introduction discussing the main trends of the period and continues with many and varied illustrations--including photographs, paintings, drawings, and catalogue and magazine illustrations.
