William Morris – one of the most influential designers of the 19th century and an important figure in the Arts and Crafts movement – revisited in this inspirational interior design guide. Rich natural colours, liquid floral patterns, light airy rooms and simple wooden furniture are all radical principles of the Arts and Crafts movement, and are also the fundamentals of most modern décor. There has never been a better time for introducing Morris designs into the home.

Illustrated with a wide range of historical and contemporary decorative schemes, this practical and inspirational guide suggests simple and cost-effective ways of creating an interior décor that aspires to purity, colour and craftsmanship, as defined by William Morris.

Chapters provide information on pattern-matching, wall and window treatments, floor coverings, tiles and furnishings, so that a ‘Morris style’ can be extended to whatever degree of authenticity desired. A comprehensive suppliers’ list details where to buy Morris and Co. fabrics and wallpapers, and Arts and Crafts furnishings, while an illustrated glossary containing sixty of the best-known designs allows for easy pattern selection and identification.
