Format: Paperback
I have just purchased an Edwardian home which until I read this book thought was very similar to the Victorians - Not so! The book quite clearly sets apart the architecture and lifestyle differences between the two eras.
The chapters are well categorised into useful sections. The photos and illustrations were very comprehensive and it was nice to see the contrasts between UK and American architecture of that time. Illustrations from catalogues of the day were both amusing and useful.
From a renovating point of view this book has truly inspired me. I can now recognise the difference between Victorian and Edwardian fireplaces, furniture and iron work! The only unfortunate realisation this book brought home to me is that my house no longer contains some of the fantastic features typical of this era, to which I will endeavour to put back!

Six months into the restoration of a 1909 Edwardian house, I couldn't recommend this book highly enough. There are substantial differences between the Edwardian & Victorian styles, as well as confusing similarities. This book is invaluable for guidance and a great source of inspiration.
Whilst it cannot cover everything it should be your first point of reference.

Format: Paperback
Well written with beautiful photos.
This has been a vital reference book for our 3 year project to refurbish our 1905 in Worcestershire, UK.
The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that many of the pictures of stained glass designs are in B/W. We had to get a lot of stained glass remanufactured, so we had to guess colours.

Format: Hardcover
I have an Aussie Edwardian home (here it falls into the Federation Era architecture) and want to know how to decorate it.
This book had heaps of excellent photographs of Edwardian houses from the UK and America (but sadly few, if any from Oz). But my favourite parts were the drawings or sketches from catalogues of the day. The commentry is useful too.
The chapters deal with different regions of the house: exterior; hallway; bedrooms; fittings etc. It also had a helpful index of places where you can buy period bits and pieces for you home. This coveres UK, USA and Australia. For Oz at least it was sufficiently up to date.
The reason why it didn't get 5 stars is there wasn't quite enough for me on living rooms, and I couldn't find any pictures of Aussie houses.

I was disapointed with this book, it has more detail relating the outside
of the house than the inside.
i bought it looking for inspiration for a redecoration project on our
lounge and it didn't have enough pictures to give me the inspiration i was looking for.

This is a great book, packed full of photos and ideas for restoring Edwardian homes. I am currently renovating a 1910's property and have found this book to be a great resource providing lots of inspiration. Just a warning,this book contains all the same information as the "Edwardian House Style Hanbook", even though the author has a different name so, unlike me, just buy one or the other!

The book was brought to help with a Dolls House renovation project. It has lots of ideas and detailed photos and drawings to assist in making the house into an authentic Edwardian property.
