"William Yeoward At Home" is all about enjoyment and the joie de vivre of living and entertaining. Whether it is supper for a couple of close friends, a weekend house party for ten or a birthday bash for a hundred, William Yeoward shows you how to create a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere in his usual inimitable and effortless way by revealing how he lives and entertains. Each chapter covers a different style of entertaining, and William highlights all you'll need for each occasion. "Rooms for Living" features the drawing room, living room and guest rooms, focusing on creating comfortable areas to make your guests feel at home. In "Weekend Guests and Entertaining", William offers his take on the essentials you'll need, whether hunting in winter or picnicking in summer. "Garden Living" covers hosting guests in the garden and summerhouse and how to create stylish outdoor settings. "City Living" features formal dinners in the dining room and relaxed evenings playing cards and backgammon.

William Yeoward's jewel of a shop on Chelsea's King's Road is justly famous amongst design devotees. The bright purple storefront leads to an interiors treasure trove crammed with extraordinary colour and texture, and the most beautiful tableware and interiors accessories you can imagine.

Unfortunately the shop is SO expensive that I've never bought a thing there - just filched multiple copies of Yeoward's dazzling product catalogues for my "just in case I win the lottery" scrapbook.

Well, set of balls number 7, I could really do with that win now.

'William Yeoward At Home' invites even greater lifestyle envy than his shop. It features Yeoward's country house (a Victorian Gothick schoolhouse and attached cottage) and his London mansion flat. Both are highly decorated, and truly gorgeous. Covet his vintage kitchenalia and trademark glass and crystal collections. Admire his zingy polka dot cushions, his Indian embroidered textiles, and his luscious dining chairs (each one upholstered in a different sweetie-coloured velvet, and often in contrasting fabrics front and back). Yeoward's very English Wiltshire garden is fabulous, and beautifully photographed. His guest cottage is the epitome of rural cuteness, but refreshed in a pastel palette that renders Farrow and Ball's many shades of murk instantly depressing. Yeoward's city flat is sleeker and more modern, and showcases his own range of furniture, much of it insanely desirable. Despite my inability to afford any Yeoward products of my own, I'm really delighted with this book.

Don't expect to use this book as a 'how to' guide, however. Sticklers for English etiquette will know that a man is never "at home", and Yeoward certainly lacks a woman's eye for practicality.

3.0 out of 5 stars First part better than the second 9 Jun 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you buy this book thinking it will all be in the same style as its cover, know that the first part focuses on William Yeoward's country home, the second on his city one - which is totally different and more modern. There is also very little information about the art of entertaining (the focus is almost entirely on decoration). I enjoyed it, but just not quite as much as I had hoped.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute delight 16 Sep 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I ordered this book as soon as I heard of it. I am a great admirer to William's style and have seen his houses in magazines over the years. When it arrived I sat down and devoured it. I loved it, in fact I want to be William's friend - oh for the chance to be entertained in that lovely Cotswold home. Lucky people who have been there. However, the next best thing it to buy the book and move temporarily in a wonderfully decorative world.

I bought the book for design ideas for a town house but prefer Yeoward's country home to his city house, hence only 4 stars. Some very good ideas to copy.
