About the author

Henrietta Spencer-Churchill is the daughter of the 11th Duke of Marlborough and spent her childhood surrounded by the exquisite architecture of Blenheim Palace. She lives in London and Woodstock, and runs the highly successful interiors company Woodstock Designs. She is the author of eight books, including Georgian Style and Design (ISBN 978-1-908862-29-7), also available from CICO. The author is based in Woodstock, Oxfordshire.

This inspiring and invaluable book showcases some of Henrietta Spencer-Churchill’s favorite projects. Whether working with authentic Georgian interiors, apartments, or newly-built homes, Lady Henrietta brings her perfectionist talent to the task of marrying comfort and practicality to the spirit of eighteenth-century elegance and timeless classical proportions. Georgian Style and Design for Contemporary Living is lavishly illustrated with specially commissioned photographs from the author’s portfolio of work, and contains insights into how the design process works at a practical level. With chapters looking at each room in the home individually, from the dining room to the home office and media room, discover Henrietta’s secrets for achieving the ultimate blend of Georgian style with the needs of a modern home. This is the classic design template for twenty-first-century living.
