From the publisher's description, "Elsie de Wolfe is a legend in the world of style. Founding Mother of the decorating profession at the turn of the century, she remained its most famous and successful practitioner for fifty years. She made chintz chic, raised stripes to stardom, bought trellis indoors, put fine French furniture on the map-and leopard print on chairs, cushions, and carpets. Engagingly written and chockablock with photographs and color renderings of her own work and of rooms by contemporary designers that echo her ideas. Captures both the spirit and the substance -and presents an original, uniquely stylish view of a truly unique woman." A sharp, bright copy of this important book.
