This chronologically arranged set of case studies looks at how interior design has constantly redefined itself as a manifestation of culture, from the eighteenth-century to the present day. The book looks at the amateur activities of female "home makers" in search of creative outlets and married couples seeking to modernize their homes as well as the contributions of early professional (female) "interior decorators," and later, (male) "interior designers." It also considers the more anonymous role of commercial enterprises, such as hairdressing salons, cruise ships or modern offices. Issues relating to interiority, gender, and the relationship of the public sphere are also considered opening up a new level of design historical enquiry.
From the history of interior design to professional development, this guide completely covers the process of interior design - the development of a design concept, analysis of built spaces, programming and functional relationships, space planning, and design development presentations.

'Furnish for how you would like to live, not for what you want people to think.' When interior designer Frida Ramstedt moved from a characterful old apartment to a functional new build, she started to think about design in a new way.

In doing so, she distilled the secrets of successful interior design and styling. This is a book about what looks good and why, filled with practical tips and illustrations to help you work out what's best for your space and lifestyle - and to discover what your individual tastes really are. With advice on everything from how to hang curtains to how to apply the golden ratio, The Interior Design Handbook is an indispensable guide for every home.
