Don’t be put off by the cover. This otherwise handsome book, which complements Adam Lewis’s memorable “Great Lady Decorators” (of which we have already written), examines the homes of sixteen celebrated ladies, many of whom designed their abodes themselves.

Featuring such figures as Lady Diana Cooper, Sybil Connolly, Bunny Mellon and Pauline de Rothschild, who worked in turn with the likes of John Fowler, Albert Hadley and Syrie Maugham, the results are an elegant cocktail of social history and high design that comfortably matches its predecessor.  A perfect pairing for aficionados.
