Victoria: At Home With Roses (Patterns, Petals And Prints To Adorn Every Room)

Victoria At Home with Roses pays tribute to this wondrous flower in all its incarnations, from rosebuds on the bedroom wallpaper to intricate needlepoint upholstery on the sofa, from bold china patterns to shy embroidered linens, from painted heirloom furniture to homemade potpourri. The rose has the power to create an "English cottage" look; transform the living room into a wedding celebration; set the table for tea for two or a Christmas banquet for twenty. It sweetens both bed and bath with rose-patterned linens and scents of rosy sachets and pomanders. And, of course, it makes even the tiniest garden sublime, turns the simplest bouquet into a masterpiece. More than 120 photographs stand as eloquent proof of the wonder and beauty of this flower at home.

I highly recommend this book. As usual, the Victoria people present every thing in its best light. The photographs are so beautiful, that you feel drawn in. The charm of the book is insurmountable.I always thought that any flower petals on tables needed to be cleaned up immediately. Somehow, in Victoria, what looks messy in my house is very chic in theirs. This is the essense of the book. It allows the reader to enter a simpler, more charming time. Most of us who have carted kids around, tried to keep our homes clean and still manage to work a full-time job yearn for this. It reminds us of our mothers or grandmothers and the stories they told us. It allows us to spend a few minutes enjoying a dream.

I have several books on roses and am happy to add this one to my collection. The book contains many references to the history and use of roses in many forms. There are recipes for making potions, waters, etc. along with many photos of rose arrangements. It is very nice to be able to purchase a book you missed many years ago.

I love this beautiful book! It is so inspiring! So many wonderful decorating Ideas,or just to sit down with a cup a tea ,and enjoy page after page of lovely roses! I missed out buying this book the first time it came out in the 90's,I'm so happy I found it on ,and in such great condition! and for a wonderful price,I definitely recommend this book for all those who love victoria magazine!

This is a soothing book to see and read, giving photographic examples of ways to display roses indoors and out.
