Synopsis

Synopsis

In the aftermath of World War II, design was key to a new way of living as carefully thought-out principles were applied to new homes and commercial buildings across the country. From open plan living to new materials in buildings and furnishing, the 1950s marked a bright new era.

[In reference to 1930s Home, 1940s Home and 1950s Home]: "Lavishly illustrated with photographs, ephemera and wonderful period advertisements, all three of these books take one through a good overview of British architectural design, house construction, furnishings and decor, and gardens." - Kitchen Retro, kitchenretro.blogspot.com (October 2009)
