You can get a privileged look behind the impressive portals of England’s great country estates in all their resplendent finery thanks to a lavish new book by renowned British architectural historian Jeremy Musson from Rizzoli.

English Country House Interiors is a stunning volume that more than does justice to some of the most luxurious décor in the world. The aristocratic residences of dukes, earls and lords constructed over the last centuries are examined in unparalleled detail with specially-commissioned photographs by Paul Barker.

For the luxe tome Musson and Barker were granted unrivaled access to fourteen world-famous estates long celebrated for their amazing architecture and furnishings. Many of the houses featured in the book played host to royalty and are suitably majestic.

Covering the major periods of English country house decoration, there are chapters on the Jacobean manor house, the Georgian mansion, and the Gothic Revival castle among others with examples including Wilton, Chatsworth, Houghton Hall (above) and Castle Howard, famed as the setting for Brideshead Revisited. Go to Amazon.com to learn more.
