One of the classic works on interior decoration, Edith Wharton’s The Decoration of Houses offers a comprehensive look at the history and character of turnofthecentury interior design. Cowritten with architect Ogden Codman, Jr., this invaluable reference provides us with numerous keen and practical axioms for house design, such as (1) The better the house, the less need for curtains, and (2) the height of a wellproportioned doorway should be twice its width. In the words of John Barrington Bayley, President of Classical America, “this book has charm. The Decoration of Houses brings to mind the pictures of Walter Gay: There are the reflections in lookingglasses, and on parquet, and the garnitures of chimneypieces, boiseriers, the odor of wax, outside the tall glazed doors there is a sunny silent terrace, we are now at Mrs. Wharton’s Pavillon Colombe a well laid out parterre, a rose garden, and an orchard of Reinette apples and luscious double cherries.”
