Admirers of classical buildings usually focus on their exterior features - the domes, columns, pediments and porticoes that form an instantly recognizable architectural language. This is the first comprehensive, thematic study of classical and neoclassical interiors from ancient Rome to the 20th century, from Europe to the United States. Illustrated with photographs (many in colour), drawings and plans, the book outlines the principles of structure, proportion, light, colour and ornament that give the classical room its characteristic restrained elegance.
