At Home in the English Countryside showcases a mix of casually aristocratic or glamorously bohemian country houses captured in original photography and lively text. Presented are the strikingly beautiful abodes of many of Great Britain's top international designers, from Paolo Moschino and Kit Kemp to Anouska Hempel and Sophie Conran. Canines of several sizes and breeds, among them pedigreed pugs, a whippet, and a terrier, are seen in their picturesque homes, full of chintz and antiques, and gardens of fragrant flowers alongside their beloved companions.

Each dog owner offers advice for sharing a home with his or her beloved canine companions. Collars (one of custom leather and green malachite), dog bowls of antique Spode porcelain, and chic and comfy napping spots are shown. Anglophiles will be inspired by the dreamy lives of these designers and their pups.

Reviews for At Home in the English Countryside: Designers and Their Dogs

Though Paolo Moschino and Philip Vergleyen's French bulldog Jack, who graces the cover of Susanna Salk's At Home in the English Countryside: Designers and their Dogs, would not be my choice for a canine companion (too precious), the pooch does illustrate the thesis of the book, namely that dogs have the ability to tie a room together in a way that a Ming vase can't quite. Through seventeen chapters, each featuring a famed British interior designer and his or her dogs--from Labradors to lurchers, Jack Russells to jaunty spaniels--Salk demonstrates how both canine art, and the dogs themselves, can alleviate the frightful grandeur of certain country homes, humanizing us in the process. --NEW CRITERION
