Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Conservatories and sunrooms have undergone many transformations in construction and design, and with the advent of modern glass technology and improvements in controlling temperature and ventilation, they have an ever-increasing range of uses. Diana Yakeley, a renowned interior designer and past chairman of the British Interior Design Association, explores every aspect of conservatories and sunrooms, from their genesis and construction to practical ideas for their style and usage, with inspirational ideas for formal or informal designs, planting schemes and practical considerations such as materials, ventilation and lighting. There are detailed scale diagrams, step-by-step instructions and checklists, as well as practical information on the properties and benefits of different materials. No conservatory would be complete without proper attention to the finer details, and there is an invaluable section on interior stylings, covering lighting, color schemes, furniture and soft furnishings. A beautifully illustrated chapter on planting contains helpful suggestions on choosing the best plants for achieving different effects, with advice on planting for form, color and scent; sculptural planting schemes; and growing a wide variety of different plants. There then follows a section of basic step-by-step techniques, such as pruning, propagation and dealing with pests and diseases, as well as a directory of the most suitable plants for conservatory conditions.
