In the popular book, the authors deemed Victorian-style interior décor and interior design irrelevant. Call it a reaction to the decadence and gilt adorned stuffiness of interior design and architecture through to the 40’s if you will, as at the time of its inception, mid century modern decor was a complete rebuttal and restart for the senses. The vibe is fresh and poppy, retro-tinged, and completely alluring with its dedication to comfort and practicality wrapped up in beautiful design that never goes out of style.

HISTORIC INTERIORS with THE WORLDS OF ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST in parenthesis was published in 1979, hardcover, by The Knopp Press. Each of the 18 chapters features a historic house in a new presentation of material previously published in the magazine. Each chapter begins with a page of text followed by illustrations, all color photographs. There is a wide range of houses presented, some now museums and some still private homes; all are interesting.

Sagamore Hill, the summer White House and home of President Theodore Roosevelt, is shown with little changed from the early 20th century. The Marble Palace, Calcutta, shown still inhabited by the descendants of the raja who built it in 1835, is another almost time capsule. The post-White House of President Woodrow Wilson and his almost-President wife is an early example of handicap accessibility, now preserved as a museum of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Ima Hogg's home Bayou Bend in Houston was surely always tended to be the museum it is today, but no doubt is was a wonderfully liveable home too.

The colonial houses saved from destruction by Doris Duke by her Newport Restoration Foundation are furnished attractively but not strictly to period standards in these pictures; most are rented and not presented as museums. Mercer House in Savannah, GA, is shown as the home of antiques dealer James Arthur Williams, but later it was to become infamous as the site of murder in the book and film MIDNIGHT IN THE GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL. Therefore, some of the chapters show interiors of historic houses which are not truly historic interiors as one might expect. But the good quality of printing, wide variety of subjects, and low price makes this a great gift for anyone interested in historic homes.
