Perfect English Farmhouse celebrates the characteristic style and fascinating history of the classic farmhouse and shows how to turn your own home into a similarly welcoming retreat. Farmhouse is a word that conjures an array of appealing associations: fresh eggs and baby lambs, chunky wooden beams and stone floors, cream teas and harvest suppers; a place of welcome and plenty. With their generous kitchens and meandering layout, the architectural informality of the farmhouse suits modern lifestyles. In Perfect English Farmhouse, via a series of case studies, Ros Byam Shaw explores both traditional and contemporary farmhouse style. The book is divided into chapters according to style: Organic, Traditional, Fresh, No Frills, and Funky, and at the end of each chapter a spread highlights the key elements of that particular decorative look. At the back of the book, there is also a comprehensive listing of UK and US sources to help readers create their very own take on perfect farmhouse style.

The English style in interior design is admired and imitated the world over. The English style in interior design is admired and imitated the world over. At its grandest it is a stately home furnished with antiques, but the houses featured in this book are country cottages, farmhouses, townhouses, and apartments. What links them is as much an attitude as a look. The English style of decoration is practical and informal, designed around the inhabitants of the rooms and their lifestyles rather than to awe or impress. These houses are lived in and loved, with interiors that are comfortable, relaxed and not afraid to be pretty. All are perfect in their own way, and all as endearingly English as saying sorry when someone treads on your foot. The book’s chapters—Plain English, English Eccentric, English Rose, English Country House and Classic English—reflect the many and varied facets of English style, and each section ends with pages devoted to suggestions and ideas for furnishing a house in all these versions of English style. At the back of the book, there is also a comprehensive listing of suppliers to help readers create their very own take on perfect English style.

Continuing her exploration of English interiors, Ros Byam Shaw visits 14 distinctive townhouses full of charm, character and style. In Perfect English Townhouse, Ros Byam Shaw examines the timeless English style of decoration in a variety of Georgian, Victorian and contemporary townhouses. Architecturally, these tall, narrow properties present challenges. How do you make the best of a basement kitchen with a low ceiling and limited light? Or allocate space when you live on five floors? And how do you maximize any precious outdoor space? Perfect English Townhouse features case studies of such homes, not only in London but also in the provincial towns and cities of England. Some feel like little pockets of countryside surrounded by pavements, others have a more sophisticated, metropolitan allure; some are endearingly eccentric, others more classical. All the interiors featured are inspiring, and reflect the personalities of the people who inhabit them. These are the kinds of space that most of us are familiar with, and that many of us occupy. What is unusual is how cleverly and creatively these examples have been decorated and designed.

English Eccentric celebrates that interplay, visiting the homes of artists and designers, a director of wildlife documentaries, a hairdresser, a politician, and a ringmaster—people with a strong sense of the visual and the courage and flair to be original. Ros Byam Shaw looks at 14 different homes in a wide variety of styles, from a tiny cottage packed with circus memorabilia, to an elegant country house full of stuffed animals. None of the interiors featured are at the extreme end of eccentricity but all of them provide a multiplicity of inspiring ideas, whether through their vibrant mix of color and pattern, their imaginative use of space, their witty juxtapositions of old, new, upcycled and homemade, or their novel and eye-catching ideas for display. English Eccentric is a book about interiors that will amuse and inspire in equal measure, and about people whose creativity, rather than wealth, informs their take on interior design.

Brad Morris, an ex-army officer, met his future wife, Rachel Duncan, at an Australian army specialist training faculty. Both held black belts in karate and were experts in weaponry and marksmanship. They soon became friends, started dating, and fell in love. Rachel, finding army life too restricting, left the army and joined the Australian Federal Police force. Brad, to be closer to Rachel, resigned from the army and joined the AFP. Two months after his AFP appointment, they were married. The next year, Rachel gave birth to a daughter, whom they named Mia. Due to medical reasons, Rachel was denied any future children, and their consolidated family of three was bonded on togetherness and love. When Mia was three years old, they hired a permanent babysitter, and Rachel went back to work as a specialist trainer with the AFP. Brad Morris, as a specialist agent of the AFP, was sent to overseas countries for several monthly training sessions to study new law enforcement techniques. Included in one his previous overseas assignments was being an undercover agent for the British police in Hong Kong. Following that assignment, he had further training at Scotland Yard in London. Because of his achievements, he was sent on a specialized training course to study at the American FBI headquarters in Washington DC. For the three months duration of the Washington training course, he was granted a special request that allowed him to be accompanied by his wife, Rachel, and daughter, Mia. Due to his previous experience with the Hong Kong underworld, the FBI signed him on as one of their undercover agents in Hong Kong, after approval from the head of AFP, to take part in a secret mission investigating the suspicious deaths of American tourists that occurred in British-controlled Hong Kong. The FBI considered that Brad, with his prior knowledge of the two most prominent crime lords operating in Hong Kong, namely Jimmy Lee and Sammy Lui, would be valuable. Both these gang lords were cunning, ruthless, and capable adversaries who would wantonly kill to control their own individual criminal kingdoms. His mission was to take place in March 1997, a few months prior to the British handing back the colony of Hong Kong to the Republic of China. Due to the limited amount of time remaining before the Chinese took over the control of the colony, the British administration and police force, prior to the hand over date, had purposely cut back their law enforcement activities. With the lack of total police involvement, this situation left the criminal element unlimited opportunities to commit major crimes. Terry Long, the head of Hong Kongs MI5 division, was virtually playing a lone hand in controlling the spiraling crime wave. To initiate their involvement, the FBI had set up undercover headquarters at an export import company in Hong Kong. Brad would join three other FBI agents, Nancy Ho, Bobby Reed, and Tony Pallino, at the export import company, operating under the leadership of a senior FBI agent named Bill Johns together with two Republic of China agents, Chen Zhang and Delun Huang, who both agreed, by whatever means it took, to ensure that all Hong Kong criminal elements were either behind bars or nonfunctional when the handover to the Republic of China was official. Each day, in their quest to bring the ruthless crime lords to justice, Brads family and his fellow agents lives were constantly under threat. This story takes you on the Morris familys journey from Hong Kong in 1997 up to the present time.
