Wood speaks on ‘The Unhappiest Unmarried Couple in England’

Published 5:46 pm Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Drummond House Co. Interiors will sponsor a presentation by English author Martin Wood’s at the Lanier Library on Saturday, Oct. 1 at 2 p.m.
Wood will give a talk and picture presentation called “The Unhappiest Unmarried Couple in England.” This talk is the story of the design partnership between Nancy Lancaster, the Virginia-born decorator who, together with the English prince of decorating, John Fowler, introduced English country style, bringing together comfort, beautiful colors, fabrics and everyday living even in grand English houses. This partnership would influence the next half-century of both English and American design.
Wood has lectured extensively in both the United States and Great Britain. He is here on a lecture tour in the South. He has written three books on decorating and two garden books.
Wood has a new book coming out later this year on the great American decorator, Sister Parrish.
Following the presentation there will be a tea and book signing.
