"Everything's grand" says decorator extraordinaire, Carleton Varney. After over forty years in the interior design business, Varney opens his archive and brings together his favourite largescale luxury decorating projects, including an Irish country manor, a sixteenth-century castle, a colonial mansion, a Southern plantation, along with two of his best-loved resorts - the Greenbrier in West Virginia and the "Queen of the Great Lakes", Michigan's Grand Hotel. On these pages, he also showcases his most recent private residential project - a 6000 square foot Mediterranean-style home, near the Rio Grande. In Decorating in the Grand Manor, Varney focuses our attention on all the elements of elegant design, from crystal chandeliers to magnificent architectural details and dispenses his time-honoured advice on how to achieve the look at home.
