Ringwood. u/lined. Moderate amount of small writing, well illustrated with pictures. Reminds me of 'Doing up old junk'. Takes you through ea. room in the house. Ea. room finishes w/ summary - prob. get away w/ reading just this. Elements sec. looks at individual bits, eg, furniture, lighting, textiles, ceramics, etc. List of suppliers at back.
