William Yeoward is best known in America for his exquisite crystal, which was first shown in 1996 in London and was rewarded by British House and Garden magazine's "Best New Product" award. He quickly expanded his collections, becoming known as a premier designer of fabric, wallpapers, and rugs. I admire Yeoward's work, and I recently revisited his book William Yeoward at Home (Cico Books, 2010), which focuses on Yeoward's life in both the city—London—and the country—the Cotswolds. Take a look at some of his beautiful spaces.

  • I like his spaces. He's not afraid to use color or designs. His place looks like a house of all of his work but well-placed. Thanks for introducing him to us.
