Arrowsmith, Henry William / The house decorator and painter's guide; containing a series of designs for decorating apartments, suited to the various styles of architecture
Plate XXVII ["Louis Quinze style"]-Plate XXVIII ["style of Francois Premier"], pp. 56-Plate XXVIII ff.
56 Plate XXVII. In this plate we have given a design for a ceiling well adapted for a room decorated in the Louis Quinze style, such as that represented in Plate XVII. This will be found an elegant decoration to a drawing-room of small dimen- sions. In colour it must have a correspondence with the walls, and would have a chaste and beautiful appearance if picked out in tints and gold. Plate XXVIII. Is a design for a room in the style of Francois Premier, a mode of decora- tion which is in the present day exceedingly fashionable. The elegant ornaments of this style are manufactured in Paris, and a great variety of patterns may be obtained. They are commonly finished in blue and 'silver, shaded with morone; and nothing can surpass the elegant and even sump- tuous appearance of these decorations, from the union of a rich colouring and a chaste relief.
