This book captures the beauty and variety of Greek architectural decoration over three centuries. Glorious color photographs reveal exquisite murals and reliefs, painted and tiled interiors and exteriors, and a wealth of rich, vibrant color.

The close-up photographs -many previously unpublished- of facades, doors, windows, floors, and furnishings, offer a tour of richly decorated mansions and public buildings of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, in both neoclassical and vernacular styles, as well as of rural homes, churches, and other structures.

The informative text guides readers through the riches of Greek architectural decoration while the photographs offer a wealth of ideas for incorporating Greek style into today`s homes.
