Domestic Interiors Database

This database is the outcome of an AHRC-funded survey of the representation of the domestic interior in Europe and North America since the Renaissance. It includes over 3000 entries, which form a carefully selected group of representations, more extensive in scope than anything previously attempted in the field. Sources are both textual and pictorial including: literature; diaries; correspondence; trade literature; advertisements; inventories; paintings; graphic satire; design books; popular magazines; dolls’ houses, photographs; computer stills and interior design drawings.
