‘Room For Enjoyment’, is an enjoyable, fast-paced read.
Set in 1976, it focuses on the daily workings of a New York City interior design office. Among other projects discussed, Eaton Downing is asked to design a palatial estate for Moses Abrams, a macho fifty-four year old businessman for his twenty-eight year old chorus girl bride, Dolly.
The home will be called the ‘Doll’s House’ and has to include eight bedrooms all executed in various period styles, and must be completed for an important Bastille Day party Moses plans to give for three hundred of his closest friends.
Problems arise and Eaton worries if he will have time to complete by the assigned date.
A love story involves Eaton and a couture friend, Leigh Beltor, who designs the period gowns Dolly will wear in the rooms.
A surprise ending and a glossary of unfamiliar design term’s makes it a perfect reading for anyone interested in interior decoration.
