Only a small sampling of The Pretty and Proper Living Room has been made available to be viewed online. Currently you may view the Table of Contents, the Foreword, and the Introduction.
The Table of Contents reveals that The Pretty and Proper Living Room is organized into three sections: "Aristocratic Accessories", "Old Guard Furniture and Rugs", and "Stately Lighting and Wall Art". Within these three sections are 11 chapters describing the items found in classic old-school living rooms.
The Foreword is written by Michael E. Scully. Mr. Scully is the president of Scully and Scully, New York, a splendid store that sells many of the lovely items featured in The Pretty and Proper Living Room.
Holly Holden's Introduction describes how The Pretty and Proper Living Room evolved from a short list of notes she prepared for her daughter, Alexandra, into its present form.
