If there was ever a showcase for the American home, it's Pasadena. Internationally famed for its Arts & Crafts bungalows, Pasadena is where frozen Americans journeyed to claim their California dream of sunny days, citrus trees, and leafy streets lined with a diverse array of artfully designed and carefully built homes: Queen Anne Victorians, hillside cabins, Craftsman bungalows, Spanish haciendas, colonial revivals, Mediterranean villas, iconic midcentury moderns, sleek contemporary masterworks, modest rental cottages and a new wave of mixed-use urban architecture. Over the last 130 years, some of the nation's finest architects have filled neighborhoods with homes and landscapes of timeless beauty. At Home Pasadena explores the public and private spaces in the homes and gardens of Pasadena and her architecturally rich neighbors. Organized by the activities of daily life cooking, retreating, playing, gardening each chapter is filled with vivid color photographs and and energetic text that takes readers in the front door, out the back door, and over to the rose garden in more than fifty homes.
