The elegant dwellings featured in Elle Decor Country Homes are not decorated with stenciled geese and gingham slipcovers; rather, they illustrate a more sophisticated type of country, from rustic traditional to romantic European as well as striking contemporary interpretations of the farmhouse. Among the homes featured are those belonging to Calvin Klein, Richard Meier, John Frieda, and Charlie Rose. Exploring six distinct variations - Mediterranean, cottage, grand style, contemporary, family home, and cabin - the book offers informative commentary and 250 beautiful color photos that trace the evolution of each style, and provides specific suggestions for creating a particular look.
