Inside the Bungalow: America's Arts & Crafts Interior

Front Cover
Penguin Studio, 1997 - Architecture - 184 pages
There are 250 illustrations - almost all in color - of front doors, fireplaces, living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, and all sorts of details. Of special interest is the section devoted to the interiors of two of the "ultimate bungalows" - the Thorsen House in Berkeley, California - and the Gamble House in Pasadena, California - created by the Greene brothers, which epitomize the American Arts and Crafts style. Equally important is the "Before and After" section, in which thirty drab rooms have been totally transformed and now glow with the beauty of Craftsman design and furnishings.
