Meredith Books, Dec 1, 1995 - Architecture - 192 pages
Brought to you by Country Home magazine, America's foremost authority on country style, this book reveals the pleasures of American country through chapters on every room in the house. In sections on living areas, dining rooms, bedrooms, baths, and kitchens, the comforts of country appear in all of the details, large and small, from the background color of a wall to the accessories that accent a corner table or a kitchen counter.
Chapters on porches and gardens take you outside to discover the many ways in which country style can be reflected around your house, and chapters on collectibles and Christmas illustrate the impact of artful arrangements and once-a-year traditions. Special pages in the book explore such extras as the colors of country, quilt collecting, and decorating with flowers.
In this inspirational book, you'll find the many faces of country, from colonial revival to breezy cottage style. Collectively, the lavish photographs illustrate the universal appeal of country and the many ways in which it can be expressed, from the subtle beauty of a restored country house to the desert colors of a New Mexico bungalow.
