Book Description: Take a tour of comfortable and charming farmhouses, presented Country Living style. Breathtaking photographs, accompanied by marvelously in-depth information, reveal the myriad ways these old-fashioned homes can fit beautifully into our modern-day lifestyles. While the exteriors of these houses all retain their strong lines and architectural origins, the interiors showcase a variety of sensibilities. See sophisticated farmhouses that smoothly combine the best of old and new; homes entirely decorated in flea-market finds; houses that serve as showcases for magnificent antique collections; and contemporary redefinitions with loft-like spaces and fashionable décor. Each profile goes room by room, carefully explaining the owner’s needs, desires, and design decisions: everything from wall treatments and light fixtures to shelving and appliances receives meticulous attention and discussion.
