From adobe casitas to log cabins to strawbale homes, this book includes honest, ingenious and easily adaptable ideas that illustrate the "quality not quantity" philosophy at the heart of the Southwest spirit. Interior decorations spring from the earth -- delicate handmade pottery, chip-carved chairs, colorful rugs and blankets, and tightly woven baskets -- encouraging personal expression and timeless design.
Containing over 200 stunning color photographs, this book introduces architectural styles from Territorial to Santa Fe, as well as accompanying design details from hammered ironwork to adobe fireplaces. Soulful features such as natural light and handmade accents lend a sacred dimension to any living space. Complete with decorating tips and lessons, historical notes, and shopping advice, this vivid source book will inspire you to incorporate some of these ideas in your own environment, no matter where you live.
