Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

- Final entries in Pomegranate's Bungalow Basics series, which includes "Fireplaces, Bedrooms, Living Rooms, Dining Rooms, Kitchens, and Bathrooms.- Duchscherer and Keister are widely known among bungalow aficionados for their highly successful series of coffee-table books, published by Penguin Putnam: "The Bungalow, Inside the Bungalow, and Outside the Bungalow.- Each book includes a brief overview of bungalow architecture and the Arts and Crafts movement.

Synopsis:

Set almost invariably in a lush garden, the early-twentieth-century bungalow allowed countless suburbanites to get back to nature without leaving the cozy confines of their own property. The bungalow front porch epitomized the indoor-outdoor lifestyle associated with this popular new form of housing. Furnished as an extension of the adjoining living room, it offered a comfortable spot from which to enjoy unimpeded views of the surrounding landscape. Because the front porch typically defined a home's street presenceproviding what realtors refer to as curb appealit also represented one of the most distinctive features of bungalow architecture.
