The Cottage Book: Living Simple and Easy

The Cottage Book: Living Simple and Easy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Simplicity, comfort, and intimacy define the cottage--and they are the hottest ideas in domestic design today. The personal, easy-living style of the cottage has formed a compelling counter-trend to the "bigger is better" school of modern life. Today, quality of place is more important than quantity of space, and no home style demonstrates that value more appealingly than the cottage. Presenting charming retreats perched on rocky coasts, hidden in leafy woods, and nestled on rolling farmland, The Cottage Book explores the roots of this classic and beloved style. Century-old examples of classic getaways along with delightful modern variations are presented in richly detailed, atmospheric photographs made expressly for this book. In this gorgeous celebration of the cottage tradition, artist, designer, and cottage expert Carol Bass showcases a group of classic early cottages, all still in happy and active use, leads us through a collection of updated and new cottages, and delineates those stylistic elements that define cottage life. Primary residence or weekend haven, The Cottage Book inspires an irresistible fantasy of a home of our own.

Synopsis:

No residential style reflects the small-is-beautiful trend better than the cottage home. Quaint, personal, modest, and simple, there's not a pretentious rafter in its roof. "The Cottage Book" presents a gorgeous celebration of this popular style. Artist, designer, and cottage expert Carol Bass showcases a number of classic early cottages, all still in happy and active use.175 color photos.
