Synopses & Reviews
The rugged beauty of the Pacific Coast has spawned a style that is informal yet modern, organic yet refined. Northwest Style, now in paperback, brings to light the spirit and diversity of this region's architecture and decor, as demonstrated in dozens of distinctive homes in Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. Northwest style is notable for its extraordinary blend of influences, including modernism and Japanese architecture. While the styles vary, a sensitivity to the environment and a desire to accentuate the natural beauty of the region lie at the heart of almost every design. Color photographs celebrate each structure's unique features, highlight architectural and decorative details, and show the surrounding landscape. Full of inspiring ideas, "Northwest Style belongs in the must-have category" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer).
