Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Many of us hanker after the relaxing, easy simplicity of country life, yet we aren't sure how to adapt this look to suit a modern home. That's where "Contemporary Country" comes in. It's about rekindling our love of the rustic idyll, but giving it a new twist. It's about taking the essence of country style - a way of living that is gentle, natural and grounded - and giving it a contemporary makeover. You don't have to live in the country to appreciate the lifestyle - its colours, textures and details look just as at home in urban spaces. In "Contemporary Country", Emily Chalmers and Ali Hanan begin by looking at the elements that make up the style. They explore the use of natural materials and the way in which key structural features such as beams or staircases can be exposed so that living spaces flow naturally together. They look at furniture - painted or left with a natural finish - lighting, textiles, flooring and colour. The book then examines key areas of the home, from kitchens to sleeping spaces, and shows you how the look works with the help of over 200 inspiring photographs. It concludes with an indispensable suppliers' directory. *Traditional country style is given a contemporary makeover. *Vibrant photography by Debi Treloar
