Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

New York State's Hudson Valley is experiencing a rebirth of creativity and style, says San Francisco Chronicle style columnist Serrell, in this appreciation of the area's picturesque landscape and its place in American history. Heuer captures this renewed spirit in 240 color photos, while Serrell shares the personal history behind each of the featured homes. A 200-year-old Georgian manor house with Greek Revival columns and an 1826 lecture hall are examples of classic architectural style updated into elegant living space, where interior and exterior design maintain the buildings' heritage. The more modern Zen-inspired home of architect Steve Mensch, with glass walls, mahogany framing and granite flooring, all built adjacent to a waterfall, reflects the creative ways designers bring nature and the valley's scenic views directly into their homes. Serrell includes quotations from the homeowners themselves, allowing readers a personal look into the houses. Consistently engaging in both pictures and text, this volume is sure to remind readers that the majestic scenes and slower-paced lifestyle of the region are just as appealing as ever.

Format: Hardcover
"At Home in Hudson Valley" is an impressive gallery of the variety of architectural and interior design styles of the houses in the region. Modern, baroque, Federal, Shaker are just the few of the styles shown. But one feature typical for all of them is how harmonious they are with their surroundings. This book gives us the photos of not only the houses themselves, their exteriors and interiors, but also of the beautiful nature of Hudson Valley in all seasons.
Twenty houses all in all and a story behind each of them.

At Home in the Hudson Valley is a beautiful book packed with brilliant photographs. The houses in the book are distinctive and original, the pictures capture the spaces as well as the ideas and personalities of the people who made them. Allison Serrell and the photographer Meredith Heuer pull the vitality and creativity of the Hudson Valley through the pages of the book.
