1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Vicki long Long's Antiques on April 6, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Sherrill Canet's book shares the historical architecture of Long Island Sound. Her home, built in 1919, became her design laboratory. While keeping with her traditional style of decorating, Sherrill compliments the old-fashioned architecture of her house by adding creative modern touches. She shows us the phases that each room goes through over the years as Sherrill puts her own special stamp on the house.

Her studies help her identify the essentials for creating an old world atmosphere--from Chippendale to baroque to gothic style. All of these elements help create a home full of charm and are the inspiration for Canet's own design of furniture for Stark. She shows us how to respect the elegance of the past while embracing the future.
