About the Author

Cheryl Hackett first became intrigued by the Shingle Style when she lived in the historic William Watts Sherman House while enrolled at Salve Regina University in Newport. Since graduation, she has worked as a freelance editor, writer and stylist for nearly two decades. Her articles about architecture, interior design and lifestyles have appeared in many national magazines including La Vie Claire, Victorian Homes, Romantic Homes, Classic American Homes and Coastal Living. Cheryl earned a B.A. and a M.A. from Salve Regina University. She returned to the university eight years ago as an adjunct professor, where her courses include Feature Article Writing, Editing for Publication and Writing for Public Relations. Cheryl was also selected to speak at the American Literature Association's national conferences held in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2001 and 2003. Her topics focused on Gilded Age architecture and interior design. Kindra Clineff travels far and wide specializing in location photography for commercial and editorial clients. She regularly produces feature assignments for national magazines in the US, and her images have appeared in numerous books and calendars. When not chasing light, Kindra enjoys cultivating heirloom vegetables and attempts to tame the perennial garden of her seventeenth century home in Massachusetts. You can view more of her work at: Richard Guy Wilson holds the Commonwealth Professor's Chair in Architecture at the University of Virginia, where he is also Chair of the Department of Architectural History.

He is the author or joint author of 14 books that deal with American and modern architecture.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Newport Shingle Style presents some exciting new houses in the tradition of the style, Houses of the 21st century which are especially stunning and creative and which I found compelling are Beavertail and Blackwatch. Half the book covers houses from 18th to early 20th century. Favorite Stanford White houses or interiors (Watts-Sherman, Isaac Bell and Tilton House) are nicely photographed but the author's descriptions of his astonishing creative use of interior materials is very vague. For well-written coverage of these interiors, one must read Samuel White's books on Stanford White. In the 21st century section there is one minor but glaring error: the miss-spelling of the tile and ceramic company Pewabic as "Pewbic." It was fun to read that the architect had salvaged the Pewabic tiles as a child and kept them all these years to be used in a new home.
