5.0 out of 5 stars Right on the money!, May 4, 2005
This review is from: Colonial Style: Creating Classic Interiors in Your Cape, Colonial, or Saltbox Home (Hardcover)
As the proud owner of an 1830 home in New England, I found this book to be very valuable as a resource. As a REALTOR who specializes in period homes, I plan to give copies of this book to my clients who want to preserve these valuable homes, and retain their original character, while enjoying all of todays' amenities. I believe that when you really peruse this volume, and read the detailed descriptions (not just appreciate the gorgeous photography) you will see that the author has effectively shown how to blend the best of the antique features with the demands of today's living. As evidenced on TV programs and in magazines, too many buyers make the mistake of taking a lovely period home, and putting in totally modern kitchens and baths, which create a jarring change in ambiance from one room to another, and also affect the historical accuracy of the structure. This author has featured homes where the homeowners have shown considerable sensitivity to the historic properties they are fortunate enough to own.
