DESIGNING A HOME WITH WOOD
by Heather E. Adams and Earl G. Adams, Jr.
Wood is an integral part of today’s home decor—from traditional to contemporary, floor to ceiling. This wide-ranging book is divided into four sections. Part One describes types of wood used in home design: Domestic Species, Exotic Species, Reclaimed and Antique Wood. Part Two defines and inspires the use of wood in the home: interiors (kitchen counter and cabinets, baths, floors—including patterns and inlays, living rooms, wet bars, libraries, office spaces, closets) and Architectural Details (ceilings, beams, wainscoting molding, walls, shelving, shutters). Part Three offers inspiration on creating style with wood from contemporary to country, American to Asian. Part Four, a special section on decorative finishes, shows how to achieve and decorate with painted, wood, lime wash, white wash, and unique stains and finishes.
Filled with practical information and lavishly illustrated, Designing a Home With Wood is the ultimate resource for those who want to surround themselves with its natural warmth and beauty.
