Overview

Arts and Crafts is more than a decorating style. It is a philosophy that embraced the use of natural materials and effects, and hearkened back to the fine workmanship of goods produced under the medieval guild system. As a design style, Arts and Crafts has remained popular since its advent in the late 1800s, and is as beautifully fitting in today's homes as it was at the turn of the century. Consider the effect of regional materials on the architecture of the Arts and Crafts period -- an influence that resulted in a range of vernacular styles from prairie to log cabin to Spanish mission. Soften the angularity of mission- and Stickley-style furniture by combining it with gently rounded wicker and twig pieces. Imbue a room with subtle grace by adding accessories with naturalistic motifs, such as pottery incised with reeds and cattails or pillows appliqued with stylized floral designs. Create the soft, natural-looking lighting of the era with lamps of copper, wood, or pottery shaded by mica, parchment, or stained glass. Appreciate the role that built-ins play in the Arts and Crafts-style house, including window seats, bookcases, inglenooks, and sideboards.

For all those who wish to bring the warmth and fine workmanship of Arts & Crafts-style pieces into their own homes, this luxuriously photographed volume abounds with insightful advice.
