Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Professionally designed dwellings in Texas, Maine, and the Hudson River valley of upstate New York are the subjects of these books, although some homes reflect the style of the locale better than others. The examples Carpenter (Spectacular Homes of Texas) has gathered of leading Texas architects come across more as of an advertisement than an analysis of their work. The 50-plus homes shown are predominantly large McMansions with lavish interiors that come in all types of styles-modern, French chateau, English country. However, none seems to reflect a particular Texas style, nor do they have any unique relationship to their setting. Serrell (Nest for Two) comes a bit closer to showing homes that reflect their locale. The 20 she chooses represent a diversity of styles, from a newly constructed Bauhaus townhouse to a renovated historic farmhouse. Color photographs and the text describe efforts to integrate these designs into their respective settings. The most successful of these books in terms of showing an area's vernacular style is by Maine architect Glass. Steering clear of the great historic Maine houses and those designed primarily for energy efficiency, he includes dwellings that have been photographed by architectural photographer Vanden Brink and have appeared in Down East magazine. Each reflects a simplicity of design that shows "the care with which they suit their settings and the environment." Purchase Hudson Valley and Maine for large interior design collections and for the libraries in these locales. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
