Overview

At Home with Town & Country, the first-ever home book from the magazine that is the last word in defining the affluent lifestyle, opens the doors to 30 distinctive dwellings, providing rare glimpses of lives being lived in sleek urban showplaces and luxurious rural retreats alike-and offering advice and inspiration for creating stylish, soul-sustaining spaces of your own.
 These remarkable homes, lavishly photographed to the publication's singular standard, reflect the latest developments in residential architecture and design, including the “Invisible House,” Tadao Ando's avant-garde dwelling for the Benetton family in northern Italy and Antoine Predock's art-filled Dallas retreat for Deedie and Rusty Rose. But classic design also plays a part: here, too, are Chatsworth, the 400-year-old ancestral seat of the Dukes of Devonshire; Ralph and Ricky Lauren's 1920's-era family estate in Bedford, New York; and Spike and Tonya Lee's historic Manhattan town house. Each of the chapters concludes with a practical guide to a universal aspect of design, from planning the perfect cook's kitchen to building a second home.
This sumptuous book is sure to grace the coffee tables of the most fashionable homes.

    Beautiful photos!

    For years, I avoided reading Town and Country because of it's uber-rich lifestyle. However, age and time have tempered me, and it's a monthly delight to see how the more fortunate among us live. This book will not disappoint - it contains magnificent photography of real people's homes. It is a true feast for the eyes!

    More a HOMEOWNER'S LIFESTYLE book than a decor book

    Don't expect to garner a lot of interior design inspiration from this book so much as a peek into the lives of the homeowners, their lifestyles & interests. All 30 were previously portrayed in the magazine at some point over the last decade; this book simply delves into more detail, and often not necessarily about the home's interior as you would expect. Content varied from featured 'home' to featured 'home.' It's actually quite a lesson though and a very good read, just not so much an interior design/inspiration book. The photography isn't as lavish or extensive as you might expect from a $60 book or a lifestyle publication such as T&C (I don't read T&C myself since it's geared toward women, but I am familiar w/it & know that it's full of lush photography). Overall it is a good addition to your library or as a gift, especially at the online member price! :)
