The Catskills, always a favorite retreat for New Yorkers, is undergoing renewed interest as a weekend vacation destination. This is as a result of its proximity to the city and its affordability.
Catskills Country Style is the first book of its kind on the Catskills. Current owners of homes there are stylish innovators, creating a country aesthetic with a new twist, recycling ideas as well as furniture with an individualistic philosophy that showcases an eclectic mix of flea market, yard sale, antique and handmade furniture, sometimes peppered with the latest International high-design and avant-garde furnishings.
The book includes such intriguing historic houses as Olana (Frederic Church's country estate of 1860) and Penroyal Cottage, and the artists' colony Byrdcliff (America's first Arts and Crafts community), which are the forerunners of the retreats of many current artists, bohemians, designers, and stylists.
