Overview

Enjoy the ease and charm of country style, no matter where you live. With 750 tips from the editors at Country Living, this far-reaching, sumptuously photographed book is your guide to every aspect of the good life. Country decorating is all about feeling comfortable and relaxed. The characteristic furnishings are not only appealing, but also practical. Hand-painted tile back-splashes add bright color to a kitchen and stand up well when exposed to cooking steam, while louvered shutters look inviting whether they're closed to provide privacy or open to let sunlight in. Antiques are essential to this style for both their beauty and the history they evoke. Learn what to look for in the antiques that are popular with collectors. Detailing and size, for example, affect the value of whimsical chocolate molds. Be sure to consider the crispness of the colors and patterns on brown-and-white transferware.

Country crafts are an integral part of country decor. Try striking yetsimple projects like these to fill your home with warmth and personality: a colorful berry and vine wreath enlivens a front door, pretty pressed-leaf curtains bring the outdoors in, and a padded headboard dresses up a bed. The romance of country is epitomized in the garden, where you can get away from the everyday world in your own lush haven. Follow the tips for planting grass in and around your garden and you'll have a beautiful lawn to be proud of. Plant hydrangeas -- they stage a brilliant transformation from the sky blues, purples, and pinks into gorgeous autumnal hues after most flowering shrubs and perennials have gone for the season. Then take advantage of all your hard work by planning a late-summer garden party! One of the best features of country living is delicious, home-style cooking. Add to your recipe collection with such comfort foods as Cranberry Cornmeal Pancakes, Chutney-Glazed Pork Tenderloin, Americana Potato Salad, and Pear Maple Upside-Down Cake. Bonus: Close-up profiles of country icons, including Adirondack chairs, wedding ring quilts, watering cans, and more.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The hundreds of photographs in these two volumes offer a wealth of decorating and entertaining information. Country Living focuses on a country look for decorating every room of the home, including the garden. The text discusses items that typify country style, such as spongeware and Windsor chairs, and offers tips for collecting vintage items like quilts and caring for them. The book concludes with sections on simple crafts and recipes. House Beautiful supplies suggestions for decorating every room in the home with advice on walls, windows and treatments, floors, decor, lighting, furniture and accessories, storage, kid-friendly design, and entertaining. The styles depicted range from formal and traditional to sparse and modern. Both books present an enormous amount of practical decorating advice at a reasonable price and are highly recommended for public libraries. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Love this one!

    I saw this book at the store and wrote down a recipe from it when I was eating at the cafe at B&N. Thought about this book for a YEAR afterward. Finally bought it. Lovely photos, fun projects, great recipes. I really like this book. It just makes me happy. Love that you can See Inside most of it before you buy it online. Check it out first to see if you like the projects.
