Overview

Every page is full of charm: Country Living and designer Christina Strutt showcase décor that’s classic, lovely, and irresistible.

Vintage style is faded rose prints, crisp antique linens, and the cozy elegance of country living. Popular and pretty, it’s a look that can be captured with the help of this definitive guide. Christina Strutt, owner of the renowned design firm, Cabbages & Roses, takes a tour of city and country homes to showcase, with beautiful photographs, hundreds of style ideas. Handmade floral fabric prints, mismatched country crocks, heirloom pieces, and thrift-store finds decorate the vintage kitchen, while living rooms are cozy with patchwork cushions, antique silks, and oversize family sofas. The room-by-room tour leads to the vintage bedrooms, where billowing muslin drapes, flower prints, and embroidered bed linens create a tranquil retreat. The look is beautiful and timeless—and with this book, easy to achieve.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Multitudinous country decorating ideas are captured in these two books from Country Living magazine. Former House Beautiful editor Butcher takes nature as inspiration for her color combinations, with themes such as field and woodland or slate and stone. Color photographs of interiors are accompanied by sidebars full of tips on the use of color, light, texture, and fabric in ways that mirror the outdoors. Strutt, owner of the fabric firm Cabbages & Roses, provides decorating tips for using vintage items-glass, ceramics, furniture, and particularly textiles-throughout the house. Butcher's book is recommended for any size public library, as its advice on the use of color will be helpful to amateurs; purchase Strutt's book where patrons can't get enough of vintage and country decor.
