Retailer and style expert Osofsky (founder, Hammertown Barn) and author Adams (The Gardener's Gripe Book) visit 18 houses located in the Northeastern United States, including their own, that exemplify the casual, relaxed decorating approach fostered in Osofsky's lifestyle stores. Most of the homeowners are writers, artists, designers, or other creative professionals and have used their talents to design interiors that reflect their tastes and lifestyles. More than 200 color photographs depict newly constructed, modern dwellings and restored or remodeled older homes, providing a refreshing look at the use of country style. VERDICT The popularity of country style, with its eclectic mix of furnishings and decorative accessories, shows no sign of waning, and this volume will give both amateurs and professionals additional inspiration.
