Used to be that "rustic" meant a dusty, dumpy cabin in the woods. No more! Rustic Revisited reveals today's rustic-contemporary design that celebrates the honesty of all-natural, local materials such as wood, twig, stone, and bark. Rustic structures often have the same finish on the exterior and the interior-for example, rough-hewn timber on both the outside and inside. The homes in Rustic Revisitedembrace the hand-crafted philosophy of rustic and show how to take that philosophy to new heights in a variety of styles, from the Adirondack camp to the Western lodge to the classic log cabin. Thirty unique homes, most planned by architects or interior designers, are showcased here, each lavishly photographed to allow readers exclusive access to interiors, exteriors, and noteworthy details in unusual rustic houses from New York to California, from Montana to Ontario, from North Carolina to Minnesota. These homes cover the full spectrum of rustic-renovations and new construction, traditional and cutting edge. A bonus chapter on decoration spotlights the craftspeople who are the creative forces of the movement.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Interior designer O'Leary (Adirondack Style) specializes in rustic style, which he defines as "structures built from local materials designed to be responsive to the prevailing environmental and weather conditions." Yet as seen here, the style can also border on the kitschy, with lots of wood paneling, stuffed animal heads, and pelts scattered throughout. Designed primarily by architect and newly constructed throughout the United States and Canada, the 30 examples shown here reflect the continuing interest in this style and the choices owners have made to accommodate 21st-century living. Interspersed throughout are sidebars that feature artisans who specialize in rustic d cor. For lengthier, more in-depth artisan listings, see Thea Marx's Contemporary Western Design.
