Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Hunter, a writer/stylist who specializes in design, provides a look at contemporary Southwest style, which goes beyond the pastel Native American design previously popular to include a mixture of Spanish, Mexican, and cowboy influences, and shows how to the look has been incorporated into home decor. First an overview is given of the region and the traditional architectural styles and details that comprise the Southwest style. Then homes in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah are depicted that exemplify each region's style from mountain to desert. Recommended for large interior design collections and where there is an interest. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
From adobe casitas to log cabins and strawbale homes, Hunter (writer/photostylist) and photographer Peter Vitale include honest, ingenious, and easily adaptable ideas that illustrate the "quality not quantity" philosophy at the heart of the Southwest spirit. About 200 color photographs introduce architectural styles from Territorial to Santa Fe, as well as design details from hammered ironwork to adobe fireplaces. Also includes decorating tips and lessons, historical notes, and shopping advice. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
From The Critics
Modern Southwest style blends Native American and Spanish cultures as Linda Hunter's Southwest Style artfully displays the architectural styles of the region, blending over two hundred fine color photos with details on accents and decorating style. An excellent display of architectural options in this design.
