Tudor Styleby Lee Goff, Paul Rocheleau (Photographer)
The Tudor house has attracted America homeowners for more than a century. Its basic elements-the steep-gabled roofs, mullioned windows made of leaded glass, and half-timbering-are instantly recognizable. This book showcases the wide variety of Tudor homes and provides interior design inspiration for Tudor homeowners. Surprisingly, given the extreme popularity of Tudor homes in the United States, no other book exists on this topic.
Photographer Paul Rocheleau has traveled across the United States capturing the unique Tudor styles each region offers. The Tudors presented range from modest homes to grand estates, making this a perfectly accessible book. Photographs of streetscapes that feature Tudors in line with other Tudor homes or neighboring more modern styles are also included. In addition, interior photographs accompany text by preservationist Lee Goff.
Tudor Style will delight architecture enthusiasts who have been long waiting for a book on this favorite architectural style and offers a rich array of furnishing and decorative inspiration for homeowners.
