Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 030723651X, Hardcover)

Though times have changed, the charm and grace of Southern style endures. It’s a design tradition that values gentility and gracious living above conspicuous consumption; history and mystery above the cutting edge; and hospitality above all else. Today’s Southern homes reflect a sense of style that remains in touch with the past as it embraces the present.
In this affectionate portrait of Southern homes, Frances Schultz and Paula S. Wallace lead a tour of more than twenty of the South’s proudest houses and most remarkable modern domiciles, proving that the legendary graciousness of the Southern home lives on in all forms–from seaside cottages to some truly over-the-top domains. Despite the differences among these diverse homes, the most timeless aspects of Southern style abound, including:
• Using wrought iron for decorative elements
both inside and outside the home
•Incorporating the porch as an essential room
of the house
• Collecting antique silver to complement the
contemporary table

Magnificent full-color photographs of each house show everything from the grand and elegant to the quaint and quirky, making this unique book a visual treat for anyone enchanted by the eternal grace of the American South.
