Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0609604104, Hardcover)Over the last decade, there's been a resurgence of interest in restoring period homes in keeping with their original character. As a result, it's now easier than ever for period homeowners to acquire the right antique period pieces or buy high-quality reproductions for their home. But what are the right pieces for your particular home? Judith Miller's book More Period Details aims to help homeowners understand which details match their home's original style.
The book spans architectural and decorative styles from Medieval to Edwardian, covering such popular periods as Georgian, Victorian, and Arts and Crafts. Miller explains the inspiration, history, and materials behind each look, using rich, clear color photographs to illustrate. There are photos of entire rooms decorated in each style, as well as photos of the detail work familiar to each period, to give readers an understanding of each distinctive look. Also covered in depth are each period's home exterior details, doors, windows, floors, fireplaces, kitchen and bath fixtures, lighting, and more. A helpful directory at the end of the book lists manufacturers and artisans who can help restore or reproduce the pieces featured in the book.
More Period Details is an authoritative, practical reference for homeowners wanting to refurbish and decorate their homes in keeping with its original look. Even those who don't own a period home may be inspired to incorporate some of the gorgeous details shown--such as wooden crown moldings, cast-iron bathtubs, and marble flooring--into their homes.--Kris Law
