Attractively designed and produced in glorious color by the editors of Country Living (Country Chic: Country Style for Modern Living), this latest offering is aimed at the many home owners who want to update and renovate their homes. The book is logically divided into four chapters to cover each main area of a house. Starting with the "Living Areas," moving through "The Kitchen," "The Bathroom" and concluding with "House Exteriors," the editors illustrate problems and their solutions through "Insider's Advice," sound bites clearly laid out and paired with relevant photographs. Specific styles are addressed, from the family farmhouse to the New England Saltbox, and suggestions and interpretations are given to achieve certain looks, often with an eye to cost. For renovators and those buying with a thought to a home's potential, the appendix gives further practical advice on "Inspecting an Old House" and "Architects and Contractors." Topped off with several pages of resources, including everything from associations to suppliers of carpet and moldings, this volume is itself a valuable resource for those considering renovating-or even redecorating-their homes.
