It used to be that "rustic" meant a dusty, dumpy cabin in the woods. No more! Rustic Revisited reveals today s rustic--contemporary design that celebrates the honesty of all-natural, local materials such as wood, twigs, stone and bark. Rustic structures often have the same finish on the exterior and the interior--for example, rough-hewn timber on the outside and rough-hewn timber on the inside. The projects in Rustic Revisited embrace the hand-crafted philosophy of rustic and show how to take that philosophy to new heights in a variety of styles, from the Adirondack camp to the Western lodge to the classic log cabin. Thirty unique homes, most planned by architects or interior designers, are showcased here, each lavishly photographed to allow readers exclusive access to interiors, exteriors and noteworthy details in unusual rustic houses from New York to California, from Montana to Ontario, from North Carolina to Minnesota. These spotlighted projects, plus photos of dozens of additional homes, cover the full spectrum of rustic--renovations and new construction, traditional and cutting edge. A bonus chapter on decoration spotlights the craftspeople who are the creative forces of the movement.
