When I came across this book a few years back, it was like finding buried treasure. It’s one of those books that can be had for a song on Amazon but is worth so much more.
In the BNOTP Library: GREAT TRADITIONAL STYLE
Author: Shelley Stewart
Hardcover: 287 pages
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- Lots of beautiful houses featured from large historical homes to lovely cottages. Book is filled to the brim with gorgeous, rooms decorated in classic, timeless style. If you love traditional, never-goes-out-of-style design, you’ll love this book. This is a book I pull off the shelf over and over to enjoy. Psst: The cover doesn’t do it justice…so don’t judge this book by its cover.
- Book is divided into four sections: Stately Revival, Rooted in History, Collector’s Delight and Lighthearted Spirit. Large variety of home styles and designs featured including: Tudor, Cape Cod, Greek Revival, Colonial, Farmhouse, Lake house and many others.
- There are so many rooms inside this book that I would love to lift right out of the book in their entirety, and place directly inside my home, changing nothing. Lots of gorgeous antiques. I want the bed on page 185, the cat can stay, please. 🙂 I’ll take every single room featured under the chapter, “Masters of the Hunt.” Gorgeous bedroom on page 112…would love to know where that rug came from! Beautiful vignettes and ideas for displaying books and blue/white china on page 194-195. I love the French style bedroom on page 200. I could go on and on!
