Southwest homes have never been based on a single provincial style dominated by wagon wheels and wrought iron. They have always reflected an ever-evolving blend of architectural styles and designs that incorporate many diverse ways of life. Explosive growth in the Southwest has plowed fertile ground for architects and designers to experiment using the traditional palette of the region-stone, wood, terra cotta, iron, adobe-supplemented by influences from around the world. Smooth stainless steel is attractive when juxtaposed with textured flagstone or terra cotta, and leather furniture looks fantastic against adobe walls. This book offers a room-by-room tour of homes packed with innovation and tradition. Beginning at the front door, you are welcomed by art and elegant furniture. Kitchens are the heart of the home, and ideas abound to make the most functional room in the house also the most inviting. Chapters on bedrooms, bathrooms, entertainment rooms, offices, and playrooms complete the tour and perfectly demonstrate Southwest traditions in transition. Whether you are building, buying, remodeling, or just dreaming, The New Southwest Home is the ultimate idea book. Book jacket.
