Item description for Southwest Style : A Home-Lover's Guide to Architecture and Design by Linda Mason Hunter...

Bring the unique style of the Southwest into your home with this vivid source book. Containing more than 200 stunning photographs. Southwest Style is filled with honest, ingenious, and easily adaptable ideas that illustrate the "quality not quantity" philosophy that is at the heart of the Southwest spirit.

From adobe casitas to log cabins to strawbale homes, Southwestern architecture is as diverse as its people and terrain. Interior decorations spring from the earth -- delicate handmade pottery, chip-carved chairs, colorful rugs and blankets, and tightly woven baskets -- encouraging readers to express their own personal style at home. Decorating tips and lessons, historical notes, and shopping advice complete this inspirational reference for building a new home, refurbishing an older house, decorating an apartment, or just dreaming.

Reviews - What do customers think about Southwest Style : A Home-Lover's Guide to Architecture and Design?

MORE please!  Apr 8, 2003
Living in Ontario, Canada and designing an adobe like home is difficult and we need lots of inspirational books. This one is highly valued in our home during this design period and we recommend this book for anyone in our circumstances. We found it inspirational and useful to our architect who has little exposure to the southwestern style. But...we need more books just like this and find it difficult to buy a book on your site without you providing additional information about the book...for exmample...peeks inside at some of the photographs. That would be so useful. But don't hesitate to order this one; it is well worth the investment.
I'd give it a C minus  Nov 13, 2001
Given my passion for the southwest, I expected to love this book, but I didn't. Certainly I found the photos lovely, but somehow the overall package does not convey the excitement, spirituality, and drama of the region. In other words, the book is a little flat. And what I expected to be a good read turned out to be more of an encyclopedia style rundown of facts (in other words, boring). The book comes off as a cold report on what is in fact a fabulously exciting and inspiring region.
Disappointing  Oct 9, 2001
The pictures are pretty but the book is a boring read.
southwest style  Aug 24, 2001
Extremely beautiful and informative. Finally a substantive look at the style of the southwest.
Southwest Style: A Home-Lover's Guide to Architecture and De  Jul 13, 2001
I do NOT find this book limiting; when searching for decorating style of the SW; there is so FEW out there, it is refreshing to find one that covers such a broad area of the SW. I LOVE THIS book...Normal decorating books have so LITTLE of this area and for those of us who LOVE IT, the book is wonderful. REFRESHING and NOT CUTESY! At present I live in the Midwest of America and it is so limiting to NEW ideas so often. Our local library had this book, and I was searching to see how many others were out there, not many... so I MAY end having to OWN this book.

Thank you for carrying this as well as several others pertaining to this area of the USA.
