There's a reason so many old homes are able to maintain their appeal and desirability over decades and even centuries: the reliance of the original builders on classic principles of design. Author Tim Tanner, a staunch advocate that something well designed will stand the test of time, has coupled basic design principles with a wealth of specific examples using wonderful old objects and materials, illuminating effective design ideas for bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms, pantries, and other spaces. The author and his wife, Johnna, restored their first nineteenth-century home in 1988, and have been involved in restoration and reproduction projects using reclaimed materials ever since. This book is meant to be an idea book for designing beautiful interiors that embody the essence of Early American country style--designs that above all include a sense of warmth, comfort, and familiarity. Tim Tanner is an artist, author, educator, builder, and industrial and graphic designer whose work appears in numerous venues--from national bestselling books to award-winning furniture and homes. An avid historian since childhood, he is a founding member of the American Longrifle Association and a member of the American Mountain Men. Tim's writings have appeared in various publications, including the Rocky Mountain Fur Trade Journal and Muzzleloader Magazine. He is on the art faculty at Brigham Young University, Idaho, and oversees Web design for BYU-I online courses. A native of Utah, he and his family currently reside in Parker, Idaho, where they are in the process of restoring another gem of a home, originally built in 1890.
