In this follow-up to the popular Bungalow Details: Exterior, Jane Powell and Linda Svendsen go inside the bungalow, to identify and explain the wonderful details that make a bungalow authentic, from wood floor to beamed ceiling!

Arts & Crafts homes often feature an attention to detail and design that is lacking in all but the most expensive homes built today. Yet, in the iconic home of turn-of-the-century working-class folk, these details were ubiquitous-wood detailing, built-in furniture, art glass, beamed ceilings, inlaid floors, extensive tile work, and impressive fireplaces were featured in even the most modest bungalow, just as they were in the larger architect-designed counterparts.

Powell's expertise in the era and Svendsen's captivating photography combine to focus on the important details that make these simple homes as beautiful and easy to live in now as they were at the time they were built. From plate rails to paneling, closets to colonnades, lighting to laundry chutes, and everything in between, Bungalow Details: Interior is a practical and informative resource for restoring, re-creating, or simply appreciating the period details of an Arts & Crafts-era home.
