Twenty years of Country Living knowledge, and a glimpse into real renovations, shows home decorators how to complete their own projects, and redo their own houses, in a style they’ll cherish for years to come.
Drawing on more than two decades of architectural documentary, Country Living has created this visually dazzling guide offering practical, elegant ideas for home decoration projects both large and small. Every residence shown is real, and the profiles of actual renovations range from a converted barn to a log cabin to an updated Greek Revival Home. Insider’s Advice tip boxes feature everything from sprucing up aging wood floors to reglazing vintage pedestal sinks.
