In her engaging style, Linda Applewhite teaches you to transform your home from run-of-the-mill to something personal, beautiful, and architecturally striking. How? Never underestimate the potential of rooms with good bones. What are "good bones"? Simply put, they're the basic structural and architectural elements that make up a home-from windows and doors to columns, arches, niches, railings, beams, lintels, fireplaces, mantels, and more.
Whether you are building from scratch, remodeling an existing home, or just giving a specific room a face-lift, Linda teaches you fairly simple, attainable things you can do to actually change a home's structure to enhance its beauty and uniqueness and to give your space an entirely different feel. Whether you are adding a column or pillar to define a space, installing unusual cabinetry to give structure, placing moldings for extra elegance, or installing French doors to connect a room to a garden, Linda Applewhite's Architectural Interiors gives you the ideas, inspiration, knowledge, and sources you need.
The architectural elements of a home are critical, and no matter your style or price range, with a designer's eye you can change or add details to make your home the place you've always dreamed of.
