The RusticHome
With the publication of The Rustic Home, Ralph Kylloe continues his artistic exploration of the rustic arts movement. Rustic living is undergoing a dramatic expansion. While some traditional homes offer a few hickory rockers on their front porches, many others are boasting the addition of an Adirondack room or handcrafted furniture pieces placed alongside traditional ones. At the extreme high end are extraordinary rustic homes filled with quintessential rustic furniture. This book contains examples of each style.
From small guest cabins to large homes that can sleep groups of forty, building a rustic home is a collaborative effort that starts with the vision of the homeowner. Add a talented architect and dozens of skilled engineers, carpenters, electricians, masons, painters, roofers, landscapers, interior designers and so on, and the result is nothing short of amazing. The Rustic Home explores distinguishing features created by these artisans, from flat-stacked stone walls that seem to grow out of the environment and recycled timbers that beg to be touched, to hand-hammered chandeliers and massive rock fireplaces casting warmth all around.
Stunning photography masterfully reflects the warmth and artistry that are the epitome of today's rustic evolution.
