Dutch Colonial Homes in America
This lavishly-illustrated volume provides an unprecedented look at twenty-eight houses (plus eleven barns and other structures) built in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries by Dutch colonists in the north-eastern United States, primarily in upstate New York and along the Hudson River Valley, on Long Island and Staten Island, and in New Jersey. An authoritative work-- written by eminent experts in the field-- Dutch Colonial Homes in America explores the homes in their broader social context by focusing on the historical and religious forces of the times. This book is the first to investigate the meaning of the home and its aesthetics for the Dutch in America, and also the first to look at these homes as a form of art and craft and, importantly, the influence this form and these people had on the shape of the American house to come.

Early American Country Homes: A Return to Simpler Living
Twenty Restored or renovated Early American country homes feature the myriad of different styles from around the country. The homes exude a simplicity that is somewhat rustic and somewhat country in an understated way. Tim Tanner also features some small cabins that have been made livable for today as well as decorating ideas and outbuildings. Early American Country Homes is an inspiration and resource for those who are interested in building, re-creating, restoring, or just enjoying a return to simpler styling in home design.

The Country Home (American Country)
Whether you are a newcomer to the country look or a long-time admirer, you can use this book
as inspiration for decorating--or simply accessorizing--your own home. You will find rooms that
display an effective mix of fine antiques and contemporary pieces, and those that are furnished with period reproductions. There are rooms that are intentionally spare, designed to display one or two valuable heirlooms, and rooms that overflow with flea-market finds, decoys, and quilts. Still others--decorated with lace, bric-a-brac, and richly upholstered furniture--embrace the flowery romanticism of the Victorian era.

Early American Country Interiors
An idea book for designing beautiful interiors that embody the essence of early American country style. As an advocate that something well designed will stand the test of time, author Tim Tanner has coupled basic design principles with a wealth of examples using wonderful old objects and materials, illuminating effective design ideas for bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms, pantries, and other spaces.

American Farmhouses: Country Style and Design
These simple homes speak to us of history and values, promising both comfort and protection.
The "country look" remains the single most popular American style. Despite social and economic changes and the whims of fashion, it continues to shape our design and decorating tastes. Now
in these lavishly illustrated pages, American Farmhouses offers a rich and inspiring survey of
country architecture and design, from painted furniture to porches, stenciling to saltbox houses.
Part of the appeal of country homes lies in their hand-hewn individualism and heritage of Old  World charm. Many familiar design elements derived from distinct traditions brought by the early settlers, then adapted to local conditions and materials. Even in the early twentieth century, most country houses were still designed and constructed by local craftsmen, resulting in an immensely rich variety still visible in farms large and small across the country.Today, the interior of a country home can be a meticulous restoration in a traditional style or a flea-market mix of furnishings and collectibles. The nearly twenty profiles of country homes in American Farmhouses, ranging from a rustic German-style house in Texas to a classic Greek Revival in upstate New York to a contemporary reinterpretation in Connecticut, are full of stimulating and original ideas.

Colonial Style
Nostalgia for a past that "was simpler, somehow better" has led to the enduring popularity of
Colonial-style architecture and decor, writes Crochet (Designer's Guide to Furniture Styles). While new Colonial-style houses are being built across the country, older homes are being restored to their past glory. Focusing on three house styles from the 17th and 18th centuries - Colonial, Cape Cod and Saltbox - Crochet shows readers how such homes can retain historically accurate features while accommodating modern needs. Without being too much of a purist (she advocates knocking down interior walls if a house feels claustrophobic), Crochet stresses the importance of creating a unified look: she's particularly keen on concealing televisions, microwaves and sinks by adapting period pieces of furniture to house them. While restoration buffs will relish the book's details on such things as quirk bead molding, gunstock corner posts and strap hinges, those seeking to bring some history to a newer home will find hints on incorporating salvaged floorboards or recreating authentic-looking plaster walls and wood paneling. Although the book is generally helpful and looks beautiful, it's marred by poor editing: some writing is sloppy, and repetitions abound (must we be repeatedly told, for instance, that decorative molding was more ornate in public rooms than in kitchens and servants' quarters?).

Romantic Prairie Style
Romantic Prairie Style embraces simple pleasures, comfort and the long-cherished ideals of natural beauty, simplicity and harmony with the earth. It's a style that says 'home' wherever you may be because, more than anything else, it's a mindset: gentle but strong, welcoming and lasting, durable yet sophisticated and, above all, real. Over the centuries, the humble dwellings built by European immigrants to the US in the 1880s have evolved into sturdier, more comfortable homes, which, depending on their geographic location, took on a variety of designs, be it a ranch, cabin, farmhouse, cottage or adobe. Each of these styles plays a role in prairie style and its enduring aura of romance and nostalgia. Here interiors bear the influence of European settlers and the poetry of the heart-warming authenticity of simple, natural textures, hand-hewn beams, bleached wood, weathered planks, woven blankets, cow-hide and Navajo rugs. It's a style inspired by the honesty of homespun materials of the past wedded to a flair for the present. It's flower-sprigged brocade, tawny leather, crisp eyelet and soft linen, corduroy with crochet trims, woolen plaids, cosy flannel and wispy organza. It's history retold and all about the enduring connection between people and places and the nostalgia we feel for a rural country life, a yearning for a simpler life, as embodied in Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie.

Civil War Quilts
With over 170 photos and an engaging text, this book tells the stories of fourteen extraordinary
Civil War quilts and the women who made them. Some of these quilts tell love stories, others
relate the determination of women seeking an active role in the war effort, and some of patriotism and creative abilities of people caring about others. All of these quilts tell stories of struggle and survival. In addition, this book contains information for making traditional 19th century bindings and potholder quilts, plus over 45 patterns for making reproduction Civil War era quilts. Also included is information on reproduction fabrics and how to participate in modern soldier-related community service quilting. This book is a must read for any serious quilter, historian, or Civil War enthusiast.

Colonials (Updating Classic America)
Chapter 1 discusses the history of the colonial home in America, and covers what makes a home "colonial" style. He covers everything; the Early American Saltbox, Georgian, Dutch Colonial, French Colonial, Federal and Adams style, Classical Revival, and Post WWII Colonials - even the differences between northern and southern colonials.

Chapter 2 is about remodeling an existing house. What types of additions work when you need to expand? Do you really need to expand at all? What are the planning and zoning considerations? He mentions the difficulties involved in getting the vaulted ceiling look,especially on the first floor since most colonials have two stories.

Chapter 3 deals with renovating an older colonial. There are special considerations for colonial
homes that were built in the 17th and 18th centuries, such as how to hide the wiring or how to
create a 21st century bathroom. There are different problems involved for someone trying to
renovate a colonial home that was built in the 1950's. One interesting example shows a saltbox
house believed to have been originally built in 1694. The owners were attempting to undo a series of previous renovations that had occurred over the years and, in the process, made some very interesting archaeological discoverie.

Chapter 4 is for the intrepid soul who is building a new colonial home. You have a lot more freedom in the design when starting from the ground up.

Chapter 5 is entitled "A Fresh Perspective." It includes such informative subheadings as,
"This is not your father's colonial" and "A new sensibility." If you're a traditionalist, take
that as a warning. However, you don't have to be as "out there" with changes to your
own colonial home and there is a lot of good basic information in this book.
