Experience 15 of the West’s finest rustic modern homes in this beautifully written and photographed book.
An intimate peek into rustic modern private homes and other properties across the Mountain West and California: traditional log cabins, sustainable projects, artist studios, and places for play—inspired interior decor and exteriors, all beautifully photographed and discussed in elegant prose.
In this gorgeous follow up to American Rustic (Gibbs Smith, 2015), detailed perspectives from the homeowners, architects, and designers who brought these diverse spaces to life guide the narration. Individual home’s stories are complemented by full-page photography: rustic textiles warm living spaces, uniquely crafted chandeliers suspend from vaulted ceilings, and sweeping vistas out every window are sure to inspire. Homes featured are located in Montana, Wyoming, New Mexico, California, and Colorado.
Whether driven by one’s interest in modern architecture, rustic interior decor, or simply a beautiful portrait of the homes and lifestyles of the west, this stunning book is the perfect gift for hosts, friends, or oneself.
