Modern Country PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Modern Country free pdf Containing rarely seen images from the exclusive Cote Maison magazines, this sumptuous book brings together homes that exemplify the very best in contemporary country style - perennially desirable and effortlessly attainable. Country living has long been associated with a relaxed, informal way of life and a sense of tradition. This strong appreciation of rural traditions does not mean, however, that all country homes are relics of the past, set in decorative aspic. Contemporary solutions and innovative ideas work equally well when old spaces are given over to new uses, converted, renovated or just revived. It's impossible to deny that modern country style is still based on traditional rural values. Lightness of living is always important- an understanding of the things that make life pleasant, such as family and friends, comfort and ease, food and drink. Presenting some of the most exciting examples of the contemporary interior design, Modern Country is full of inspiration on how to achieve that highly desirable ideal of comfortable country living combined with the clean lines and edited design of today. The four sections of this book will consider the appeal of contemporary rural havens, mountain retreats and coastal escapes- survey agricultural conversions, country house renovations and new building in the natural landscape- and the use of different materials, such as stone, brick and glass. The final part of the book is dedicated to different living spaces in the home that reflect the warm pace of life in the country while being resolutely modern.
