Transformed : Getting the Home You Want . . . with the House You Have
by Matthew Schoenherr, Linda Hunter, Wendy Jordan
Though seemingly stout and permanent, houses are malleable, able
to flex, stretch, shift, and even shrink. Remodeling can enliven all
the spaces in a home, solving flaws, enhancing interior livability,
increasing curb appeal, and making best use of the site. In some cases,
an addition is needed, while in others merely changing the floor plan
permits a rediscovery of space.
In House Transformed, architect Matt Schoenherr shares insight gained
through an architectural practice specializing in renovation work.
The 20 projects in this portfolio offer homeowners clever, workable
ideas and answers, from connecting new and old parts of a house to
gaining needed space through clever storage solutions. Not only has
every home in the book undergone a remarkable renovation, but each
features great moves, small moves, and simple transformations that
are easily applied to any home.
This book also features radical before and after photos of beautifully
transformed homes and provides a handy blueprint for design decisions.

and provide helpful decorating hints and ideas for anyone looking

House in Good Taste
by Elsie De Wolfe, Albert Hadley
After ninety years, The House in Good Taste by America's "first
lady of interior decoration," Elsie de Wolfe, still offers timeless
Compiled from her articles in newspapers and magazines and first
published in 1914, The House in Good Taste is a seminal book on interior
design with ideas that have lasted a century because they influenced
not only the wealthy clients of Park Avenue and Palm Beach, but popular
taste as well.
De Wolfe advised Americans to shun ostentation and clutter in favor
of simplicity, to dismantle the draperies in order to let in the light,
and to replace garish colors with beige and ivory. "I believe
in plenty of optimism and white paint," she declared, "comfortable
chairs with lights beside them, open fires on the hearth and flowers
wherever they 'belong,' mirrors and sunshine in all rooms." The
rooms that Americans inhabited in the middle of the twentieth century
still today owe much to de Wolfe's tastes.
