    House 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.

    The 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 design advice.

    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.
