This is by far the best cabin/camp book I own! Pages and pages of gorgous camps and cabins with wonderful decorating. I own many rustic decorating books and this is tops!! All Ralph Kylloes books are great but this one is the best! The pictures of inside all the beautiful camps and cabins is a true feast for the eye! I look at this book at least once a week and never tire of the homes and always put the book down with more ideas on how to make my home more rustic and adirondack/camp like. I can't imagine if you are a person that is into camp decorating that you would ever be disatisfied-it is truely the best of its kind!!
Beautiful coffee table book. The pictures are large and there are many of them. The focus of the book was on the Adirondack style mostly and birch Adirondack style furniture.
Here is the deal....if you want to see some incredible furniture that real talent has produced, this is the book. If you would like some great ideas, this is the book. If you would like to learn how to make the furniture, this is not the book as there is nothing in it to that end. I would purchase this book again in a heart beat because what you see exemplifies this art form
This book is a banquet for the eyes. The reader feasts upon the visuals and is drawn into the rooms, the homes, and one can almost smell the wood.The author knows his subject and shares it well. I keep my copy on the coffee table in the living room as a wonderful accent to the room.It reads well and I am intrigued as to who the owners might be of the wonderful houses, homes, structures. Privacy is very important, but that is my only "complaint" with the book. I would like to know who the owners are. It would seem more personal.The book is wonderful.
Read and looked at the photo's in one of Ralph Kylloe's books and started buying more books by Ralph Kylloe. He is truly the expert on Rustic furniture, great knowledge and wonderful writing style and photo's are excellent.
I enjoyed this book but found it a little too rustic; kind of over-the-top for the average rustic aficionado. The same styles were repeated over and over with little variation.
