9781586854355: Extraordinary Interiors: Decorating with Architectural Salvage & Antiques

Architectural salvage is all about saving and reusing unique bits and pieces of the past--whether from old buildings, businesses, or homes--and preserving them as beautiful reminders of the talent and artistry of yesteryear. Extraordinary Interiors shows how architectural elements and antiques--such as a 200-year-old solid-oak door, an Arts & Crafts fireplace mantel, a Victorian stained-glass window, or an Art Deco lamp--can impart character and heritage to any home, even if you never got around to buying that perfectly restored historic home of your dreams. See how vintage sinks, hardware, and lighting are perfectly blended into new environments, giving the items a new lease on life, and in the process, preserving them for future generations to enjoy.
From a Manhattan brownstone to a Marin county barn-turned-cottage, Coleman has documented an exquisite array of homes in locations across the country. See how a large Arts & Crafts apartment is restored to its original 1916 décor with salvage finds and a little sleight of hand, a San Francisco row house is reborn with glamorous salvage, and a tranquil, Vermont retreat is enlivened with salvaged, nineteenth-century architecture in this beautifully photographed new book.
Brian D. Coleman, M.D., is a practicing psychiatrist in Seattle, Washington, and the author of several books including Scalamandre: Luxurious Home Interiors, Classic Cottages, and Vintage Victorian Textiles. His articles on historic home design have been published in a variety of magazines such as, Old House Journal and Period Living (U.K.), and he is the West Coast editor for Old House Interiors. He divides his time between New York and Seattle. Dan Mayers is a New York-based photographer whose work appears regularly in Country Decorating Magazine's Cottage Style, Country Collectibles, Country Victorian and Old House Interiors. His work has been included in books such as Scalamandre: Luxurious Home Interiors and The Ultimate Kitchen.

From the Inside Flap:

Architectural salvage is all about saving and reusing bits and pieces of old buildings and construction, reminders of the talent and artistry of yesteryear. Brian Coleman shows how architectural elements and antiques--such as a 200-year-old solid-oak door, an Arts & Crafts fireplace mantel, a Victorian stained-glass window, or an Art Deco lamp--can impart character and heritage to any home. See how vintage sinks, hardware, and lighting are perfectly blended into new environments, giving the items a new lease on life and, in the process, preserving them for future generations. From a Manhattan brownstone to a Marin County barn-turned-cottage, Coleman has documented an exquisite array of home styles incorporating salvage items in imaginative ways. Extraordinary doors, mantels, windows, sinks, hardware, lighting, art pieces, and more are attractively blended into new environments to start a second life and give character to newer homes. No place to install a salvaged window? Why not turn it into a mirror and put it on prominent display in your living room. In need of window shades for a funky bedroom? Some quirky pull-down maps salvaged from an old school can give your room personality plus. Apothecary doors can become classy cabinet fronts; and antiques of every type can take clever places in your decor. More than 150 photographs by Dan Mayers will inspire you to enliven your own environment with found and rescued objects from the lovely to the quirky. Brian D.
