In The Good Home, readers will discover, step by step, the picturesque techniques they can use to give their house a sense of soul-a character that arouses emotions and sentiment. Drawing from a full-color portfolio of "soulful" homes, this guide examines such interior and exterior design techniques as focal points, shaped spaces, transparency, and enfilade, as well as, lighting, landscaping, and much more. For anyone considering building a house who likes traditional building styles with a contemporary twist, The Good Home will be an important addition to the library.
