The classic American bungalow is as
popular today as when introduced in the Victorian era. Bungalow Style pictures a wide
variety of interior details and describes how to add or restore elements that suggest a
historic flair while keeping the home comfortable and functional. Common problems such as
integrating modern conveniences or gaining needed space are also addressed.
The term "bungalow" may
bring a specific image to mind, but it really is one part of a much larger family. In
Beyond the Bungalow, well-known designer, author, and television personality Paul
Duchscherer celebrates the remarkable artistic beauty, craftsmanship, and diversity of
style of an entire genre of larger-scale Craftsman-period homes. Beyond the Bungalow
includes popular architectural styles like Swiss Chalet, Mission, Spanish Colonial
Revival, Tudor, and more. With beautiful interior photography, this book is more than just
an excellent resource, it is endless inspiration for the Arts & Crafts enthusiast
looking for design ideas that go beyond the ordinary one-story bungalow.
Exploring the creations of
architects and designers, art and antique specialists, landscaping and lighting experts,
and artists of all sorts, this resource for fashioning exquisite residences exhibits the
work and advice of Southwestern design professionals from Phoenix to Austin.
