    Bunny Williams is renowned for her glamorous design and atten­tion to every little detail in her clients’ homes. Using her incredible knowledge of design and decor, and drawing on her wealth of experience, Williams takes the reader through several homes room by room, showing creative ways to organize and add personal touches. From dining rooms (place a chest of drawers near the dining table to store flatware, napkins, place mats, and votives) to lighting (place sconces on the wall at eye level to cut the glare from ceiling lights), and pets (find interesting flat-bottom bowls for water—small Chinese fish bowls or the bottom of a porcelain tureen work perfectly!), Williams empowers the reader with her practical and inspiring tips for making a house a home.

    Dorothy May Kinnicutt Parish (“Sister” to her family and friends) was born into a patrician family and grew up at the right schools, yacht clubs, and coming-out parties. Forced to work during the Depression, Parish combined her design ability with social connections to create a still-thriving successful interior decorating firm, Parish-Hadley. Her list of clients reads like an American Who’s Who, starting with Rockefellers, Astors, Whitneys, and Paleys. Parish’s style, marked by cozy, airy, colorful, but understated elegance, came to be known as “American country,” and its influence continues today. Compiled by Parish’s daughter and granddaughter, Sister Parish takes the reader right into the houses—and lives—of some of the most fascinating people of this inimitable woman’s time.

    Acclaimed architect Gil Schafer illustrates how he blends classical architecture, interior decoration, and landscape to create homes with a feeling of history. As a traditional architect, Gil Schafer specializes in building new "old" houses as well as renovating historic homes. His work takes the best of American historic and classical architecture—its detailed moldings and harmonious proportions—and updates it, retaining its character and detail while simultaneously reworking it to be more in tune with the way we live now—comfortable, practical, family-oriented. In his first book, Schafer covers the three essential cornerstones of creating a great traditional house: architecture, landscape, and decoration. He discusses the important interplay between the interior architecture and the fabrics, furniture, and wall treatments. In-depth profiles build on these essays, including Schafer’s own new "old" house in the Hudson Valley; the renovation of a historic home in Nashville designed by Charles Platt in 1915; and the restoration of a magnificent 1843 Greek Revival mansion in Charleston.Filled with hundreds of interior and detail shots, The Great American House is an invaluable resource for anyone who loves old houses and traditional design.
