How can you bring the beauty and grace of the past into your own home? The rich, idiosyncratic aura of bygone days evokes a sense of roots--whether grand or modest, playful or serious--that offers comfort, ease, and, above all, warmth. It is this ambiance of character and charm that Steve Gross and Sue Daley have captured so stunningly in At Home with the Past. Filled with more than 150 glorious full-color photographs, this sumptuous book showcases twenty homes whose owners have re-created the best of the past while mixing in contemporary conveniences and the sparkle of modern wit. Steve Gross and Sue Daley exhibit a genius for uncovering extraordinary homes all across the country. Some of their finds are luxurious, some are genuinely old, but many are modest houses and apartments that have been decorated and furnished with more imagination than money. Whether it's a rustic cabin in New Mexico, a Long Island garage turned into a guest cottage, a rundown Savannah townhouse, or a Manhattan loft filled with flea market finds, these are homes that range across a wide variety of styles and budgets. The owners explain how they came to make their choices and share with readers a multitude of decorating tips and insights that offer both guidance and inspiration. With its wealth of exquisite photographs, At Home with the Past is a visual feast for anyone seeking to re-create the beauty of the old in order to imbue their surroundings with a true sense of place.
