Farmhouses: Stylish Decorating Ideas for the Classic American Home (Country Living) - Marie Proeller Hueston (Boek)

Take a tour of charming farmhouses, presented Country Living style. Breathtaking photographs, accompanied by in-depth design specifics, reveal the myriad ways these old-fashioned homes can fit beautifully into our modern lives. See sophisticated farmhouses that artfully combine old and new; homes entirely decorated in flea-market finds; showcases for magnificent antiques; and contemporary redefinitions of loft-like spaces. Each profile goes room by room, carefully explaining the owner's needs, desires, and design decisions, from wall treatments and light fixtures to shelving and appliances.

A contributing editor to Country Living magazine, Marie Proeller Hueston writes frequently about decorating, collecting, and lifestyle trends. Country Living Weddings, Country Living Cottage Style, and House Beautiful Decorating with Books are just a few of the titles she's written for Hearst Books in the past decade. In 2010, she published her first picture book, The All-American Jump and Jive Jig (Sterling), under the name M.P. Hueston. A Christmas picture book will follow from Sterling in 2012. Hueston is also a collector of antique and vintage children's books and she still has many of the dog-eared volumes she read as a girl. Among her favorites were Miss Suzy by Miriam Young and Arnold Lobel, Father Fox's Pennyrhymes by Clyde and Wendy Watson, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss, and Go Dog Go by P.D. Eastman. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband, son, and daughter.
