Mexican Country StyleTotal Hits - 471  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (7)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
$19.95 gatefold paper * 1-58685-255-8 * April 8 1/2 x 10 in, 160 pp, 140 Color Photographs, 30 Black & White Photographs, Rights: W, Design Now in paperback, Mexican Country Style is the classic that helped launch the popular Mexican design revival. Authors Karen Witynski and Joe P. Carr navigated coastal villages and old colonial mining towns by bus and burro, bumping down narrow cobblestone streets in search of simple and utilitarian elements like country tables, workbenches, storage trunks, corral gates, and heavy old doors. Intrigued by the diversity they encountered, the authors documented the wide variety in style, design, and shape of each object they encountered. Weathered coffee mortars, milking stools shaped like animals, and sculptured sugar molds reflect a rich local history as well as the ingenuity of the hands that crafted them. Mexican Country Style is the result of those fascinating journeys and boundless discoveries, a celebration of a rugged, romantic beauty and magical antiquity that continues to make its way into the contemporary interiors, gardens, and commercial settings across the country. Award-winning authors Karen Witynski and Joe P. Carr have been at the forefront of the Mexican design movement for over twenty-five years as interior designers and antiques dealers. Their Mexican design book series includes six titles: Mexican Country Style, The New Hacienda, Casa Adobe, Adobe Details, Casa Yucatan, and Mexican Details. Based in Austin, Texas, Carr and Witynski are the owners of Texture Antiques, an interior design firm and gallery specializing in hacienda style, Mexican colonial furniture, and architectural elements. Their design work has been featured in Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, and dozens of other magazines and newspapers. Individually, Witynski photographs homes and gardens for national publications and Carr is a hacienda consultant and furniture designer.

Miniarch: Bathrooms Total Hits - 502  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
The bathroom is a paradox: as the most private room in any living space, it is also a room that everyone from the closest family members to the most casual guests visit. Today's bathrooms have grown away from being simply water closets, and more time than ever is invested in selection of materials and decorations for these essential, yet relatively private, spaces. In recent years, bathroom design has taken cues from lush, exalted styles traditionally reserved for bedrooms and other private spaces in the home.

Miniarch: Bathrooms is a photomontage of elegant, austere, unique, and, at times, clever accessories and fixtures for the bathroom. Designer sinks, showerheads, basins, backsplashes, countertops, natural tile, and more will inspire designers, architects, and the creative homeowner with new ideas and options for the bathroom. This book presents a selection of contemporary designs that advocate sensual, luminous spaces in which our daily ablutions become genuine pleasures.
