Home space. It is the space where people dance, sit, read, sleep, share meals with family and friends, laugh, feel secure, face the world. The idea of space changed drastically with houses built under the influence of the Arts and Crafts movement. Interior opened up, floor plans become more asymmetrical, the uses of space became more flexible, small spaces assumed new meanings, life within the house flowed more freely, and there was a strong bonding made between space withing the home and with the natural world outside.
San Francisco Chronicle : The book is filled with lavish color photographs and discusses how the Arts & Crafts movement came into being, how it was expressed in various regions of the country, and how current devotees can re-create its interior features.

|Seaside, Florida is a town designed as an "ideal" community in the Southern vernacular style, where houses have front porches and verandahs, picket fences and sleeping porches, and pitched tin roofs with ample overhangs. Seaside, along with other new planned towns and communities, sets an important precedent for all new small towns and will long be looked to as a model for those living in tropical climes, on the water, or in coastal communities.|
Now, for the very first time, the reader is given a privileged view of the inside of this extraordinary community-how people actually live in it-how they have arranged their spaces, furnished their homes, and planted their gardens to take advantage of the beauty by which they are surrounded. This book, as the title suggests, lays out a vision of coastal living based on this ideal community.
