| ||"The Zimmermans, whose work has appeared in a number of architecture and design books and periodicals, show the array of styles that make up California cottages. Each home is depicted in numerous photographs."--Library Journal|
California cottages are famed for their openness and creatively designed interiors, and this magnificent tribute brilliantly showcases the variety of styles that belong to the tradition. Splendid photographs taken by a prominent architectural photographer present Pioneer, Queen Anne, Spanish Colonial Revival, Craftsman, and Tudor revival homes, some designed by major figures, such as Frank Lloyd Wright. Take a look at the examples and see exactly what makes cottages different from other houses, and how to make the most of their beauty. Each one will inspire fresh ideas for decorating in small spaces and gracing every square foot with lovely details.
