Traditional American Rooms: Celebrating Style, Craftsmanship, and Historic Woodwork
By Brent Hull and Christine G. H. Franck, foreword by Barbra Streisand
Experience the elegance of historic American architecture on this guided tour of the magnificent rooms at the Winterthur Museum & Country Estate. Oversized photos introduce you to 33 beautiful rooms followed by detailed presentation of the architectural elements that define the era and character of each space. To that end, every baseboard, chair rail, door-and-window trim, and ceiling cornice has been measured and drawn as a scaled molding section. For the first time, Winterthur has been captured in gallery-quality photographs, technical drawings, and architectural commentary allowing homeowners, interior designers, architects, and builders to create authentic interpretations of classic American rooms.
