I took this out of the library and brought it back without finishing as I needed to buy this to read this cover to cover. I got two, one for me (not thrilled with the design of my house, lacks ... warmth, usability, charm) and a second for a friend in the process of building. The concepts aren't specific to a particular style. The most useful I found so far was that the appearance of the outside of the house sets the expectations for what will be seen inside the house. Hmmm, no wonder my place feels disjointed. Squared off white spindles on the deck and front door landing with honey colored turned oak spindles just inside the front door on the stairway. Immediate clash. From this concept alone I can see I have some work to do getting the inside of my house to live up to the exterior, a cheery cottagey looking colonial.
