With careful planning, anyone can combine the charm of the old with the best of the new! In this comprehensive guide, internationally renowned designer and best-selling author Mary Gilliatt reveals how to successfully renovate a tired, older home into a dazzling interior and exterior showplace.The book begins with an overview of older homes, defining period styles to the 1930s. Mary Gilliatt points out the details to look out for, as well as which ones to avoid. She also shows how to research what the original builders intended, so details can be replicated. Next, Gilliatt discusses the two schools of thought in renovation: the reverential view, which tries to entirely restore and preserve the past of a house; or the sensitive view, which keeps the integrity of the individual while introducing new techniques, new materials, and new spaces. Finally, dozens of case histories of dazzling, real-life renovations offer a breathtaking treasury of inspiration and ideas.
