Here’s just a sampling of what you’ll see inside this beautifully photographed book by Gil Schafer III – classic home exteriors, gorgeous architecture, and tasteful interiors. Many of which will take your breath away.
This book contains all that I love about home interiors and decorating. Houses with gorgeous details like crown molding, wide plank wood floors, and beautiful, timeless interiors.
Older homes possess a certain charm not found in new houses – unless the owner has paid for a lot of custom work. You can almost feel the soul of an older home, and that’s what I find so endearing about them.
What a grand bathroom! You’ll find plenty more inspirational images like this one when flipping through the pages of The Great American House.
Gil Schafer is a talented architect whose work has appeared in numerous publications. Check out his website and you’ll see why.
There is so much to love in this room. From the wood-beamed paneled ceilings to the custom woodwork around the fireplace and French doors, to the rich wood wide-planked floors. Houses just don’t get any better than this.
I’ve always had a thing for staircases with a wooden banister that curves – and check out the details on the outside of each stair step. Add the old wood floors and detailed trim and you’ve got a stunner of a house!
A gallery wall decorates a staircase landing, and did you notice the window shelf at left?
One house is just as beautiful as the next in this dreamy and inspirational book.
Gil Schafer is an acclaimed architect who specializes in building new “old” houses as well as restoring historic homes. He blends classic architecture, interior decoration, and landscape to create homes with a feeling of history – and he does it so well!
