Weekend Retreats is a celebration of the intimate narratives of retreat and relaxation--from charming coastal New England houses to restive woodland retreats. Lifestyle meets design know-how and inspiration in this thoughtful collection of design influences and singular approaches to well-lived style that will inspire all those wishing to style their country homes. Whether your idea of serenity abounds in rustic antiques or a plethora of well-curated oil paintings and designer throw pillows, the homes featured are distinctively enjoyed and the histories of design decisions are unraveled in savvy detail. This collection features not only beautifully styled rooms but also playful gardenscapes where the owners entertain and enjoy their retreats away from the inconveniences of modern life. Every space is a playground for the owners, and their tastes and whimsies are reflected in their unique colors, textures, and designs. The book includes modern country style interiors with glimpses of vintage antiques and casual elegance. From objects collected from travels abroad to artifacts of the good life, Weekend Retreats will provide escape from the ordinary.

Not much knotty pine here! Definitely on the luxe side, but still many great ideas for the stuff that makes a cottage your family's true home....
