The California Revival style of home design is a new movement, an indoor-outdoor design that uses vintage furnishings, art pottery, tile, paintings and decorative arts from California's Spanish Revival period of the 1920s to 1940s. Carole Coates and Annie Dietz take you inside ten "real" homes and share secrets from scores more, including top collections that demonstrate how to achieve this enlivening and color-saturated style. The book contains over 600 color images with detailed captions and an engaging text. See historic Malibu pottery, Catalina Island pottery and tile, Bauer pottery, Taylor tiles, Monterey furniture, San Jose Workshop murals from Texas, ironwork, paintings, textiles, and more. This friendly and individualized style can be adjusted to suit your personality and tastes whether your architecture is Ranch or Mexicana, Spanish Revival or Modern, Cabin or Lodge, Mission or European. You learn why this vintage California home decor is on the cutting edge with leading interior designers, museums, and collectors across the country.
