Bernard Maybeck Visionary Architect (USED)

$16.99
More Info
Now available in paperback, this bestselling volume chronicles one of the most innovative, influential, and beloved architects of the early 20th century.

Gracefully written and brilliantly illustrated, this handsome new volume captures the vision, the wit, and the down-to-earth inventiveness of one of the most influential and beloved architects of the early twentieth century.

Raised in Greenwich Village and trained in Paris, Maybeck spent most of his long career in northern California. An irrepressible bohemian with no desire to run a large office, he spent much of his time designing houses for friends and family, as well as for other patrons so loyal that they often hired him to design more than one house. Maybeck also created two of the most beautiful buildings in all of California: the exhilarating Church of Christ, Scientist, in Berkeley, and the gloriously romantic Palace of Fine Arts, in San Francisco.

This incisive overview--the first to feature color reproductions of Maybeck's exquisite interiors and exteriors--analyzes every aspect of his life and work. Not only his architecture but also his furniture, his lighting designs, and his innovations in fire-resistant construction are thoroughly discussed and illustrated. The book is also enlivened by documentary photographs, by clearly drawn plans, and by several of Maybeck's dazzling, previously unpublished visionary drawings.

Bernard Maybeck is a major study of an internationally significant architect whose environmentally responsive work has much to offer today's designers and whose houses have given enormous pleasure to those fortunate enough to visit or dwell in them.

    Color Your Home (USED)

    $5.99
    More Info
    Color Your Home is a personal, intuitive exploration of vibrant, sensual colors in nature, and an easy-to-use guide for expressing our passions and selves in the colors we choose to adorn our homes. But how does one go beyond the "rules" of color to discover what hues inspire and drive us and show us how to incorporate them into living spaces? Design expert and author Carol Bass encourages everyone to throw out the rules and start fresh by building a new relationship with color through nature and the outdoors. She shows how to identify colors that stimulate and thrill us as individuals, making it easy to explore this connection and create charm, warmth, and a unique sense of individuality.
    Bass gently guides even the novice decorator on a journey of discovery, showing how small changes with color can create a more captivating room. After all, nature is not shy about color, so why should we be? Rich, orange-red tones of farmers market tomatoes, lavender-black hues of mussel shells from the beach, the patina of aged wood and stone -- all can provide endlessly stimulating color ideas. Bass shows us how to think of using these tones as ingredients in recipes to liven up a room. Take a giant step outside, breathe in the scent of peonies, wrap yourself in a field, and bring those feelings home.
    Carol Bass is an artist, interior designer, and prolific author. In 1988, she cofounded Maine Cottage Furniture in Yarmouth, Maine, whose designs may be found in 200 stores across the United States. Her award-winning furniture designs have been described as "straight from the heart," "spontaneous and direct," and "bold and full of energy." Her work has been featured in Metropolitan Home, Country Home, Redbook, Country Living, In Style, Coastal Living, Better Homes and Gardens, House and Garden, and Cottage Living. She lives in Maine and is the author of Maine Living (Gibbs Smith, 2004).
