Rustic Dreams and Real Western LivingBook - 2000
Stone fireplaces, rustic wooden beams, Navajo blankets draped over leather sofas--the charming architecture and interiors so beloved from western movies and TV shows distinguish the beautiful homes in Rancho Deluxe. From rugged adobe structures to the rustic glamour of a little known Hearst ranch (designed by Julia Morgan) to a contemporary house that rises out of its red cliff surroundings, Rancho Deluxe takes the "home on the range" to inspired new heights. Alan Weintraubs beautiful photographs and Alan Hess's insightful text combine for a detailed and elegant portrayal of the ranch house, the definitive home of the American West whose ruggedly comfortable style has been imitated all over the world. Featuring extensive architectural and interior details, plus historical sources, Rancho Deluxe is the essential guide to living in style, the Western way.
