Rustic Modern

This lushly photographed home design book offers an intimate tour through rustic modern residences across California and the Mountain West.

Following their acclaimed volume American Rustic, design writer Chase Reynolds Ewald and photographer Audrey Hall have teamed up once again to explore fifteen Western homes with a fresh take on rustic style. Here you’ll find contemporary approaches to traditional log cabins, sustainable projects, artist studios, and places for play. The inspired interior decor and exteriors are all beautifully photographed and discussed in elegant prose.

Rustic Modern also offers detailed perspectives from the homeowners, architects, and designers who brought these diverse spaces to life. Individual home’s stories are complemented by full-page photography. The rustic textiles, warm living spaces, uniquely crafted chandeliers suspend from vaulted ceilings, and sweeping vistas out every window are sure to inspire.
