Cabin Fever has been an inspiration. I have owned this book for several years, and never tire of paging through it to have fun its lovely images of both vintage cabins in the Adirondacks or national parks, or newer homes styled with timeless panache. As I have furnished my own cabin in the woods, it has been a handy tutorial and I am satisfied to say that whomever visits my home now remarks on its warmth and charm. "Did you use a decorator?" they ask. Nope--didn't need one because I own Cabin Fever.
This book is not only a pictorial pleasure with the most gorgeous photographs, but also provided a amazing history on the homes and camps in the Adirondack Style era, and info on how this type of home design started and more. An perfect coffee table book, PLUS one for the inquisitive mind that loves info and history about topics of interest.
There seem to be innumerable books on the shop about the Adirondacks and everything associated with them and their history. A lot of of these are of small interest to me, being, typically, contemporary design and lifestyle books. This book, however, is really far ahead of the pack, in my opinion. Lynn Woods and Jane Macintosh have performed a amazing service to the history of the amazing camps and the rustic lodges of the Adirondacks. In this book they provide detailed discussions of a huge number of these compounds, accompanied by perfect black-and-white photographs and some schematic floor my opinion this is, by far, the best book on the shop on the architectural and social history of this unbelievable genre of buildings.
It was hard to determine how a lot of starts to give this book since I have only cooked a few recipes. However, the one thing I immediately noticed was the ingredients. I live in Los Angeles and there are at least 10 grocery stores within a ten-mile radius and I doubt I can find: fava leaves, lamb riblets, haricots, cardoons, guinea hen, quinces, chanterelles, morels, etc. There are a lot of recipes that do have simple to search ingredients.
Very nice book. I was expecting a bit more of the "living" portion of the title to be included in the book, but overall I'm happy and can't wait to test some of the recipes.Well, except the snails. I draw the line at eating snails. ;)
One of Georgeanne Brennan's best books ever. A unbelievable breadth of recipes to work through (and search delight in). Whenever I cook something of Georgeanne's I obtain raves, with people always commenting on the depths of flavors. They think it's gourmet, but it's really the simplest of foods to prepare, cooking that relies on quality of ingredients, freshness, and realness that most Americans simply aren't used to, even in the middle of California farm land where it's a veritable garden, but most still eat like it's the 50s, or at most the anne's recipes will elevate your dining experience and obtain you thinking about reconnecting with the earth it comes from. There's nothing better in cooking than being able to go out and pick new herbs and salad just mins before using them, or growing what you can, even if it's in a don't have to, of course. Shop bought everything will yield unbelievable results with this book of recipes ok your method through it and you not only obtain some amazing meals, but you're also introduced to a fresh method of thinking, and the experience of cooking through this now informs your future cooking -- all for the better.Highly recommended.

I just received this gorgeous blanket ladder and was super excited to assemble it for my living room. Looks like I'm going to need to wait until my husband can drill some holes in it in order to assemble it. One of the main side planks only has 1 set of holes :(. I'm hoping it with be worth the headache once its done. Other than that, I love the finish on the wood...wish me luck!
Amazing product... A bit smaller than I thought, can't really hold ALL my bills in the mail slot but the key hooks work amazing plus its simple to paint on...my daughter gave it a more private touch& I LOVE IT!
I generally stay away from writing reviews but one of the earlier ones was on the money... the paint job is horrid... it doesn't look weathered or vintage, it looks like a diary cow.. oh and the 'In' on mine was also smudged ... The amazing news is I am painting it anyhow thus the 2 stars rather than a refund but beautiful tacky paint job I'm afraid ! - Buyers be aware
The torched finish with white paint is a special finish. Unfortunately like others one of my long side pieces had one set of pre drilled holes missing. I had to free hand drill the holes using the other side as a template. Some holes were slightly off which created getting the bolts in a small difficult. With a small force and twisting I was able to assemble it. Final product is snug, tight and absolutely gorgeous. Attractive rustic look. It was worth the hassle of assembling it.
I was very happy with this. I had been on the hunt for a blanket ladder and all the ones I have seen had very mixed reviews. I finally pulled the trigger on this item, knowing that it was returnable. I was very happy when it arrived. It comes in all separate pieces but it was very simple to place together. It created such a amazing addition to my apartment and excellent to hang some (of my MANY) blankets on display.
I love the rustic look of this key and mail holder. On looks, it's a five star but I've got to contain functionality which drops my rating. There is a hole in the center top to hang this. Simple enough but if you only use one hook to keep your keys it becomes off centered. I had to by Command stripes and use it on the bottom so that it held it steady. That method I didn't have to have keys on each hook to hold it centered or hold it from being lopsided. Also, the mail holder is for a few pieces of standard size envelopes which isn't really the size of standard mail anymore. So, this is really just for decor purposes.
While the design and look of this item is great, it is not at all useful. The mail box doesn't actually fit most mail. Also, unless you have two sets of keys on at all times the item sits crooked. I do not recommend buying this product.
The detail on this wall mail hanger is amazing! It came assembled so I literally took out of the box and hung it right up. It's a amazing price and serves a amazing function. It's a cute addition to add a bit of practicality to my apartment when I walk in. I definitely recommend buying it!
Despite the amazing and poor reviews, I ordered this. Whether it was rustic or not, it still fit the look I was going for in our bathroom. It DID look rustic, looks fabulous. I use it as a towel ladder due to lack of storage and it works perfect. Some of screws were hard to line up, took a bit of frustration to obtain the latest 2 in. My 30-pound two year old climbed on it on day 4 and it didn’t budge so it’s REALLY sturdy.
5 stars across the board.Easy to assemble, took about 15 ry sturdy, a toddler could probably climb on eat value for the money!Bonus, I use it to hide the cords from my sound system! lolLooks amazing and is just so cute!!
If I could give this product 0 stars I would. As you can see we have double letters on the word "Letters". The "In" mailbox is insanely crooked as well. Product feels really flimsy. Would not recommend to my worst enemy.
I honestly knew what I was getting. I read the reviews and looked at the pictures that were posted by other people. It was cute in the picture, but I am not super impressed. It works for what I am using it for so I am not to concerned.
This product is okay. It's the size stated in the description, so that was not a surprise. It doesn't really look "rustic" unless you're standing across the room. It looks more like sharpie smudges around the ctionality:It cannot keep off sized letters, magazine or advertisements.If you only have one set of keys, it may tilt like a scale unless it is tightly screwed in place.If you drop a pen in sideways, it's stuck there forever, unless you unmount this product from the wall.
These are adorable!! I bought them for our teenagers and they love them, too. Excellent for their car/house keys and for me to stick their mail when it comes so it’s not cluttering up countertops and getting lost in their bedrooms. Totally recommend!
I really like the look of the ladder. I just want two things: (and I'm sure one of them was my fault for not reading the fine print)1.) I didn't realize I had to place this together. The screw holes didn't line up all that perfectly which led to much frustration for my husband.2.) I want the screws were weathered or rusted somehow. With the weathered look of the ladder, the shiny screw heads bug me. Maybe there is something I can place on them to dull the shine? Anyone know?
Thank goodness I decided to move this metal container with my Mother’s Day flowers in it — it was leaking like a sieve all over the floor, table and furniture. I’ll line it with plastic wrap so the flowers still have a pot, but then it’s going back. Would it be too much to ask to try that a flower vase actually holds water??
Cute chalkboard and base with quick shipping. Simple to use for my Chalk Couture business. Would suggest to create boards double-sided to be able to Chalk both sides.
The chalkboards were exactly what I had wanted...(maybe a tad smaller, but I'm never amazing at visualizing the sizes based on measurements. Haha) They will be excellent for what I am going to use them for.
Amazing product. Works well with liquid chalk pens. Easily wipes off with a damp cloth. Wood base is amazing quality. Will definitely order again.
These arrived as shown and worked well for what we required them for. A couple of the board edges had minor chips.
These are super cute and inexpensive, but I recommend not using liquid chalk on them because it doesn’t fully come off.
I use these mini chalkboards with liquid chalk. I put them on my tables (and sometimes on the ground) to label my chop flowers/prices at the farmers’ market.
I loved these mini chalkboards. They looked excellent in my back to school decor. I will also use them at thanksgiving to label a buffet of pies. These are amazing for parties and weddings! A bit of a rustic feel...yet classic.
For anyone looking for inspirational pictures of attractive modern rustic homes, you will not be disappointed. The pictures are gorgeous and there is lots of detail in the stories. Full disclosure: I was more interested in the pictures than the text. I also got a copy of their other book, American Rustic. Both were amazing and filled with a lot of attractive shots. American Rustic is older homes, lots of log cabins. Modern Rustic (as you would expect) had more contemporary homes.
I really enjoyed Rustic Modern. I actually purchased the book to obtain some design ideas for a "someday" house that my wife and I will eventually build......someday! The author does a nice job presenting the blending of what is old and traditional and that which is clearly fresh and pointed toward the future. As more of a traditionalist, I was surprised at how much I liked the houses and locations that were included. Of the 16 homes featured, I particularly liked a home from Jackson Hole with barn wood that meets modern design. I could move in tomorrow! Also captivating is the layout of a residence called "Wild Bird" which sits 600 feet above the pacific in Huge Sur; a unbelievable blend of stone, glass, wood, and the surrounding environment. All of the homes featured are beautiful, some state of the art with all of the bells and whistles, yet all still maintaining an abundance of soul and integrity.With stunning photography and Ms. Ewald's sharp narrative, it is an perfect read. Very glad I purchased Rustic Modern!
