This work provides inspiration, and practical advice for using architectural salvage in your home. It focuses on the particular features that benefit from careful attention and a patina of age eg fireplaces, mantles and door handles. Smaller format HB at affordable price makes this the most accessible guide around. From the author of "Extraordinary Interiors: Decorating with Architectural Salvage and Antiques" comes a whole new source of decorating inspiration. No matter the style or location of a home, architectural salvage can quickly add character and charm to any room, whether it's with an old soapstone sink in a suburban bungalow or a Victorian wrought-iron railing recast as a fireplace screen in an urban high-rise apartment. The possibilities are endless - and with the right amount of imagination and a slightly mischievous attitude, architectural salvage can pack a delightfully beautiful decorating punch. Find out the answers to common questions such as "How do I use an old stained glass window that isn't the right size?" or "What exactly is the right type of mantel for my home?"
