It wasn't helpful that, despite the fact that I ordered a brand NEW copy directly from Amazon, the hardbound copy arrived with its corners rubbed, no dustcover and mmanyof its pages dog-eared from having been jammed into too small a box. Now, I'm as much a fan of rustic and primitive design as well as anyone, when it's well done, but the dearth of well co-ordinated interiors presented in the book is beyond disappointing. The design directives of the author appears to be, "First, patch the leaks in that old shack you have out back--the one you thought about razing. Second, furnish it with those two dilapidated outdoor chairs that your wife has been begging you to toss out. Third, add a dented aluminum coffee pot, and when the coffee's done, sit yourself down on the floor to enjoy a cup. And, oh yeah, don't forget to include those old Indian blankets that are going to waste in the back of your truck. (They'll come in handy when the wind finally blows through the slats!)" You get the idea.
There are a few small chalets, houseboats and tree-houses with interesting exteriors included; but there is a general dearth of well co-ordinated interiors represented. I was taken aback to discover that the the cabin chosen for the book's cover photo seemed oddly familiar to me. I then realized that it reminded me of a cabin I once rented for a week in beautiful Yosemite Valley. It too exuded a certain primitive charm that included chicken wire for windows, a "holey" mattress for sleeping and a couple of friendly snakes living in the crawl space, under what remained of the front steps. Needless to say, the best part of that experience was the 360 degree Valley view that the cabin's location afforded me. That may be the author's point in avoiding structured interior design here, but it simply isn't reason enough, on its own merit, to purchase the book!

Minimal and Rustic2021年5月30日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This book was not for me but I gave it 5 stars b/c it may not be my taste or what I was looking for but it was multi-national and every page has color photos. I have true log cabin and was hoping for decor and remodeling ideas....even outbuilding and landscaping ideas. This book was far more minimalistic and rustic than interests me.
