Hardcover

552 pages

This book is in very good vintage condition. The dust jacket shows wear, but is protected by a plastic cover. No major wear to the interior. Tons of reference materials, space planning, black/white photographs and full color photographs.

From the inside flap:

A home should not be just a neat shelter — a tidy structure of walls and roof — but a place of domestic comfort where people can live in physical and emotional security, gratified and stimulated by their environment. It is the purpose of Inside Today’s Home to help the reader make his home respond to the functional and personality needs of both families and individuals.

The authors examine the home in terms of design, construction, furnishings, adornment, function, and cost through such unifying themes as use, economy, beauty, and individuality. Specific coverage is given to the materials used in the home construction, to an analysis of functional planning, and to such major elements as doors, windows, fireplaces, exteriors, and landscape design. The text provides a broad contemporary scope encompassing changes in our ideas of beauty and appropriateness that are the result of recent technological developments, new materials, and new products. The history of environmental design, as it evolved in Italy, Spain, France, England, and the United States is covered in five richly illustrated chapters that are new to this edition.
