Dominique Browning and the editors of House & Garden magazine celebrate the 100th anniversary of their shelter publication with House & Garden Book of Style, featuring contemporary trends. The magazine has documented traditional design and charted the progress of the essential elements of style ""form, color, line, proportion, scale, texture, pattern, and material."" Grouped according to updated classics, new international, country luxe, minimalism, bohemian chic, grand tour, and midcentury modern, the trends explored here are splendidly illustrated by the 250 full-color photos covering the breadth of possibilities.
