Library Journal Review

These books take a detailed look at two parts of the home. Porches gives a brief history of trends, types, and uses, while Sleeping Spaces focuses on the bed, discussing history, bedding choices, and nap and rest areas in the home. The strength of both books is the lavish color photographs that depict numerous examples of porches or beds in all different types of styles. Both will be useful in amateur and professional interior design collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
