From the Publisher. The title Classic & Modern: Signature Styles tells how a signature look can be created by fusing together architectural elements from a variety of styles—from classical to minimalist. It does so presenting a beautiful collection of 21st-century homes that have successfully done just that. With an introduction by Julie V. Iovine, Classic & Modern will appeal to both the design enthusiasts and the design professional because it explains how to blend together styles to create meaningful, captivating, and timeless places to live. Today, many successful books, periodicals, or websites will use terms like the New/Old Modern Country, or Rustic Modern to describe a trend for pursing custom homebuilding or custom remodeling that blend traditional styles with modern aesthetics. Classic & Modern will assure the reader that not only is it possible to do so with highly successful results but also will explain case-by-case what the motivations were for doing so.
