Luxury Real Estate: Love the idea of living in a cabin, but hate the idea of roughing it? A new coffee table book by Ralph Kylloe highlights cabins that are simultaneously upscale, but also offer a definite rusticity.
Rustic Elegance showcases 13 different rustic-style homes in Montana, Colorado and Connecticut. While all of the cabins are reminiscent of the Lincoln-logs you played with as a child, they each offer a heavy dose of elegance, making them completely modern. Kylloe is a leading authority on rustic furniture and Rustic Elegance highlights the most luxurious elements of the genre, designed by Larry Pearson, AIA. Pearson's work has been featured on HGTV's Spectacular Homes and The Travel Channel.
